This report covers the Larose Forest trails from the Bourget side of the park at P2. All XC trails have been groomed since last week's rain and subsequent snow fall. The east/ west trail for classic with sections for skate and the north / south trails for skate with a single classic track are all done. There's some icey and dirty sections here and there but nothing too serious. The skiing was fast and effortless, highly recommended! Condition reports can be had by checking Foret Larose Forest on Facebook.

About Skiing in the Green Belt..


The National Capital Greenbelt has over 100km of trails and another 25km of recreational pathways, most of which are suitable for cross-country skiing in the wintertime. All of the trails are suitable for beginner and family outings.


Thanks to the Nakkertok Nordic Ski Club, Orleans Nordic Ski Club and Kanata Nordic Ski Club for their volunteer grooming of various Green Belt trails from time to time. The city of Ottawa and the NCC would like to encourage urban skiing, so if you appreciate the grooming let your councilor, the city and the NCC know!


ONSC grooms The Hornet's Nest (Tauvette street to Montreal Rd), Mer Bleue and Pine Grove Forest (the section off Leitrum Rd). Trails are classic skiing ONLY, no skating is allowed on these trails. The Hornet's Nest is groomed at least weekly and the others as time permits. Updated trail conditions are available at the snow phone; 613-837-SNOW.
