While Trakkers is best known for its popular Sunday trips, some members have discovered that they can enjoy winter even more with a whole weekend! We asked some veterans of weekend trips offered by the club to tell us what they like most.
Weekend destinations offer skiing and snowshoeing options from the door or very close by. There is no rush to make it to the bus. Skiers return when they want to a crackling fire, a warm meal, and wine with fellow Trakkers. Bogna likes that you can sleep in if you desire and have a cozy breakfast in your pajamas.
Quiet Winter Beauty
Spending a whole weekend in nature is rejuvenating. “The weekends provide a great opportunity to trade our hectic city lives for the peace and tranquility of the winter forest” says Weekend Trips Coordinator Barb. Some trips provide the opportunity to explore more remote surroundings than those offered on Sunday trip destinations.
According to Henry, there’s lots more to do than just skiing or snowshoeing. Skating across the lake, saunas, hot tubs, and indoor games are offered by the different weekend destinations. One of last year’s highlights was an evening skate on the torch-lit ice trail at Arrowhead Provincial Park.
“The only disappointing part of the weekend is that it goes by too fast” says Mark.
