  • Camp Fortune Ski Loop is Now Open!!
    Now that the snow has disappeared from the parkways, there is a new option for skiing in the Ottawa/Outaouais region.  The Camp Fortune Ski Loop!

    This loop has come into being as a result of the collaboration across the ski community involving six ski clubs (Chelsea, Kanata, Nakkertok, Skinouk, XC Ottawa, XC Zone) the National Capital District of CCO and Camp Fortune.  After several years of talking, this year the community took action, and voila! a ski loop created with man-made snow is born.  This initiative was conceived, led and funded entirely by the local ski community.

    For this inaugural year only season passes are available to members of Cross Country Canada registered clubs. Details about hours of operation, ski loop rules and costs can be found here on the ski loop page

  • Draft Technical Package
    A draft technical package for the NCD series has been posted  - look for it under the NCD Race Series.  Or click here to link to the page.
    All NCD race series organizers should take a look at the package.  We have made two significant changes...the race categories and the expectation that these be low fluoro events (unless affiliated with a higher level race - i.e. Easterns)

    The fees associated with the race series go towards the athlete awards and keeping our equipment maintained and up to date - it is a very small fee that helps ensure that we recognize our local athletes and have good equipment to use by all clubs in the region (both Quebec and Ontario).
