Winter is over!

Winter trails are no longer recommended. This page will be updated for the 2022-2023 season.


Before you hit Gatineau Park winter trails, get familiar with trail etiquette.

Cross-country ski, snowshoe and snowbike trail conditions are updated regularly during the winter season. Winter hiking and walking trail conditions are updated once a week, in the section below.

Please be considerate of other users. Use only the trails designed for your activity.

Weekly Update: Trail Conditions and Grooming Operations

Last updated: April 1st, 2022

The arrival of warm weather has brought an end to our winter season. The cross-country ski trails are still accessible, but conditions are extremely inconsistent, and no starting point is officially recommended.

Once the snow has melted, the maintenance teams will start cleaning up the parkways for summer use. A special thanks goes out to Services récréatifs Demsis inc. and the volunteer patrol for their excellent work this season.
