We have had a deluge of snow over the past few days and there is more to come this week. This is a big pain for commuting, shoveling and scraping your car off but it makes for great skiing…both cross-country and downhill. Ottawa has lots to offer in this regard with our
plentiful cross country trails through the National Capital Commission lands as well as many surrounding downhill skiing slopes both near and far. Go for an afternoon, a day…or even a night ski! Check out the websites below to take advantage of the outdoors during our winter season.
