Welcome to the Nakkertrak 2021!

The Nakkertrak, Nakkertok’s artificial snow loop, is located at Nakkertok South – 900 Avenue Gatineau, Gatineau, QC. Click here to view the Google maps location.

Nakkertok is privileged to have artificial snow-making equipment to allow for extended season skiing. Depending on weather conditions portions of the ski loop will be open in late November and ideally be open until April 1st. We are excited that we are entering season 6 of operations.
