A lot of Nakkertok South is skiable at the moment. The Nakkertrak has 1.1km of perfect conditions for skate or classic. A short loop for now, but the trails team is almost ready finished all the expansion work so it should be stretched to full length soon.

If you are looking for more distance, then put on your rock skis and explore the rest of the system - just be careful of the work going on. Quite a few trails have been rolled with the snowmachine and conditions are similar to Ridge Road and Burma in Gatineau park; fun, skiable but need more snow for good skis or perfect grooming. Horseman's pass and Waterfall are skiable...and a nice place to take the kids.

The Nakkertrak opened Season 3 on Monday and has had several passes with the Pisten Bully. We presently have 1/2k open with the Powerline hill to Jackrabbit corner, open for up and downhill skiing. The bumps are also good! Public access should open Friday, check Nakkertok.ca for updates. We expect to have more trail open, due to the cool weather.

We are the host site for the 2019 Ski Championships in March, and are expanding the Nakkertrak to approximately 2.5 km with funding from that event. Construction is underway this week, but the trak is still open. We will have a 2 hour Family Ski time on weekend days this year. Day users are welcome.

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.
