It doesn't get better than today. It was one of those skiing days you dreak about: -10C at 9am, no wind, fresh grooming on Ridge and the parkways, everything packed full width and fast snow. What more could you ask for? Ok, a full day off would be nice. But sneak away if you can. Your not feeling well and NEED to see a GP! A couple of hours is a sure cure for that snow flu that's going around.

Burma was yesterday's grooming, in good condition and holding up well. At 9am there were only 2 cars at P5 and by 11am it was full.

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
