Gatineau Park Cross-Country Ski Trail Reports - SkiTrails.xcOttawa.ca
Feb 14 (4d, 6h) - Craig Storey - Starting Point: P10, Trails Skied: Fortune Pkwy, #3, Glide Wax: Blue, Grip Wax: Vauhti Carrot covered with green
Warm sun, a bit of wind and lots and lots of fresh snow! Beautiful day for a ski! Parking lots were empty at 9:30 compare to usual but a lot more people out at 11:30.

Grooming was great, everything is quite wide and flat. As expected ts not firm yet, there's still lots of air in that snow, and as a result its slower than last week. This warmer weather will transform the snow and speed things up ahead of Gatineau Loppet.

Get out and enjoy, this is peak skiing for sure!
