Nakkertrak and primaries are mainly in good condition still. Skating is better than classic as tracks really glazed over in a lot of places. The base is firm and was tilled nicely.

Snow cover is getting thin in some spots up high, and secondaries are starting to look poor with thin coverage, ice and dirt popping through. Weber pond is almost a skating rink (with ruts).

We're going to need some snow soon, real or man made! Lets hope we get the snow and skip the rain this time.

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.
