Gatineau Park Cross-Country Ski Trail Reports - SkiTrails.xcOttawa.ca
Mar 21 (2d, 3h) - Karl Saidla - Starting Point: P2, Trails Skied: Gatineau Pkwy, #5 (green), #15 (blue), #29 (alternative), #29 (shared), Glide Wax: Rode Blue, Grip Wax: Rode Black Base mixed with Super Blue, Rode Super Blue
Fantastic conditions on the 15, the 5, the 29, and Gatineau Parkway. Classic tracks are hard but not icy, and the skate lanes are firm and fast. Everything we skied appeared to have been groomed overnight. There are a couple of thin/bare patches in exposed parts of the 15 but they are generally well marked.
