Having a hard time finding your people? You know, people you actually want to hang out with, who are about your age (30-45ish), and who live in the Bow Valley area?
That’s a tall order. But if you mentally said “Yes, that’s exactly what I’m looking for!” then this group might be for you – keep reading.
This group is for people in Canmore, Banff, and other Bow Valley communities who want to spend their downtime being active and social. Here’s what that looks like:
You’re into recreational activities. You’d rather go to the climbing wall than watch a movie, check out a yoga class than go shopping, or play billiards than attend an art exhibit.
You love the mountains. You think hiking up the side of a mountain in the summer and skiing or boarding down it in the winter is one of the best ways to spend a day.
You’re not intense about fitness. At all. In fact, you’d describe your fitness level as “decidedly average.” (If you are super fit, we won’t hold it against you. Just make sure you’re okay taking it down a notch when you’re with us.)
You’d rather be outdoors. Sitting around a campfire, having a BBQ at home, hanging out at the dog park – you’ll take any opportunity to breathe in the fresh air.
You like social activities. Things like having drinks on the patio in the summer, taking advantage of happy hour specials, watching a hockey game at the pub, or grabbing a beer after a day on the hill.
Most importantly, Canmore is your home. You love taking advantage of all the town has to offer. You want to connect with people who have similar interests. And you’re looking for connections that last for more than a season.
Also, you don’t like cats. (Kidding. Sort of.)
Still interested in joining our group? Then your search is over – we’re your people. Come meet us!
Not sure? There is something to be said for being as inclusive as possible when meeting new people. And there is also something to be said for the opposite. Making friends as an adult isn’t easy – having a common language, age range, location, and shared interests to start from makes it that much easier. Sadly, we're not your people if:
• You have a hard time conversing fluently in English in social settings.
• You’re in your twenties or over the age of 45.
• You stay in Canmore on weekends and live somewhere else during the week.
• You’re just passing through town or plan to move to a different community in the next year or so.
• You're a couch potato. Ask yourself, would you find walking 10 km daunting?
You may not have found your people quite yet, but there are plenty of other great meetups on the site that could be a great fit for you. Or you can start your own. Good luck!
