With Christmas and New Year’s Eve officially in the rearview mirror, it’s time to start planning your next family reunion to Elk Lake Wilderness Resort on the Montreal River. A family reunion could be closer than you think. Our family-friendly waterfront resort is one of the premier snowmobiling hubs for large family gatherings. Many of these families travel from all across Ontario and Quebec for a well-deserved week-long wintertime family reunion. There are several reasons that families choose our tranquil, beautiful winter paradise for a reunion, including our superior-level of customer service, delicious hand-delivered dinners, and pristine backcountry Ontario snowmobiling.
Backcountry Ontario Snowmobiling
What’s incredible about the backcountry Ontario snowmobiling near Elk Lake Wilderness Resort is that it’s so diverse, secluded, and adventurous. Your entire family could traverse through our fresh powder and never see another rider the whole day. You could also ride all week long and never embark on the route twice. A lot of the nearby trails tend to close in late March, but you’ll always discover untouched backcountry snow within minutes of Elk Lake. There are several abandoned mines in the area and even a rare adit. Bring your snowshoes because these long-forgotten mines are perfect for snowshoeing. Many family reunions, large and small, also ride to nearby lakes for afternoons spent ice fishing. If you follow Cooke Lake Road, you’ll quickly discover that there are hundreds of kilometres of logging roads just waiting to be explored.
Premium Snowmobile Trails
While we highly suggest exploring our pristine backcountry, you’ll also want to carve through the vast array of groomed snowmobile trails in the area. We have quickly become one of the premier winter resorts in Ontario, Canada, because of our proximity to over 1,000 kilometres of groomed snowmobile trails. Read this blog, or visit the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs’ website for more information on local trails. We know this region like the back of our hand; if you have any questions about trails upon arrival, please just ask.
Family Time at Elk Lake Wilderness Resort
Our forte here at Elk Lake Wilderness Resort is providing every last guest with the best customer service imaginable. Mary-Jo, Rodger, and Liz genuinely care about each guest, which is why we provide hand-delivered dinners to our two or three-bedroom cabins. Just let us know in advance what and when you would like your meal, and it’ll be delivered in person and on time with a smile. Many family reunions prefer pizza parties inside the Elk Lake Wilderness Kitchen. You’ll quickly fall in love with our homemade pizza recipes. Don’t forget to warm up inside an on-site wood-fired sauna after an exhilarating day in the vast Northern Ontario wilderness.
