Sheila Powell

I have been retired for several years now and enjoy many activities in the outdoors such as hiking, cycling, skiing, backpacking. I have lived in Canada for the last 35 years and spent a great deal of time exploring the Rockies, K-country, Kootenays and parts of BC.

I get out on a hike, ski or cycle ride several times a week either with the club or family and enjoy running multi day trips as well as day outings. I will lead fairly strenuous, moderate to steady paced outings as well as some starter outings.

    Hi Sheila, I really want to go on this trip, and don’t want to miss the booking, as I did with the Waterton booking. Anyway, I will attempt to keep a close eye on things going forward!
