Introducing the ultimate guide to toboganning in Ottawa and Gatineau

Last night I finally launched a little project I've been working on for a few weeks -- the ultimate guide to tobogganing Ottawa and Gatineau.

I've taken data from the City of Ottawa, Ville de Gatineau and the National Capital Commission, sprinkled in some user suggestions for "unofficial" hills, and come up with an interactive map that lists nearly 90 local hills.

I know there are more hills out there -- please send a note if there's another one we should add to the map.


  1. Great idea to provide a guide to tobogganing hills. Suggestion: could you please promote safety helmet use while tobogganing. There are more head injuries tobogganing than there are while skiing & snowboarding. If you want more info, please contact me at info@tail-wags.com.

  2. This is fantastic -- I love how you get actual useful info if you click on the pins. I even assumed you wouldn't have the smaller ones in our neighbourhood but they're here.
