Ottawa Citizen article on ski trails in the area
December 26, 2017: “Happy trails: Place where you can XC ski, right in Ottawa” by Matthew Pearson.
“Nothing beats gliding down Champlain Parkway in the crisp sunshine or hitting the trails after dark to enjoy supper by candle light in the cozy confines of Shilly Shally, one of the park’s iconic red-trimmed shacks heated by woodstove and the huffing of skate skiers.
But what if you: a) don’t have a car or b) only have a short window of time in which to squeeze in a skinny ski?
Well, you’re in luck: Thanks to dedicated volunteers, there are several places to go in Ottawa, some of which may be just beyond your backyard or accessible by public transit.”
