The Kanata Nordic Ski Club has been introducing children, youth and parents to the sport since 1979 through the Jackrabbit Ski Program, and also the Kanata Racers, a competitive racing program for the more athletically inclined.

Since 2006 we have been located at the Bonnenfant YMCA-YWCA Outdoor Centre at 1620 Sixth Line Road. To get there take Riddell Road, right off the Dunrobin Road, to Sixth Line Road, just 10 minutes north from Alcatel (See Google map). Enjoy nearly 5km of classic groomed ski trails through 120 acres of the Bonnenfant Y Outdoor Centre and Riverfront Park (See Trail Map: updated Jan-2008).
