So much fresh snow at Nakkertok! Grooming had just started when we got there. We first tried to head out on classic, but gave up soon due to my skis icing up completely and no tracks having been groomed yet.

Then changed to skate, which was nice and snowy, though of course still soft. Very pretty out today and warm with just -2! Should be amazing skiing on the weekend. Still snowing lightly up there!

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.
