    VT Couples Tour

    The 900Ts are supposed to be quite the ride. I haven't tried one but from what I have heard they are "quick". I don't remember the last time the belt was changed on my 850. We have over 3,000 miles this season and I know it hasn't been changed this year. I don't even remember it being changed last year. Give us a report on the 900T. Jack & Sandi

    Trail Info - 3 & 93

    I just finished a trip and took 3 from QC to the river. I would stay away from it. It was this past Wednesday and was incredibly busy and rough. 93 was incredible as usual.

    Thank you was unaware that restaurant closed. That would put KM 31 as the logical choice.

    Hey Jack & Sandi! We had a great ride with 3 couples who all rode well together, lots of fun. I was a little disappointed with my 850's oil consumption, as well as smoking a belt at just over 800 miles. So...when I just went to retrieve at dealer after it's first service, we took care of the oil consumption issue! A new 900T will be coming to Quebec this weekend! Terry

    Quebec Pass for Sled Trade??

    hi terry !!! this should help you !!! bring papers of your ''old sticker '' with you !!! jean-guy Replacement permits Replacement permits may be purchased for thirty dollars ($30), ideally at the club the original permit was purchased from. In order to receive a replacement permit, the receipt and sticker of the trail permit issued for the original snowmobile must be presented to the seller. Please note that a trail permit cannot be transferred to another owner. It can only be transferred from one snowmobile to another belonging to the same owner (for example, in the case of a sale followed by a purchase).
  9. Hey All- I know I have seen this topic before, but cannot seem to locate the answer! I just traded my sled, how do I go about transferring my trail pass? Time is of the essence because I'm headed back up Sunday morning! Any and all help is much appreciated.... Thanks- Terry

    KEEP MONT VILAIN IN MIND. GOOD FOOD, GAS AND GREAT TRAILS TO AND FROM( CAN GIVE YOU POTENTIAL TO BUY A PASS FOR A DAY IN THE ZEC, IF YOU LIKE FLAT TRAILS) GETS YOU OUT OF THE CRAZINESS WITHOUT ACTUALLY BEING TO FAR OUT.

    Start of another saddlebagger

    I have seen that before in the same area, Manawan is like the wild West , just a normal thing for neighborhood dogs to run free, and not be fed and cared for like we do here at home, it truly is a different world and thought process there.

    We were just up there last week. The restaurant that was up the road from gas has closed. The ski area had food. They opened up a yurt restaurant with good food but it is down the trail a short distance.

    Snow conditions

    Playhard, Phil1 Last week the weather looked ideal for the Baie Comeau -Sept iles run. Not so much now with the snow and wind predicted. I think we will head up to Mont Valin area first for couple days, hope by mid week it settles down so we can hopefully still get out to Sept iles.

    Temiscaming - Grooming

    Sounds like bad news to me.... Temiscaming club has an active FB account.. ping them. I would be avoiding it... long trail if rough... beauty when groomed. Take the 386 to La Verendrye Pavilion instead.. or on to Trout Lk if V is full. Depends on your full weekend plan???

    Hi Terry & Molly, We love reading along with you. The trails this year have stood up very well after a grooming because of the low temps. I think this has been one of the best seasons for trail conditions. Jack & Sandi

    Ferry Conquered and back to Shawinigan

    The Godbout portion of trail 3 everyone should experience at least once. I give the groomer compliments to get thru it. You wouldn't send a new guy there. Thanks for the pics and enjoy your ride. Jack & Sandi

