Weekend Trips

Love winter! Join us on a winter weekend getaway! 

Trakkers offers 2-3 overnight weekend trips each season for members. In order to get in lots of skiing, we look for accommodations near ski resorts or ski trails. We are unable to coordinate transportation for these trips, so participants are responsible for their own transportation.

Watch this space for more information on what we’re offering for the 2021-2022 season!
