Gatineau Nordique Sport Newsletter + COVID19 Restrictions, January 2021

Both the Ontario and Quebec provincial governments are telling their citizens that people are expected to stay home and not travel to other jurisdictions.   From my vantage point, I completely agree.

Due to the fact that I repair cross country skis, I am allowed to remain open.  I serve one customer at a time, and sometimes I serve this person outside.  I am comfortable with what I am doing.

Courtesy of Rebecca Boss I now have an e-commerce portal for waxes, those being Montana Win the Race liquid, and the STAR liquid waxes.  Shipping to destinations within Canada is via Canada Post, with orders of $65 and over incurring no shipping charges.  For orders less than $65 there is a flat rate shipping charge of $8.00.

For the last few months I have not travelled to Ottawa.  Michael Bennett, the owner of Euro-sports in Ottawa, drops off and picks up skis at my shop, Gatineau Nordic Sport, in Wakefield once a week.  Since he lives in Quebec and works in Ottawa, he can continue to come here once a week. For people who live in Ontario, if you decide to drop off skis at Euro-sports to be delivered to me, write your name, telephone number and GNS on the skis.  Knock on the front door of the Euro-sports store and give them your skis.  Shortly thereafter, email me at  indicating that you have dropped off your skis to the Euro-sports store.   GNS customers and I will communicate via emails.

I have a very good supply of waxable classic skis that can used as waxable skis or be converted to skin skins. I have poles, classic boots and NNN bindings.  If you are not able to come to my store (GNS), send me an email stating your interests. I do not need you here to select and test skis for you.  If needed, I can ship the skis you purchase from my shop directly to you, or arrange for your skis to be delivered for you to Euro-sports in Ottawa.  As always, I guarantee the fit of skis that I sell you.

In keeping with what the medical professionals are asking us to do, at this point in time for customers from Ontario, I would very much like to invite you to approach me online via my website.

Ski safely.  Hoping to be able to serve you in the near future.
