Trails Skied: #50, #36 (black), #36 (blue) [22.1km], Glide Wax: Rode GLF Blue, Grip Wax: Rode Super Blue
It's not like we needed another 20cms of snow to make the Gatineau Loppet conditions good at this point, but it can't hurt. We skied the 36 and the 50 today and both were in immaculate condition for either classic or skate. The base was firm with some granular and fresh snow mixed together, but by the time we got back the tracks were filled with fresh snow and it sounds like it will continue to pile up all night.

Gatineau Park is ski paradise! The network of ski trails offer machine groomed skate skiing and classic skiing as well as little groomed backcountry trails. Multiple access points allow skiers to access a variety of terrain and scenery. The NCC offers season or daily pay rates.

For suggestions on where to ski, excellent trail descriptions, photos and maps checkout Michael McGoldrick`s website about recreational xc-skiing in Canada`s National Capital Region (with an emphasis on the Gatineau Park).

The NCC also maintains a grooming report on-line. If you encounter people walking on groomed trails, you are best advised to contact the NCC. They are responsible for the enforcement on this so report those trail wreckers whenever you see them by calling 819-827-2020 (Visitor Centre), or email
