Gatineau Park is a very popular place to do Nordic (Cross-Country) skiing. There are many groomed trails, and the Gatineau Loppet (ski race) is the largest of it's kind in North America. In 2012, it attracted over 2000 skiers from 22 different countries. One of this year's racers was the Prime Minister of Estonia.
