Rockies Day Hikes, Snowshoe & XC-Ski
Throughout the spring, summer and fall Club Fit Frog coordinates hikes north, south, east and west of Calgary. These hikes are categorized as mini-wilderness or full day wildeeress hikes in the calendar of hike. Along with a hike organizer you’ll explore grasslands and badlands, foothills and mountain meadows, Rocky Mountain ridge-tops and peaks. There are a variety of hikes to choose from. If you have never tried hiking or you are just starting an active lifestyle than try one of our mini-wilderness hikes, 3 ish hour hikes that are within a 30 minute drive from Calgary. Our All Level (AL) hikes; up to 4 hours of trail time let you experience the exhilaration of a mountain meadow or fossil-filled badlands without the fear of exhaustion. Or join Our Moderate (MOD) hikes take you to lakes, ridge tops and panoramic viewpoints. These 4-6 hour hikes follow well-laid trail as well as some trails with tree roots and rocks. Intermediate (INT) hikes have up to 800 metres elevation gain. Some short hikes have been classified intermediate because of the steep grade of the trail. They follow creek-beds and canyons, grassy ridges and scree-slopes. Advanced (ADV) hikes will have all that the intermediate hikes have but they cover more ground. Be prepared for up to 1000 metres of elevation and 8-10 hours of hiking over varied terrain.
FAMILY FUN hikes for members! Bring your family (kids, spouse, partner, adult helper) on designated “FAMILY FUN” outings for no extra fee. How hikes work with families.The group will split into adults/kids hiking further/faster and families (one parent and the kids- or two parents) hanging back and pacing slower. The faster group will hike further and then backtrack to meet the slower group on the way back. This allows kids to pace for enjoyment, not for destination.
Throughout the winter Club Fit Frog coordinates snowshoe treks, cross-country ski days and multi-day-lodge trips. 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. You can choose outings that suit your fitness level by checking the level of difficulty listed beside each outing. Our cross-country ski outings are for those who know how to ski, who are comfortable going up and down hills and skiing in track set, and just want to get out there with a group and enjoy 3-5 hours of skiing.
