Gatineau Park Ski Outing

This is to invite everyone to participate in an OES ski outing on Sunday, March 12. We will be meeting at 10:30 a.m. at Parking Lot 19 (P19), at the north end of Lac Phillippe. To get there, take Highway 5 north, exiting onto Highway 366 (west, towards Masham) and then turn left into Gatineau Park–you’ll be required to pay a small trail fee.
 
We’ll be skiing along trail 50 for about 4 kilometres and then taking trail 55 to Renaud Cabin; for those who wish to ski farther, we’ll make arrangements at P19. These trails are scenic and beautiful, and easy to ski. Bring your lunch and drinks and maybe something extra to share–we’ll all be at Renaud Cabin by 12:00 noon.
 
Please register (e-mail: onu.tonu@gmail.com or phone 613 234 8022) if you are coming. Look forward to seeing everyone!
