Trails Skied: Gatineau Pkwy, Champlain Pkwy, MacKenzie-King Rd , #27, #7, #15 (blue), #15 (black), #26, #29 (shared), #35 [35.2km], Glide Wax: , Grip Wax: VR40
Another beautiful ski day. We skied the upper two thirds of the 27K classic loppet, leaving out the lower section. Snow was quite fast today, and conditions were enjoyable. The grooming (especially compared to yesterday's ski at Nakkertok! ) was stale and the tracks fairly worn and shallow. Luckily the good snow coverage made up for this. A lovely ski!

Gatineau Park is ski paradise! The network of ski trails offer machine groomed skate skiing and classic skiing as well as little groomed backcountry trails. Multiple access points allow skiers to access a variety of terrain and scenery. The NCC offers season or daily pay rates.

The NCC also maintains a grooming report on-line. If you encounter people walking on groomed trails, you are best advised to contact the NCC. They are responsible for the enforcement on this so report those trail wreckers whenever you see them by calling 819-827-2020 (Visitor Centre), or email info@ncc-ccn.ca.
