What about what about Nordegg, Canmore, Lake Louise?

Nordegg's (1.5-2 hrs from Red Deer) an old coal mining town with some nice hikes, nice climbing and a pretty laid back atmosphere.

Lake Louise (3 hours from Red Deer) is nuts. I stopped in about three years a go and I don't think I'm going back for a long time...frinck'n tourists...

Canmore (2 hrs from Red Deer) is a nice town, busy but not as touristy as Banff.

As for climbing, there are hundreds and hundreds of climbs. Visit Rocky Mountain Books for a list of guide books. As small city's go Red Deer's not that bad...
