Trails Skied: Gatineau Pkwy, #5 (green), #27, #15 (blue), #29 (alternative), #29 (shared), #35, Pink Lake Access [26km], Glide Wax: universal, Grip Wax: Blue and Polar as a Binder..
Fast classic conditions with a hard base and basically yesterday's grooming. The tracks still have a good dry powder base but is starting to glaze in spots. A lot of the loose snow is starting to get scrapped off on some of the descents. Fair bit of leaves in the tracks on 15 and 35 from Pink back to the 5, so beware on the quick descents. FYI, the free parking adjacent to the stadium at P2 was blocked off this morning. Found out the pay parking machine at the Relais Centre only takes coins, no paper bills or credit...

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.

For suggestions on where to ski, excellent trail descriptions, photos and maps checkout Michael McGoldrick`s website about recreational xc-skiing in Canada`s National Capital Region (with an emphasis on the Gatineau Park).

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
