Winter enthusiasts can get in on pre-season deals by buying their Gatineau Park cross-country ski season passes by Dec. 15.


Gatineau Park, which boasts one of North America’s most extensive and popular trail networks for cross-country skiing, features over 200 kilometres of groomed ski trails through scenic forests and along frozen lakes and river valleys.


If you’re not into skiing, the park also features opportunities for winter camping, snowshoeing, and hiking.


The public has until Sunday to get their names in for the allocation of winter reservations for one of Gatineau Park’s seven cabins and yurts. The deadline is 5 p.m.
