Trails Skied: 7, 10, 11, 12, 13, 15 [0km], Glide Wax: Swix universal warm, Grip Wax: Skin skis
Groomer has been out. Classic skis today, no groomed classic trail. Grip and glide were very good. No real bare patches to report. Would have been better off on skate skis today. I'd recommend going on SJAM, nice skiing today

About Skiing the SJAM Winter Trail..




A groomed multi-use winter trail along the Sir John A. Macdonald (SJAM) multi-use pathway (MUP) will promote active living and provide access to the Ottawa River shoreline, welcoming a diversity of users, whether they are walking, on skis, snowshoes or a snow bike. The salt-free trail will respect environmental sensitivities unique to the river shoreline.

The trail will connect the Canadian War Museum with park lands along the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway to Westboro Beach, animating spaces that until now have been little used in the winter. Transit stations border the trail at LeBreton Flats, Bayview/O-train and Dominion Stations, with parking at Westboro Beach, Champlain Park and the Canadian War Museum, providing ready access for visitors from around the National Capital Region.

Two tracks will be set, one for snowshoers, walkers and bikers and the other for cross-country skiers, supporting both classic and skate style techniques. The walking track will follow the existing pathway. Serpentine loops will add distance to the ski track at the Selby Plains and Remic Rapids greenspaces and at open lands adjacent to the War Museum and Champlain Bridge, for an expected distance of 16 kilometres. more..
