This is something I haven’t seen before: skate-in back country winter camping. Brilliant!
Sadly these guys are in Nova Scotia – you’ll have to find your own frozen lake and campsites if you want to give this a go around Ottawa (and if you do – please report back!).
This makes incredible sense, considering you’re generally lugging in 50 or 100 pounds of gear… and what better way than on skate blades?! got to lug in 50 pounds of tent and gear with you
I also have great camping friends who don’t cross country, but they do skate! Maybe I’ll start looking around for something skate-able, besides Pig Island on the Canal that is!
