Sunday, March 3rd , 2024 - Georgian Nordic

On Sunday March 3rd, Trakkers will be going to Georgian Nordic.

This is a beautiful destination near Parry Sound. With more than 30 km of trails winding through lush forest, Georgian Nordic offers great cross country skiing for the novice through to the expert.   It includes a wide range of terrains including frozen lakes, pristine forest and punching climbs to get your heart rate up.  

There is a comfy chalet, indoor washrooms, classic and skate ski rentals.

This is an 8 a.m. departure from Indian Road (behind the Keele Subway Parking lot)

If you are booked and need to cancel please do so before 9 p.m. Thursday otherwise you will not be refunded.  

Georgian Nordic does not offer food service so make sure you bring enough food, snacks and water for the day. 

Departure time from Georgian Nordic – 4:15 pm.  The Chalet closes at 4 pm so the bus will depart at 4:15 (not 4:30)

Cash required for Sunday trip –please ensure you have cash for the trail pass (Adult $18) and the long distance surcharge ( Adult - $10) for a total of $28.

Trail Conditions

 Georgian Nordic did get the rain earlier in the week creating some ice, there is up to 10 cm of snow in the forecast over the next 48 hours so hopefully mother nature will co-operate and with some grooming make for better conditions.

 

Bus departure point location

The pick- up location is on Indian Road, just north of Bloor Street West, underneath the subway overpass, by the entrance of the Keele subway station parking lot.  (Note: the buses can no longer park on Bloor Street due to the bike lanes).
