Gatineau Park Cross-Country Ski Trail Reports - SkiTrails.xcOttawa.ca
Jan 17 (3d, 3h) - Karl Saidla - Starting Point: P8, Trails Skied: Fortune Pkwy, Champlain Pkwy, North Loop, #1, Glide Wax: Rode Blue, Grip Wax: Rode Black Base, Rode Super Blue, Rode Multigrade Violet
A particularly beautiful day to be out with a bit of sun and some light snow coming down. The parkways were in great shape and Ridge Road was also good. There is a hard/abrasive base with some powder on top. For classic I would certainly recommend binder or even a klister base.
