Rocky Mountain Over the Hill Gang is a group of hikers/bikers/skiers and, most importantly, friends over 50. In other words, a bunch of folks “of a certain age” (definitely NOT old) who love to get out and do and prove we don’t have any feet in the grave yet! In addition, food ranks high on our priority list so most activities include eating one way or another. In the past we have sponsored everything from ethnic dinners to raft trips, to castle visits, as well as our outdoor activities.
Over the Hill Gang, International disbanded all its chapters in the Fall of 2005. We, as the Rocky Mountain (Front Range area) Chapter, feel very lucky to have found the CMC and a real opportunity to not only survive, but thrive as we continue with the CMC. My favorite description is that this is a marriage made in Colorado, which, we all know is almost heaven! Be advised that since most of us are retired, a majority of our activities are during the week in an attempt to avoid crowds.
We look forward to meeting you and welcome those over 50 who would like to join us in our quest for outdoor fun and the elusive fountain of youth. We think we may have spotted it on any number of ski, bike and hiking trails in and around nearby mountains. Ergo, it is our mission to get out there and capture the moment, if not the fountain itself! Come join us!
