About skiTrails.xcOttawa.ca

This site exists to answer one simple question:

"What is the skiing like today?"

It is a derivative of www.xcottawa.ca, without all the razzle-dazzle of the racing team. Reports are submitted by Team XC Ottawa skiers and a crew of volunteer trail reports.


If you feel that you can regularly contribute reports, are capable of filling out an online form with ease and would like to help send us an email. We're especially looking for adventurous skiers who frequent the less popular areas - Mooney's Bay, the Green Belt, Nakkertok and Kanata's Wesley Clover Parks.


Feel free to send us your feedback, suggestions, etc.. info@xcottawa.ca.
