    As luck would have it I'll be in Algonquin at the Mew Lake campground that weekend with another group. Depending on the disposition of the EGL group the campground would probably be a good quiet option, and a good base for heading out snowshoeing or whatever.

    Thanks Brian, but I'd prefer that anyone interested post their responses on this thread. For a bigger hang, perhaps..

    I think I'm working those dates, sounds like fun though. I was up snowshoeing in APP a few days ago. I'd say there's about a foot and a half of snow on the ground.

    Mooching? That would suggest we weren't trying to give the extra food away!

    Looks promising for snowshoeing. Here's to hoping that you can join us for some or all of the weekend.

    Here's Algonquin's Snowmobile Club's webcam pictures from the West side of the park.

    It's nice to see you guys in Ontario have the gumption to get together for hangs. Out here in Alberta it seems a little harder. Maybe there are just less of us around out here. Maybe someday I will head out east for a road trip, and bump into some of you.

    Hey guys,

    Things have been pretty quiet on this thread, so I'm wondering if there's still much interest in getting out this winter. Could be the dates; could be the venue. Could simply be a question of "Hang Fatigue" in what's turning out to be a very busy new year.

    Post a reply or drop me a PM and we'll see what's turns up.

    Note: I'll be heading up to Algonquin's McIntosh Lake after lakers as soon as the ice is out at the end of April/early May. It'll be posted as an EGL hang and everyone's welcome. One caveat though; it's a longer trip across some larger, cold water lakes and requires moderate to advanced flatwater tripping experience. This is one of my favorite spring routes and has always been a good time. Send me a PM if you're interested.

    I don't think it's the dates. It could be the weird winter weather this season, or lack thereof. Unless I missed something, the venue is currently listed as "Within 1 hour of the Algonquin Park West gate".

    Cheers

    I have been following trip and just waiting to book time off. I hope it's a go I'm in looking forward to winter trip. I was wondering is this a place where we can ice fish? If so what are we fishing for?

    There will be a bunch of winter photography and winter camping workshops in Mew Lake campground apperently. The group i'll be with is making quinzees (assuming there will be snow...) Im sure lots of people would be very interested in how we hang. Would blow a lot of minds Im sure.. If youre all looking for something more solitary i understand, but ill be there with a big group of great guys and the more the merrier. Sites are first come first serve, but if there are people in on friday they can claim a couple.
