Welcome to Trakkers!

Trakkers is a volunteer, non-profit, recreational ski club dedicated to the support and enjoyment of cross-country skiing and has been providing Sunday ski trips in luxury highway coaches to Southern Ontario ski resorts for over 30 years.

Trakkers welcomes members of all ages and all skill levels, from novice to the expert. Trakkers is the club for you if you want to learn to ski or improve your skills.

Members are entitled to free ski lessons taught by CANSI certified instructors. Lessons are for all ages & levels!

Membership registration for the 2017-18 ski season is now open! See our Join page for details.

Trakkers' first Sunday trip is scheduled for Sunday, December 17th.

We are scheduled to go to Highlands Nordic which is located on the top of the escarpment and close to Georgian Bay. This destination usually has excellent snow conditions and a long ski season, but with most resorts just opening this coming weekend we can't be quite certain about conditions for our first trip. There is snow in the forecast for almost every day leading up to our trip, so please do a snow dance and let's hope for the best! We will post updates as the date nears. It might be wise for you to dust off your rock skis. There is no information as yet about how much of the trail system will be useable. The Highlands Lodge has an excellent cafeteria, boxed lunch room, rentals, pro shop, area for repairs and waxing facilities.

Please note that, based on our attendance record in previous years, we have chartered only one coach. Please register early to ensure a seat.
