Event descriptionFour days stuffed with six events. The event center at the Rocky Mountain YMCA is offering full accommodation and meals at a very reasonable price as well as programs to fill up the spare time such as a climbing tower, high ropes, and trail rides. The YMCA will also have programs for the kids during the day when they're not orienteering and in the evening so adults can enjoy some quiet time. Barebones 2008 will use some of Canada's best maps. Mt Laurie and the new Barrier Lake offer wonderful forest with intricate contour details. Canmore Nordic Centre offers a complex network of trails and nice forest, ideal for Sprint and Middle distance running. And the Rocky Mountain YMCA map provides great terrain for relay and night-o events. This is it - come and experience the original Barebones weekend.
Holiday activities,nature,hiking etc.Based in the towns of Canmore / Banff, the Rocky Mountains are yours to explore with unlimited adventure.
