Please check back around September 2018 for the 2019 season registration date.
The ONSC program will run from January 2018 to March (final date is weather/snow condition dependent) Saturdays at 9:30 am at the Eric Danis Clubhouse at the Hornet’s Nest (click here for a map).
Trail grooming information
Please understand that trail grooming is done by a single volunteer who is not paid for the many hours it takes to groom trails and set classic tracks. It is not usually feasible to groom every time it snows.

We endeavour to keep the trail grooming information up to date. You may also call the Snow Phone at 613-837-SNOW (7669) for a recorded message.
Greenbelt Cross Country Ski – Grooming and Track-setting
Are you generally happy with the trail grooming and track-setting done by the ONSC at Pine Grove, Mer Bleue and the Hornet’s Nest/Green’s Creek?
The National Capital Commission has entered into an agreement with the ONSC permitting the grooming and track-setting of classic XC ski trails and gives the ONSC $625 to help off-set the costs (this represents about 7% of the annual $9,000 cost of grooming and track-setting; the ONSC absorbs all other costs). The ONSC is always appreciative of this and, any support.
The City supports the agreement by clearing the parking lots used by XC skiers and others.
Both the NCC and the City need to hear about what you think of the service provided - at no cost to the user.
