Gatineau Park Cross-Country Ski Trail Reports - SkiTrails.xcOttawa.ca
Today (4h, 38m) - Craig Storey - Starting Point: P10, Trails Skied: Fortune Pkwy, Glide Wax: , Grip Wax: VR60
Report from Mike Cooper - Skied P10 Fortune Parkway this morning 7:30-9:00. Classic, VR60 wax (should have used VR65). Excellent uniform heavy snow coverage (10-15 cm). It is fine for skate or classic skiing. The snow turns very wet right at the asphalt surface so it is often best to make your own tracks rather than following older tracks.
