Short run from P19 via #50=> #55=>to Taylor lake and back same way. Felt more like a weekday today very few skiers in that area only 10 cars at P19 and about a handful at P17. Unlike what the website reported, conditions were slow a bit slushy but NOT icy. There were still decent classic tracks, but the skating lane was very sluggish not packed down.
As you can see in the first pic there is still lots of snow, as it is up to the guard rail. So plenty more good skiing to be had. Conditions should harden up after tomorrow night's low of -10 C, and make for a good ski day on monday.
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).
