There are some organized activities as part of the MRFA Retreat on April 30, at 4:00pm


Yoga & Mindfulness in the Mountains: Maurie Maclennan

Join Maurie for a combo of mindfulness and gentle yoga. Members are asked to bring their own yoga mats. This will be held outside, weather permitting. Meet up in the Mount Allan Room at 4:00pm (session will be held in this room if the case of inclement weather).


Mountain Biking in the Rockies: Dawn Rault

Have you ever wanted to try Mountain Biking but don’t know where to start? Let an NCCP-certified mountain bike coach introduce you to the sport in a fun, relaxed, and social environment. Topics covered will include bike and gear selection, bike setup, bike balance, control and maneuvering, trail safety and etiquette and basic maintenance and repair. The clinic is designed for new and novice riders, no experience necessary. Bring your own bike or rent one from Kananaskis Outfitters. Email if you have any questions.  Meet outside of Kananaskis Outfitters by the pond at 4:00pm.


Hiking: Jim Fischer

Join Jim Fischer for a 2 hour hike and take in some nice views of the Kananaskis Valley. Bring appropriate footwear for a hike on trails, not paved routes, suitable clothing for the weather, and water. There will be some elevation gain but we’ll keep it to less than 500 feet. Jim is a hiking guide with the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides and the Interpretive Guides Association. Contact Jim at 6835 or for details. Meet up in the Mount Kidd Manor Foyer at 4:00pm.


Mountain Climbing: Raphael Slawinski

Since the beginning of time humans have had the ambition to conquer what others cannot, to go where others have not and to push themselves to their physical limits. Perhaps there is no better example of this than mankind’s fascination with the sport of rock climbing. Mount Everest, the world’s tallest mountain, comes to mind, and Mount Royal’s own Raphael Slawinski took on this challenge in attempting a new route without fixed ropes or oxygen in 2015, but his expedition was cut short by a magnitude 8.1 earthquake. Prior to that, Raphael earned a nomination for National Geographic’s 2014 Adventurer of the Year for the first ascent of K6 West (7040 m) in Pakistan in 2013. While climbing big mountains is dangerous, rock climbing isn’t; so, please join Raphael for an afternoon of climbing in Kananaskis country. Helmets and other safety gear will be provided to those who register in advance by emailing; no experience is required. Meet up at the registration table at 4:00pm.
