With Eastern's at Nakkertok South the weekend the LTS crowd was up enjoying Nakkertok North. The conditions were fabulous - groomed wide, firm and lots of fresh snow on Sunday afternoon.

If you are looking for an adventure North doesn't get much more inviting or forgiving than it is right now.

I'm also told the North-to-South route is groomed for those looking to scout it out before the Weber Loppet.

About Skiing at Nakkertok..


Nakkertok has a network of about 75km of skating, classical and backcountry trails at two locations just north of Ottawa in the Gatineau Hills.


General Info: Driving Directions | Trail Maps | Trail Conditions | Grooming Activity Report.


Nakkertok South is the main attraction offering groomed skating and classic skiing, chalets, races and children's programming. There are lit trails for night skiing. Club membership, or a day-use fee required for skiing.


Nakkertok North trails are quite demanding, and only occasionally groomed (Fridays). They offer a refreshing backcountry wilderness experience for those with good skiing skills. The trails at Nakkertok North are almost always quiet. The annual Nakkerloppet event in February is a great opportunity to discover these trails by making the North to South crossing.
