Very hard packed trails today. Some were loosened up a bit, which made for good skate skiing, otherwise very abrasive and fast. Classic tracks looked in excellent shape, though a base binder seemed a good idea. The fresh snow tonight and tomorrow will certainly make for excellent weekend skiing in slightly warmer temperatures.

It was again sunny with blue ski, but getting cloudy around 4 when I left, making the -14 feel quite a bit colder in the wind!

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.
