We did the 19-34-6 loop late yesterday afternoon but from P7 rather than P5. The small trails are fine but are needing some fresh snow. The two ski tracks are hard but indistinct. For those of you old enough to remember T-bars at ski hills, the trails in the woods felt like the T-bar ruts after a weekend day of heavy usage. More snow would be welcome.

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
