Gatineau Park Cross-Country Ski Trail Reports - SkiTrails.xcOttawa.ca
Today (10h, 13m) - Sheila Kealey - Starting Point: P5, Trails Skied: #1 Penguin Climb, #1, #1B, Glide Wax: , Grip Wax: Rode Blue Multigrade
Excellent skiing this morning! I headed for the woods to get out of the wind, and Ridge road was freshly groomed and tracks were in great shape (Parkways at P5 not groomed). Don't let the cold discourage you, dress in layers (because you will get warm) and start where you can get into the trails quickly. P5 and P7 are good options.
