Great spring skiing at Kanata Nordic this evening. I only managed to get a short ski (skate) in on the lower trails, but heard that the upper trails are in similar condition. Last groomed on March 16th, but tracks and trails are still holding up well and should for the next few days at least. Tracks are deep and in good shape while the skate lane is hard-packed and only interrupted by the occasional deer track or dead bumblebee (On 104 there were several dead bumblebees or wasps littering the trail. Not sure that they helped with the glide..). There are some bare and icy spots, but they are obvious and easy to avoid. Some sections were a bit softer, likely from the afternoon sun. Makes me think that as the temperature climbs, the conditions will be fantastic.

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.
