Multi-Day Programs & Specialty Hikes

Step Out, Rejuvenate, Relax, Sleep Well. If you are always thinking about getting away but never seem to find the time then these are the getaways for you! Treat yourself to a healthy day or weekend away with Rocky Mountain hikes, wonderful food at local restaurants, witty conversation and lots of fresh mountain air!

On the multi-day getaways, we’ll follow-up a great day of fresh-air, physical activity and scenery with a fun mountain town or remote wilderness hostel where you can relax and recharge. The hostel getaways are fully catered, all-inclusive programs with shared dorm-style accommodation. When we base in a mountain town, you choose your own accommodation; B&B, Inn’s or a hotel, there are  many wonderful spots to kick off your hiking boots and relax.* When in a mountain town, we’ll choose a restaurant for the evening meal and you can let us know if you’d like to join us. The Club Fit Frog organizer will choose a hotel as a base so if you want to stay with the group, you may do so. These mountain town based multi-day hike & snowshoe getaways are a wonderful mix of organized outings  and flexible evenings in a fun town where you can create your own perfect getaway. All multi-day getaways are a great chance to hang out with a group of fellow hikers, eat scrumptious food and get loads of fresh air and exercise. Specialty hikes and snowshoe are trips that fall outside the regular Club Fit Frog session membership. They might be longer days that require a night of accommodation in the mountains or an extra early start to drive to the trailhead.

*Let us know if you’d like a roommate or accommodation suggestion, and we’ll do our best to help.

Winter 2015

Snowshoe  (XC Ski option), Lake Louise and Yoho
DATES TBA ( or contact us for a custom outing!)based in Field, BCCost: $250 per person* two days or $350 three days

 

 

Description: We’ll snowshoe in the Field area one day and then have the option to ski on the track set trails or snowshoe the following day (or maybe a bit of both!). Snowshoeing is as easy as walking but much more fun. You burn off the winter blahs as you follow a well-laid trail or break your own in the endless powder-fresh snow. Snowshoeing is an activity that is accessible to everyone. It takes no technical ability and with Fit Frog you can pace for pleasure as you pounce through powder or relax and enjoy as you follow the beaten track. You learn how to get up and down hills, to pace for endurance and enjoyment, and how to choose safe trails that suit your fitness level. Skiing takes some technical skill to ensure you can get up and down hills safely. If you have never xc skied or have not is a very long time, then it is best to take a lesson before joining us on recreational skiing. COP (Canada Olympic Park) offers XC ski lessons.

 

Details: This getaway includes 2 snowshoe and ski outings or independent exploration, 1 organized dinners if you’d like to join the group and help with organizing shared accommodation. The Fireweed Hostel in Field is an economical choice, however, Field is the winter is very economical wherever you stay. The Kicking horse Lodge is a great choice  as well with a “Stay 2 nights and get the third free option“. The rooms start at $90. There are also many Inns and B&B’s in Field. All of these are a stones throw from each other since Field is very tiny.

 

Carpool Option: When possible, carpooling will be arranged from the meet place.

What to Bring: Please read through the what to bring list.

To register please pay $250 or $350  (Pay with credit card online on our registration page or by cheque). Register now!

These are all nice options at various price-points.

I have reserved some rooms with 4 beds each for anyone who would like them. You will have 2-4 people maximum in your room and these will only be people from the Club Fit Frog program.
