Trails Skied: 10 [4km], Glide Wax: universal, Grip Wax: polar as binder and green for grip
This report covers the Limoges side of the Larose Forest accessed via Indian Creek Road. Fresh grooming for both classic and skate this morning. Base is hard but the classic tracks are mostly powder with a few stretches that are icey/crusty. Skiing was fast and effortless. Green wax worked perfectly. Could have double polled the whole circuit it was that quick!

About Skiing in the Green Belt..


The National Capital Greenbelt has over 100km of trails and another 25km of recreational pathways, most of which are suitable for cross-country skiing in the wintertime. All of the trails are suitable for beginner and family outings.


Thanks to the Nakkertok Nordic Ski Club, Orleans Nordic Ski Club and Kanata Nordic Ski Club for their volunteer grooming of various Green Belt trails from time to time. The city of Ottawa and the NCC would like to encourage urban skiing, so if you appreciate the grooming let your councilor, the city and the NCC know!


ONSC grooms The Hornet's Nest (Tauvette street to Montreal Rd), Mer Bleue and Pine Grove Forest (the section off Leitrum Rd). Trails are classic skiing ONLY, no skating is allowed on these trails. The Hornet's Nest is groomed at least weekly and the others as time permits. Updated trail conditions are available at the snow phone; 613-837-SNOW.
