Lots of fresh fluffy snow made for a winter wonderland today! All trails are in good shape - we explored Haycock Mine Loop, Morall Loop, and the Nationals 7.5 km loop. All had been recently groomed with some fresh powder on top which slowed down the tracks a tad but made the downhills pretty fun.

Bright morning sun and perfect grooming make these cold days beautiful! uOttawa Nordiq stayed close to the stadium with short sprints and agility work, but the racing trails were freshly groomed and looked inviting. If you bundle up and and avoid long exposed downhills the skiing is pretty good!

Bright sun and wooded trails made for a beautiful ski this morning! We explored some of the smaller trails (Morrall Loop, Haycock Mine Trail) - more snow will smooth these out a bit but they are still loads of fun. Nakkertok is perfect for colder days - a short climb up Chute Charon warms you up, and then you are in the woods with no long downhills, and when you're done there's a warm chalet for Apres Ski!

About Skiing at Nakkertok..


Nakkertok has a network of about 75km of skating, classical and backcountry trails at two locations just north of Ottawa in the Gatineau Hills.


General Info: Driving Directions | Trail Maps | Trail Conditions | Grooming Activity Report.


Nakkertok South is the main attraction offering groomed skating and classic skiing, chalets, races and children's programming. There are lit trails for night skiing. Club membership, or a day-use fee required for skiing.


Nakkertok North trails are quite demanding, and only occasionally groomed (Fridays). They offer a refreshing backcountry wilderness experience for those with good skiing skills. The trails at Nakkertok North are almost always quiet. The annual Nakkerloppet event in February is a great opportunity to discover these trails by making the North to South crossing.
