    A few of us Albertans have been talking about a Mountain Meet Up. We are thinking sometime in July or August of 2007, in and around the Jasper & Banff area. Check out some of Cyber Surfer's photos for a sample of the scenery in the area.

    Camping is definitely an option :thumbsup:...but there are hotels in the towns around the area.

    Ideally, this would be a week long meet-up...but we can certainly make arrangements for people who can only make it out for a couple of days.

    If you are interested, sign up in this thread. Feel free to make any suggestions or ask questions.

    Hope to see you there.

    I'm looking to be moving to Vancouver for next summer.
    So maybe I'll be able to make this if all goes to plan.
    *fingers crossed*

    Was there this early summer...incredible place (don't think I ever posted my pix). I went relatively early (in mid-June) and camped the whole time, although by the time I left, it was getting fairly crowded, so it might be wise to book in advance...I'm sure the hotels fill up much faster.

    I would have to say I would probably be more up to packing it in at a hotel, but, I am all for hiking :)

    I'm in if I'm home. I'm done school in July sometime. I should hopefully be able to make it. There are some good bike trails in that area too....

    If I’m not mistaking the new US/Canada passport requirements will go in to effect next year? So I will need to get mine.

    Don't forget the Calgary stampede and exhibition is held July 10,20th. Accommodation is very sparse in and around Calgary then.
