Printable CSA Waiver of Liability and Checklist COVID-19    

Electronic CSA Waiver of Liability and Checklist COVID 19


COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

(May 5, 2021)

The Meanderthals will now allow posting hikes, but due to COVID-19 we want to ensure that everyone follows the special rules shown below:

The guidelines that hiking groups are required to follow are:

– Trips are only allowed in Kananaskis Improvement District and NOT in Banff National Park, Town of Canmore nor the Municipal District of Bighorn.  See the map on the COVID-19 Alberta Statistics website:

No carpooling. Meet at trailheads.

-Maximum of 10 participants per group.

-Always maintain a 2-metre physical distancing from the time you leave the car until you are back in it.

-Do not visit other towns/villages or communities during an outing

-No one should go on a trip if they are in self isolation, quarantine, or if they are experiencing potential COVOD-19 symptoms (dry cough, runny nose, sore throat, fever, fatigue or difficulty breathing).

See Canmore Nordic Centre special protocols:

We also recommend the following:

-Come prepared with your own mask, water, lunch, snacks, hand sanitizer and toilet paper. Plus, regular hiking materials such as a map or GPS, good boots, bear spray, first aid supplies, extra clothing and rainwear. Put your mask on if you come closer than two meters to anyone.

All participants will be required to sign the above waiver and also answer the screening questions at the trailhead.
