Hey folks,

Through Google search, I was relayed back to an old 2004 myccr thread that I figured could either use revival or, preferably, a new edition altogether as it seems things tend to change with outfitters as we all know.

Here are a couple of options that I've dug up.

Gatineau Park: ... ons-winter
- offers options of yurts, cabins, and four-season tents
- popular -- need to book early!

Algonquin Basecamp:
- seem to be doing trial runs of 4-season tents for hut-to-hut skiing
- snowtrekker tents on the way for rental
- call for more information closer to your intended adventure date

Silent Lake yurts
- more like a yurt that is conveniently positioned alongside the early KM of the ski trail, but it's still an option
- book early or hope to get lucky with a cancellation -- these guys book up quickly
- also offers ice fishing (lake trout)

Any others to share?

great post. We are running a winter camping / trekking program this year for Woodland Caribou Provincial Park. We have Snowtrekker Tents, UHMWPE toboggans, snowshoes and ski's all for rent. It's a great opportunity to see some amazing Boreal back country. Here is a link to our winter program ... -pacakges/

Smoothwater has cabins on a trail system in Temagami. Cabins are maybe 6-8 km apart, had amazing snow on our trip a number of years ago. Also had to jump off the trail when sled dogs came barreling around the corner on James Lake. The food was amazing when we stayed another night at the base. Organic lamb…nom nom nom. Did I mention their sauna ? ;)

In Manitoba there is a hut in Spruce Woods and Turtle Mtn Provincial Parks plus another in Riding Mtn National Park. Not so much hut to hut but ski out stay then ski back. Spruce Woods does have 3 huts but technically only one is intended for residence, the others are supposed to be emergency only though people do stay in them.
As long as they are happy sharing and don't try to lock folk out I have no problem but I have heard of situations where folk have tried to lock others out even in really foul weather. This used to happen some times in the bothies in Scotland though the unwritten rule was that there was always room for one more.
