Great late afternoon ski. Grooming was complete and with the warmer weather things were firming up nicely. Still some softer sections in the skate lane but classic tracks were firm.

Glide in the tracks was very free. Glide in the skate lane was a bit slow as the snow is still sharp and fresh.

Morall and Haycock loops are packed and without tracks. If you want to attempt a skate loop, do so before the next grooming!

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.
