This report coves the Larose Forest Trails from P2 on Hwy 8 south of Bourget ON. Same ski route as my report last week, south trails/Perron loop. Classic tracks were icey trenches that grabbed at my boot for the first part through the trees towards Boundary road. Conditions improved after that as the snowed softened in the sun. There\'s a few spots where the ground is coming through. Likely won\'t see any more grooming this season from the Township. Probably best to go closer to noon when the snow is softening. Not too many good days left, rain is supposed to start Wednesday and into the weekend...

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.
