Jan 11 (8M, 2w) by Karl Saidla from P7
Trails Skied: Fortune Pkwy, #1, #30, #3 [16.9km], Glide Wax: Rode Yellow, Grip Wax: Rode Multigrade Universal Klister
We skied from P7 out Ridge Road to Burma, down Burma to the Fortune Parkway and then home. While slow (with occasional slick and slightly icy patches) conditions were still quite good overall. It is very slow on Burma but at least relatively smooth and firm on the parkways and Ridge Road. If you are going classic skiing, don't ignore reality - hard wax is not going to work.

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
