What is uOttawa Nordiq?

We are the uOttawa Gee-Gees Nordic Ski Team, aiming to provide students with an opportunity to ski competitively and join the region’s large and passionate ski community on some of the nation’s finest trails. Ottawa’s snowy winters and uOttawa’s proximity to ideal training grounds is hard to beat.

The Ottawa-Gatineau area is one of the best places in Canada to ski competitively and go to school. uOttawa is the World's largest English-French bilingual university, offering outstanding programs to students in English, French, or both languages, and we have a bilingual team. Veuillez nous excuser pour le manque actuel de contenu en français sur ce site. ... nous y travaillons ! La plupart de nos entraîneurs parlent français, alors n'hésitez pas à communiquer avec nous en français.

Ontario University Varsity nordic teams offer strong competition, and an impressive local competition schedule allows busy student-athletes to compete without excessive travel, time, and expense.

Beyond our training and racing, we are also committed to showcasing a popular and accessible winter sport to the community through outreach activities.
