Gatineau Park Cross-Country Ski Trail Reports - SkiTrails.xcOttawa.ca
Dec 18 (12h, 2m) - Sheila Kealey - Starting Point: P10, Trails Skied: Fortune Pkwy, Champlain Pkwy, #1 (green) (#2 - #24), Glide Wax: , Grip Wax:
No fresh grooming but nice conditions from p10 this morning. As we climbed, we encountered better conditions and fewer leaves in the classic tracks. Ridge road to Huron - 1A was good, and conditions improved towards trail 24 (with fresh carpet grooming in the skate track). Many were out enjoying the Park (P10 was full at 10 AM). A little snow would help but conditions are still quite good! Our crew had a mix of klister binder (or aggressive hard-wax binder) covered with hard wax and grip was good!
