Gatineau Park Cross-Country Ski Trail Reports - SkiTrails.xcOttawa.ca
Nov 26 (3d, 7h) - Karl Saidla - Starting Point: P5, Trails Skied: Gatineau Pkwy , Champlain Pkwy, Glide Wax: Star Warm NF liquid, Grip Wax: Guess: Vauhti K-Universal Gold, maybe with a touch of K-Red as it gets warmer.
Megan asked if skiing was worth it today. What kind of question is that? When is skiing not worth it? I skated from P5. It was a bit soft and awkward, but reasonably fast thanks to a touch of freezing rain overnight. for some reason the conditions were more firm and generally better on the Gatineau Parkway as opposed to the Champlain Parkway. The other thing I noticed was that the snow was significantly slower anywhere below the Mica junction. You will want klister if you go classic - something that will tolerate a bit of fresh snow.
