Love winter! Join us on a winter weekend getaway! 

Below are the weekend trips offered during the 2023-2024 season.


Blue Spruce Cottages - Feb. 9th to Feb 11th 2024

Trakkers is offering one weekend trip for our members this coming winter.

Blue Spruce Cottages are reserved for Trakkers for nights of Friday, Feb 9 and Saturday, Feb 10, 2024. 

Five of our favorite cottages are reserved (1, 2, 3, 8, 12), for a total of 25 guests.  Cost is $155 pp for members, $165 for guests.

Blue Spruce Cottages are located east of Huntsville, on hwy 60.  Algonquin Park is a little further east.

All cottages are well kept and well equipped.  There is a fully equipped kitchen. Bedding and ample towels are provided.  The 3 bedroom cottages have two bathrooms and the 2 bedroom cottages have one bathroom.  All have some single beds.

All have a nice living room area, and wood fireplace with one starter log.  Propane BBQ outside.

Blue Spruce Resort has its own well-groomed and track-set trail system (classic).  They have an ice Skating rink out on the lake (cleared, flooded and lit), and toboggan run.

At Algonquin Park, they have an excellent trail system, groomed and track set, which is all never too busy. Part way around the West Gate trails, they have a heated cabin for your lunch.  Snowshoeing, anywhere you like.

Arrowhead Provincial Park (the ONLY place up there for skate-skiing) is near Huntsville and restaurants are around there, too.

Check the Provincial Park system ahead of time as they have an online registration protocol, to be paid ahead of time. When you sign up for this weekend, you’ll be provided with all the information you’ll need.

Ski or snowshoe rental is available across the street from Blue Spruce at the Algonquin Outfitters (also in Arrowhead Park, if you go there).

Participants OFTEN take the whole Friday off, so check with your ride.

Please NOTE that it’s best to reserve your spot before Jan 10, 2024, as cottages will need to be removed by then, according to Blue Spruce policy. Check after this date, as there still may be something available or someone may need to cancel.

Please email Turn on JavaScript! to inquire further.  I will provide greater detail and what beds and bedrooms are still available.

We will be happy to have you come aboard!!!

All are welcome!
