Suspension of January Sunday Trips

Earlier this month, Ontario moved into a Modified Step Two until at least January 26, 2022. Due to the continuing high case counts and these increased restrictions, we are suspending our Sunday Trips for the month of January. The first trip will be delayed to February 6, 2022.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and share further updates as they arise.

For those who have purchased membership and those who are interested in purchasing membership, please be assured that we do not intend to keep your membership fee if we are not able to offer Sunday Trips this season.

Delaying the start of the season

Being able to provide a safe, enjoyable experience is really important to us!

Trakkers will need to follow guidance from the Province, public health, and the ski resorts we visit. In light of rapidly increasing case counts and potential changes in restrictions, we will be delaying the start of our Sunday Trips to at least January 23, 2022.

For those who have purchased membership and those who are interested in purchasing membership, your membership fees will be refunded if we are not able to offer any activities this season.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely. Our Board will be meeting after the holidays to determine next steps.

Best wishes for a wonderful holiday season and we hope to see you in the New Year!

Happy memories? Let us know!

For many of us, Trakkers has not only been a great way to get out of the city to go cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter, but also a wonderful way to meet great people. Many of us have developed new friendships through Trakkers – people with whom we now regularly ski and perhaps with whom we also do other activities outside of Trakkers. Have you developed new friendships through Trakkers (recently or long ago)?

In the coming months, we’d like to feature some stories in our blog about some of our members and the friendships they’ve made / experiences they’ve had.  If you’d be willing to answer just a few questions, please email membership@trakkers.ca and we’ll send you a brief questionnaire. Let’s share our love of winter and keep Trakkin’!

First Sunday Ski Trip scheduled for January 9, 2022!

Trakkers plans to reopen its Sunday Trips starting Sunday, January 9, 2022. The club has developed COVID-19 safety procedures to protect participants and volunteers. To participate in a Sunday Trip members must be fully vaccinated. Please read the full procedure here: https://trakkers.ca/covid-19-safety.html

Please check the Trakkers website at trakkers.ca for a list of our planned destinations and their policies. It continues to be a changing situation with screening, masking and social distancing policies in place, as well as limits on time spent in and capacity in buildings. Please check the Trakkers website regularly for updates.

The bus pick up location has changed!

The bus pick up location has moved just around the corner. It is now on Indian Road, just north of Bloor Street West, underneath the subway overpass, by the entrance of the Keele subway station parking lot.

We are recruiting bus captains!

Being a bus captain is a great way to meet people and help out the club at the same time! An upcoming training session is scheduled for January via Zoom.

This important role involves signing members in as they arrive at the bus, checking proof of vaccination, and collecting bus fare and trail fees. You will receive free bus fare for every trip you are a bus captain!

If interested, please contact buscaptains@trakkers.ca for more information.
