On Monday I skied at Gatineau Park. Conditions on groomed trails were good: not a lot of powder, but nice and fast. On the ungroomed/skier-groomed/backcountry-lite trails, there were some spots (especially at stream crossings) where you had to be very careful. And there were some trails where there wasn't enough snow to even try. But, with the huge trail network, there was plenty of trails to choose from.
They could use a couple of inches of snow, which they probably got on Tuesday, judging from what I had to drive through, on my trip back to Vermont.
This was my first time skiing at Gatineau Park, and I was very impressed. As I said, the trail network is huge: I think it's probably bigger than Mt-Ste-Anne, which I suspect of putting multiple trail numbers on the same piece of trail to claim the largest trail network in Canada. Aside from size, I liked the terrain in Gatineau (more, smaller, hills) and the variety of trails (superhighways, roads, and New-England-sized trails). Lots of shelters and toilets, too.
