We have added a Forum page to our website ("FORUM" in Menu Bar at top of the page) in order to:

  • Build a community of Kananaskis trail users, hikers, backcountry skiers, and snowshoers. It's your Outdoor Forum, and how it evolves will depend on if, and how, you use it. While there are other sites that cater to Scramblers and Mountain Bikers, we will be happy to add new forums for them if required.
  • Allow better discussion of our blog topics than blog "comments" currently does. We have the ability to create a forum topic from a blog and, though we haven't tried it yet, a blog from a forum topic. Please bear with us as we experiment with the new software!

The Kananaskis Outdoor Forum page at present contains two Groups, each with three Forums (Hiking Trails, Snowshoe Trails and Information & Issues are all Forums.)

The first Group, Kananaskis Country Trails, is for questions about trails, information on new trails, updates on trail alignment, etc. The forum Information & Issues is intended for discussion about trails in general.

The second Group, Kananaskis Country Information, is for any matters not specifically concerning trails that may be of interest to anyone who uses Kananaskis Country. For instance discussions on MeetUp Groups or the Alberta Hiker's Association would be appropriate. There is a forum on Eateries and Watering Holes in this group. Finally, there is a forum Outdoor Gear for gear and electronic toys.

We hope you like, and use, the new Forums. As usual, we welcome your comments (via the General Information forum) and ideas.

The Forum, Simple:Press Forum is designed to work with our blogging platform, Wordpress and our site's theme Thesis.

As current chair of the Alberta Hiking Association, I will be keeping an eye on this forum to help keep me abreast of hikers' concerns.

Is this the inheritance of the old RMB forum, or is that one still reincarnating in a different form? 

Is this now meant to replace comments on the blog?  I noticed comments were closed on old posts, but you might just have a time limit I hadn't before noticed.

Clayton – I had ticks crawling all over the place March 27th at Yam Bluffs, but haven't yet run into them anywhere else.  Pasque flowers and ungulate poop all over Mesa Butte on April 4, but surprisingly no ticks.

Hi Rachel,

No, this is not replacing the RMB forum which will be up and running on the new RMB site soon in a new format, but just covering scrambling, backcountry skiing and alpine climbing ( unless anyone wishes otherwise?). This forum will cover ANYTHING to do with Kananaskis.

Tony closed the comments from a few of the recent blogs where the posts had been made into a forum topic, to encourage people to use the forum to make their comments. All comments in older blogs are still open.  We are still experimenting!

Okay, that all makes sense.  Thanks for explaining.  I think that covers the RMB forums that were actually active.  

One thing I'm noticing here - is there no 'reply' button at the bottom of the page?  I read through a series of posts, then decide to reply, and have to go back to the top to do so.  If I'm not just missing something, that would be really great to add, if the forum is customizable in such a way.
