Beautiful morning for a ski! Unlike the past few weeks it was -2C which felt warm despite strong wind.

Fresh grooming on 80% of the trail system by the time we arrived at 10am, and grooming was still going on when we left at noon. Everything was in excellent shape. All that fresh snow has enabled them to level the stadium and take the bumps out of all the trails. Tracks were still soft as what looks like 20-30cm of fresh powder will take quite a few passes to compress, but the warmer air was helping. Glide was excellent, and grip was very good.

Should be some great skiing all week. Take advantage before the rain and cold the end of the 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.