    Redscreen Riders - Luxury Tour Edition

    Late start because Village Windigo doesn’t serve breakfast until 8am, no big deal we were rolling by 9:30. Fresh 15cm of fluff with hard pack underneath made for very comfortable riding the entire day. We took 319 to 53 and then back tracked to local trail 233 north(not by choice, and that’s why you always carry extra gas), lots of logging activity this year all the way up to the 13, they groomed a trail on the shoulder following the logging road but it was very tough to find our rhythm on tight trails with trucks flying by every 5 minutes and rental groups from Meekos NOT STAYING TO THE RIGHT. Made it to Cheval by 11:30 with a group of 14 sleds waiting for gas in front of us, they were from California and New Zealand and were nice enough to let us jump ahead in line and gas up right away. They also helped Roger get his Sidewinder unstuck after he was pulled into the soft shoulder waiting in line(see photo below LOL). From this point the trails were perfect. Parent to Weymontachie makes my top 10 favourite runs, very easy to find your rhythm; quick gas up and on to Windigo. We rolled in at 5:30 and the place was empty, not for long Stephanie, Daniel and Martin told us a group of 13 Americans doing the ‘Big Boar Tour’ were on the way. We had a great dinner, as usual, a drink or 2 ; ) and had some laughs. Martin gave the tour leader a track map using the lake to save them 70km, I wished them good luck and happy trails at breakfast. I couldn’t imagine trying to ride with a group of 13, CRAZY! Today’s distination Lac Taureau and I finally get to run the M20 trail, and looky looky the groomers were busy last night freshly groomed for us. Stay tuned, Carm and Roger

    Ferry Conquered and back to Shawinigan

    Glad you made it snowmaster we had changed our starting point, because of the ferry cancellations. We are in Mutane right now ,they changed the schedule and it would have not worked for us on the return trip. Have a great ride Zrtkat

    Fabulous day attending day 1 of the Grand Prix Ski-Doo de Valcourt

    Scarsdale, we didn't go as it wasn't in the plans but it is in my bucket. Returning from the Gaspesie during the summer on our bikes we did attempt to visit the BRP factory but as we neared Valcourt we encountered a team paving the road. The paving team had recently sprayed "tac coat" (liquid adhesive tar applied to the roadbed before resurfacing with blacktop) and the flag men motioned for the waiting traffic to travel over the tac coat. No thanks..needless to say we pulled a U-turn and returned to camp. Hope to get back that way this summer. As for the winter races I will definitely return. Had a great day. Great energy / excitement. Do you still drive the hummer? I'm always looking for your plate "PLAYHRD" on the parkways. Haven't come across it yet. I trust you are enjoying your winter. Stay safe...

    This unit at Passion is not a cabin but it is right next door to the restaurant bar no riding to eat or drink.

    New advertiser Hotel Matagami

    1 look at those pics says east side. The west side is a wide cruiser under the power lines, leads into Amos. As viper said, the east side leads into LSQ. Either way we can all agree that Matagami is an experience we enjoyed with the help of hotel Matagami. My wife enjoyed the hot tub in the room. If you really want to get crazy, just head north like Bill and crew did years ago, you can stop into James Bay for lunch....2 days later...lol

    Drummondville

    Returned from RDL yesterday -Thursday the 21st by means of the black trail. Parallel & or intersecting trails on Routes 20, 55 & 410 were all groomed & looking appetizing. In comparison to two weeks ago where the intersecting trails on 410 & 55 were bare or under water. Happy trails....

    Groomer didn’t disappoint.. awesome trails

    Good morning Joe. Eddy O & Liam did not travel with us on this journey. Eddy O did come with us a few weeks back to Caribou. Liam is a freshman attending Binghamton University & during school break he chose to stay behind & visit with the girlfriend despite speaking all year of the anticipated annual trip. Needless to say Liam lost a few favorable points with me....First year of college and he is ruined. Ha ha On Monday we left RDL, Tuesday Matane, Wednesday Maria outside of New Richmond, Thursday Rimouski & back to RDL in 2.5 hours arriving @ 1130. A quick change, load trailer, and stock up on Cadbury chocolate @ the neighboring fuel stop & on the black trail @ 1pm arriving in Pittsburg at 7pm with 2' + - of new snow to shovel to get in the door. Referring to supporting QR where do we stand with the QR referral cards written in French where the card states in sum & substance we are eating / sleeping here because the business was referred too on QR? The entry level receptionists / hostesses we mentioned QR too were unaware of the QR website. The idea of providing the card written in French with contact information for advertising on QR is optimal. For purposes of supporting this site I regret I didn't have any cards to offer. Attached are a handful of photos depicting the fantastic trail conditions & weather we encountered.
