Lafleur once again amazes with late season grooming. They really do deserve our thanks and support!

Jo-Ann Holden has a series of pictures of Gavin and Ed from yesterday - start here. Jo-Ann is in the running for the last person in Ottawa to ski.

Here are our pictures...

P10 received only a dusting.

Top of the climb to Fortune Lake, good coverage and grooming.

Fortune Lake flat, skating was great.

Fortune Lake, evidence of classic skiers. Wayne?

Ridge looked good, but there are a few thin spots where you'll go through. ROCK SKIS!

Megan and Eva getting to Gossip corner.

Proof of grooming, but a 45 minutes later is was completly covered with new snow.

Top of Penguin. Descending not adviced.

Discussing who should ski down Penguin and let us know how it worked out.

No, not Tom's Chipmunk. This was a deer's tail. A wolf got the deer, but those pictures are too graphic for this website. Serves as a reminder that there is wildlife in the park besides us.

Ridge 1A/1B intersection at Western turn-off. Gossip North?

Good snow coverage here!

Unfinished parkway was good too.

Interesting Reading. . .
