This report covers the Larose Forest Trails from the P2 parking area just outside of Bourget ON. Skied the loop that connects to the south trails. Basically wet snowed in tracks with snow continuing to fall. Waxless ski conditions but I don't own any so went with violet which worked well but still had to stop to remove clumping snow a few times. As well the uneven track made for a wobbly ski. Can't complain too much at least we're getting fresh snow in mid-March!

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.
