Blue Spruce Cottages

This year’s Blue Spruce weekend’s timing co-incided with excellent winter and Cross Country Ski conditions, much better than we have had for years. The combination of warmer weather, lots of snow coupled with the comradeship of the Trakkers family make for a great weekend.

Looking out the window, over the snowman down to the frozen lake was very peaceful and relaxing experience. The big snowflakes falling from the sky, were like memories of the first snow back in the day. Enjoying the time with the members of the extended Trakkers family whom individually made an effort to make it enjoyable, truly was the icing on the cake. When can I sign up for it again for next year?

I guess we will find the skier in April once all the snow has melted!
