Amazing skiing right now at Nakkertok! Everything is firm, flat, wide and fun!

Morrall loop is in great shape for skate or classic, Haycock for classic and all primaries and secondaries are groomed and ready. There were NorAM stars (Dom Moncion-Groulx) and school kids learning to ski out there this am. A great place for all to play.

What are the trails like? A wider Burma, or a twistier Ridge Road. And a warm chalet right at the parking lot. Couldn't ask for more. If you haven't skied at Nakkertok before come check it out Sunday, Feb. 11th from 1-4pm. Its free.

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.
