This report covers the Larose Forest ski trails from the P1 parking lot on Indian Creek road. Fresh grooming on the trails running from P1 to P2 on the Bourget side. Grooming had not been done on the south trails as of yesterday. Conditions this morning were fabulous despite a few cms of fresh snow that slowed me a bit but once more skiers got out and packed the tracks down I was able to pick up speed. Highly recommended!

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.
