Be­fore kids, Les­lie Roberts and hus­band Mike Mc­geough hiked, biked and scram­bled in the moun­tains. Now, as Cal­gary empty nesters, they are re­turn­ing to those loves with not only up­dated gear and re­newed pas­sion, but also a moun­tain town they are mak­ing their home.

The cou­ple has bought a villa in Spring Creek Moun­tain Vil­lage in Can­more. And, in­stead of hav­ing it as just a week­end get­away, their Cal­gary home is up for sale and they will be re­lo­cat­ing to Can­more, less than an hour down the road from the city.

“Our boys are launched, so it was time to get back to the things we en­joyed be­fore kids,” says Roberts.

“We went hik­ing a lot in Can­more last year and hated to leave and come back to Cal­gary. We talked of buy­ing a week­end place and started look­ing six months ago.”
