Full length of Rideau Canal Skateway is open
Skateway opened for the season on Dec. 30
The entire Rideau Canal Skateway is open as temperatures in Ottawa-Gatineau remain cold, the National Capital Commission says.
The 7.8-kilometre skateway was available as of noon Sunday, Jan. 13.
The skating season began Dec. 30.
The NCC's interactive map tracking ice conditions is updated every morning and early afternoon:
There are also webcams at three locations along the skateway if you want to sneak a peek at how it's looking.
Last season, the canal was open for 35 days between Jan. 5 and Feb. 21.
