Beautiful grooming and skiing this morning! The stadium and primaries are full width, perfectly level and simply groomed to perfection. Congratulations to trails crew and shovellers for all the hard work to repair the thaw damage from last week.

We skied classic, up 8 to Weber Pond, out #1 around Haycock and Morrall, back down #4, a few spins around the new Alcove trail and Jackrabbit. Haycock and Morrall are in good shape with good classic tracks and not too firm a base.

The road in is repaired nicely too. No excuse not to ski Nakkertok today. If you haven't tried it yet you'll be amazed.

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.
