Trakkers Broadcast – March

Hello Trakkers!

February has been a full month – we’ve had Sunday Trips to Arrowhead, Highlands Nordic, Georgian Nordic, and Scenic Caves; an excellent weekend trip to Blue Spruce Resort on February 10 to 12 with both regular and new participants; and the Wine and Cheese at Scenic Caves on February 26, which was a great success!

Snow conditions continue to look good and Trakkers is excited to announce we have extended the season for another two weeks. We will be going to Highlands Nordic on Sunday, March 19, and Scenic Caves on Sunday, March 26.

Please continue reading for more information about the year-end party, the Annual General Meeting, and the lost and found.

Seeking volunteers – website administrators

We are looking for website administrators to help our Director of Technology with website maintenance and content updates.

Do you have some technical ability or interest in web development or maintenance? Or do you have some knowledge of HTML and using a Content Management System (CMS) to edit website content? If so, this may be a good fit for you!

A bonus would be if you were  interested in eventually taking over the Director of Technology role – being a website administrator would be a great learning opportunity.

If you are interested or would like to learn more, please email Pascal at

Trakkers Broadcast – January

Hello Trakkers!

Best wishes for a happy new year!

We’re excited to get back on our skis this year and kick off the ski season. Keep doing that snow dance, so we get lots of snow for a nice, long ski season!

Please continue reading for more information about Sunday Trips (registration, rentals, and bus pick up location) and Weekend Trips.

Registration for Sunday Trips

Registration for Sunday Trips is open from Monday to Thursday. For example, registration for the Sunday, January 15, 2023 trip will be open from Monday, January 9 at 9:00 a.m. to Thursday, January 12 at 9:00 p.m.

Tip 1: Register early to avoid disappointment! Trakkers has strict cancellation policies with its bus companies.  If you plan to ski, please don’t wait until Thursday to register as the club has to make decisions early in the week on the number of buses to run.

Tip 2: We recommend paying for your bus fare online at the time of registration. This will make check in faster for you when you arrive at the bus. This means less time standing outside in the cold!

Remember – we go with the snow! Any trip changes or cancellations will be shared on Facebook and Twitter. Please make sure to check online before heading out.

Renting equipment at resorts – pre-booking may be needed

Don’t have skis? Not to worry. We visit resorts that have rentals available.

New for this season: Some resorts require rentals to be booked in advance. Please see our Sunday Trips page for descriptions of each resort. If we are visiting a resort that requires rentals to be booked in advance, we will also provide information on how to do this when we announce the destination. Please read the description of each resort carefully!

Bus pick up location has moved around the corner

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. A map is available on our Sunday Trips page.

More information about why the location has changed can be found on the blog. Click here to read more…

Weekend trip to Blue Spruce Resort – waitlist available

The weekend trip to Blue Spruce Resort on February 10 to 12, 2023 is now full – but there is room on the waiting list. Please contact Henry if interested or for more information at

Details about the weekend trip can be found on our Weekend Trips page.
