Gatineau Park Cross-Country Ski Trail Reports - SkiTrails.xcOttawa.ca
Apr 17 (6d, 11h) - Karl Saidla - Starting Point: P10, Trails Skied: Fortune Pkwy, Champlain Pkwy, Champlain Pkwy, Glide Wax: Not required!, Grip Wax: Vauhti Universal Klister
Megan and I went out for an early evening ski from P10. We encountered quite a few people with big smiles on their faces. And why not? The snow is granular, sugary, and fast. We skied from P10 to the Fortune junction without having to take our skis off (there was one very thin spot near Fortune Lake) and then to Huron, where the snow ran out. We also went the other way about as far as the top of Black Lake, where it is also thin. Most of the parkways in the area were still completely covered. If you want the title of last person to post a trail report, it is there for the taking, and actually, quite worth the trip up to the park.
