Dec 26 (11M, 3w) by Craig Storey from South: Stadium
Trails Skied: Jackrabbit, Powerline, Stadium, Perri's Way, Warm-up Loop, Horseman's Pass, Pond Loops, Waterfall Trail, Morrall Loop, Haycock Mine Loop, #1 heading to North.. [0km], Glide Wax: vauhti blue, Grip Wax: Vauhti tar -1..-6, vauhti fluor carrot
Nice morning for a ski before the wind came up. There was fresh grooming around the stadium for the Boxing Day But off (looked like fun!). There was also fresh compacting on horseman's pass and outer pon, Morally and Haycock mine and the new trail along the power line to connect to the outer trails. Decent coverage, a bit soft and a few twigs, bumps and dirt but great skiing for minimal snow! Yes we have 30cn of fluff on the ground but that compacts to a thin base. The coming cold system will held firm things up. Another pass of the groomer will smooth it out and there will be excellent claddic skiing out of the wind later this week.

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.
