Trails Skied: 10 [4km], Glide Wax: would sure help, Grip Wax:
It's a 5-flake day out there in the western greenbelt! No pedestrian traffic yet on #10, nice skier-made tracks, no icy patches any more. I'm too lazy to wax though so my skis were sticking in places in the warming temperatures, although my husband (also waxless) had no trouble. I'd recommend waxing, and conditions today are nice enough to make it worth it.

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.
