Does cross-country skiing make you think of libraries? It might now! Thanks to a partnership between the National Capital Commission (NCC) and the Ottawa Public Library (OPL), ski passes are available to OPL customers. Adults and teens can borrow the NCC ski pass from the library; look for them on the express shelf!


Each pass covers access for one person to use the NCC winter trails in Gatineau Park for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and winter biking for the 2018-2019 season for one week. When you visit the Library, be sure to pick up a NCC map and pamphlet so you can explore all the terrain this season across the entire National Capital region. And of course, sign out a book or two for cozying up to with a warm hot chocolate for your après-ski.  

Happy trails!


Bonjour, sont-ils disponibles cette année? À la succursale Rideau?


Nous aurons encore cette année les laissez-passer de ski de la CCN dès l’ouverture officielle de la saison d’activité hivernale. La CCN ne nous a pas fourni de date mais nous espérons que ce sera bientôt. Les laissez-passer seront dans toutes les succursales dans la section “Express”. Bonne randonée!

Some instruction on how to book/reserve/obtain the passes would be helpful......
