Trails Skied: 1, 2, 2, 6, 8, 12 [5.97km], Glide Wax: , Grip Wax: Swix Red Grip 0-3
Conditions have deteriorated, but are still pretty good considering the challenging weather. Fresh grooming on most trails, but because of the thaw/freeze yesterday the surface is gravelly, but glide is good. A bit icy in some spots already at 10 am. Vegetation and debris poking through in some spots, particularly on trail 8, and especially at the southern part of that trail where it goes into the open area under the hydro towers. If you were looking for a trail to skip, skip 8, but it's also not horrible if you are looking to include it for a longer route. No human foot traffic yet, saw a couple of deer but not much hoof traffic damage to the trails, although the guy in the photo below was working on it!

About Skiing in the Kanata Area..

Kanata Nordic ski club is a volunteer-run club dedicated to promoting lifelong activity, fitness and enjoyment of the outdoors through a variety of cross-country ski programs and activities offered in a friendly club setting. Established in 1979, Kanata Nordic now calls Wesley Clover Parks home with a growing trail-network for all skiers to enjoy. The club is a member of Cross Country Ontario (CCO) and Cross Country Canada (CCC).

The club grooms and maintains approx. 18km of trails at 401 Corkstown Road.

Trails are groomed 3 times per week by volunteer groomers. Tracksetting occurs after each significant snowfall and just prior to Saturday lessons (usually January through March). Trail conditions will vary depending on snowfall and snow conditions.

Trails at the YMCA Bonnenfant Outdoor Centre are NOT MAINTAINED.

A day pass for skiing is $7.00 ($5.00 for snowshoeing) payable at the trailhead or online. Members receive a season trail pass as part of their club membership.
