Anyone going on the August 10-16 trip? 2 couples flying from Chicago on the 9th. Hope to see comments from those going in June and July. Thanks
Nancy Serna Jun 29, 2014 at 04:00 PM

Arriving from SFO august 9th, staying one night at the Bow Valley Inn Calgary, will meet the shuttle at the airport on August 10th.

has anyone gotten any feedback/ack from the company that is actually doing the trip on the food/pickup form? I sent via email 2 times and have had no reply. I would like to get an emergency number for pickup in case there is some problem finding the pickup people.
Marilyn Garcia Jun 24, 2014 at 10:31 PM

I was wondering the same thing. I sent the form via email 2 weeks ago and asked for confirmation, but I have not received a reply.
Robert Grimes Jun 26, 2014 at 09:50 AM

I faxed the company a note asking to reply. I got a reply almost immediately to an email I sent about a month ago with all the info and an appology.
Robert Grimes Jun 26, 2014 at 09:51 AM

BTW: the fax number was at the bottom of the transportation/meal form. It is a company in Canda, not RoadsScholar

Liza Whiting Jun 22, 2014 at 11:38 AM

I am flying into Calgary on July 13th ! Should be a fun week. Liza Whiting


Robert Grimes Jun 04, 2014 at 06:33 PM

My wife and I will be taking the trip July 20-26 from Phoenix.
Nancy Serna Jun 05, 2014 at 12:38 PM

Our trip is in august. please continue to post regarding your experience.
Jane Black Jun 26, 2014 at 05:57 PM

My husband Rob and I will be on the July 20 trip. We are arriving midday on the 20th from New York.
Nancy Serna Jun 29, 2014 at 04:06 PM

We are taking the August 10th trip. So excited. Let us know how it went/,& were you prepared for the weather? we are from Northern California, our weather is very hot this time of year. when we hike in the Sierra we are often in shirt sleeves. I hope we are emotionally prepared for much colder climate.
Robert Grimes Jun 30, 2014 at 10:24 AM

Right now our lows are much higher than the highs we will see on the trip. I probably will need long underwear for the night!!!!


Arlene Weinsier May 10, 2014 at 04:56 PM

Will already be in Calgary and am looking for a ride out to Canmore on Sunday July 13th. If anyone would like some company, please let me know. Otherwise, I will look for a bus. Arlene956@gmail.com
Nancy Serna Jun 05, 2014 at 12:44 PM

Arlene: check yur travel documents, there is the number of the transportation company, they pick up at the airport, but you have to make arrangements in advance.
Arlene Weinsier Jun 05, 2014 at 02:57 PM

Thank you Nancy. I also say that and it is included in our tour if you take the particular one they book. If you go at a different time, you are on your own. I'm coming the week before to spend some time with my daughter who lives in Calgary.
Nancy Serna Jun 05, 2014 at 03:20 PM

I did find a greyhound bus depot in Calgary, I'll bet they travel out to Canmore. All other transportation seems to leave, only, from the airport.


Nancy Serna Feb 05, 2014 at 07:35 PM

My friends and I will arrive Calgary the day before the tour. Renting a car for the week. We will explore Calgary for a few hours before we head out to Canmore on the 10th. See you all there.
Nancy Serna Jun 05, 2014 at 12:41 PM

Change of plans. We will meet the bus at the airport. I spoke to transportation company, they advised the cost is INCLUDED in our tour price. We shall see?..


Susan Brainard Jul 10, 2013 at 05:55 PM

My husband and I will be on the Aug. 11 -17 trip. We are from Schenectady, NY and would like to correspond withothersin the group.

Mary Lutz Jul 24, 2013 at 05:26 PM

Susan, My husband and I will be on that same trip. We are from Lincoln NE and looking forward to hiking the Rockies. Mary.
Susan Brainard Aug 04, 2013 at 04:39 PM

we have been very busy with a visit from family and the death of my father so we have not "prepared" for this trip. have you been hikong a lot?
Nancy Serna Jun 05, 2014 at 03:28 PM

They have more than one level of hikes. Make sure you have good hiking boots/shoes, comfortable clothes (layers) and a pair of treking poles. You should be fine,


Margaret Coffey May 25, 2013 at 12:53 PM

I've enrolled in the August 11-17 program, and I'd like to spend a couple days exploring Calgary after the program. Anyone interested in exploring with me, and perhaps sharing a hotel room?
Susan Brainard Jul 16, 2013 at 10:11 AM

Hi Margaret, we also are planning on staying a bit longer but do not know what we will do with our time. We have only reserved a room at the airport for our last night. there is a big international festival in Calgary.... We might like to be out hiking in a park. Still looking at ideas.
