Ginzu grooming this morning on the Nakkertrak. Double classic tracks set, 4 on each side of stadium. Excellent conditions, except on the Sprint Loop and Play Park which are still in fair condition for now. Note Nakkertrak will be closed Dec 15,16 all day and Dec 17 to 1 pm, due to our Candy Cane Cup race. Signup on or come out and cheer.

It is possible to ski on other trails with rock skis. They have been rolled, however there are wet spots. A bit more snow is needed before the full circuit is open.

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.
