Gatineau Park Cross-Country Ski Trail Reports - SkiTrails.xcOttawa.ca
Jan 16 (2d, 1h) - Karl Saidla - Starting Point: P7, Trails Skied: North Loop, #30, Camp Fortune Race Course, Glide Wax: Rode GLF Orange, Grip Wax: Guess: Rode VXPS or Rode Violet hard wax
We skied from P7 and did a short workout on the racing loop at Camp Fortune. Ridge is firm with a skiff of new snow on top that made some skating skis really slow. The race course is generally in good shape. If I was being fussy I would say it still has some soft/uneven spots and isn't quite wide enough to have a classic track that doesn't get damaged by skating - but we'll get there.
