Trails Skied: #50 [14.7km], Glide Wax: , Grip Wax:
Short classic ski on Trail 50 past 55 to the cabins and back around noon today. The first 50 feet from P19 was bare, but after that it was snow-covered throughout. Snow conditions ranged from slushy to crusty to icy in spots, but overall pretty good for April. Classic tracks were shallow throughout but manageable. The conditions seemed to improve after I got past 55 - I wish I had more time as the snow coverage seemed to be deeper after that. The hill up to Renaud has a few bare spots but they looked avoidable.

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
