$8 on the bus!!!

YYC - Public Buses

I think we should have a mini Calgary area meet one of these days out here (there's at least 10 regular members in the area...)

But yeah, the hills are great just feel your way around. The green-blue-black Ontario vs. "Big Hill" debate doesn't really have much merit. SOME blue squares here are long enough and steep enough to be labelled as blacks in Ontario, but they'll be plenty wide enough to be safe. The blacks are solid blacks, but then the crazy terrain gets labelled as double black, or "cliff" or avalanche area, etc.

Just follow the main trails at first and you'll be fine.
