About this web site

This web site is a private non-commercial initiative by Michael McGoldrick. It is not affiliated with the NCC, the Gatineau Park, or any business or group involved with the Gatineau Park or servicing the cross-country community in the Ottawa Gatineau area.

It's about cross-country skiing in and around the Ottawa-Gatineau area, with an emphasis on the Gatineau Park. It is primarily aimed at people who are relatively new to cross-country skiing, although some aspect of this web site may prove useful to more experienced skiers.

No money is being spent to promote this website, so if you think it would be of interest to others, please spread the word.

Note that the "Ottawa River Sailing Page" has been in continuous operation since 1995, and it is one of the oldest web sites about sailing in Canada, and one of the first regional web sites about sailing on the WWW.

All web sites by Michael McGoldrick are 100% non-commercial.
