    Mxz 7000 , I am running Simmons skis on that Freeride. Enjoy them, a good all around ski for a variety of riding conditions. Today was a mix of marginal snow cover to adequate snow cover. A good 180 mile plus ...ride. We are all getting adjusted to the 850s. Really like them. Also many of us got to try the new Polaris titan, a definite Skidoo expedition challenger. It feels like a heavier, robust, Ski Doo Freeride. On the Labrieville rd, a big “dog” track kept us wondering, ..just how big he was! Today we road towards Labrieville, tomorrow is a run towards Escoumin. Lots of darting and weaving😉

    Early Rider, Went to km 31 yesterday for an exploratory few days in search of rideable snow. Looks like he found it! Rob reported that so far conditions seen to be good, a little on the light side going south, but very adequate in the km 31 area. He put on a quick 70 miles after getting there yesterday afternoon. More explorations today towards Onatchaway. It won't be long! Think RR A crisp morning today at km31

    Lépine road(Pensive area)

    Looks like the northern part of the Outaouais region is in winter mode. Guys unloaded at the Pensive this past weekend. This pic was taken off Lépine road (Shannon Lodge area) next to Pensive. Guy said road is plowed by the loggers up to Vimont road( as usual) past Pensive relay.

    We rode back to Forestville with Johnny 24 wide today , some goat trail riding and a few bog crossings, but it is also good to report that we saw Forestville and Escoumin out and grooming. The Pelchat trail is groomed and connected to Mt Valin. So a mini saddlebag trip would be possible and enjoyable. Our trip ended today, we were very fortunate to end up with 1660 Miles on our sleds. A great start to our snowmobile season. see you on the snow soon RR

    Ice’s new ride

    That's a sweet ride, as I age I was certainly thinking of it more with the power steering and certainly some Yamaha models ride better than others, not sure if she will be part of Team Ice or not.

    The Bridge less traveled, an interesting and fun ride to Mont Villian today, the bay has no ice on it so you can not cross it yet., not much for grooming yet in the Low lands but we inprovised. Another nice day in the winterland!

    As Backcountry has reported and certainly no different than any other year, we are getting preseason riding conditions. With several hundred miles of groomed trails in the area, to streams that are not frozen, to sled breakdowns and great Backcountry woods road running. Each day gives us a new experiences. Early rider, 1500 HD, Backcountry and I are having a great time. We have had to scrounge for a reliable internet connection so patchy reporting has been the norm. 8” forecast for tomorrow here, so great powder riding we hope for the end of our trip! best regards RR

    Hi Ice, it sure does seem good back on the snow, hope a good snow crop comes soon for everyone! TB, sure wish you guys were here with us, seemed like just a bit ago we were here riding the same areas with you guys. 800 Steve, look us up when you get here, enjoy the ride the Simmons skis are Gen 3 and the the boys are all using skis that fit on existing spindles yesterday, as I had posted yesterday, we went to Escoumin via the Pelchat trail. Great going over over this way with mostly good snow cover, particularly the closer we got towards the new Escounin Relais. The club house came out awesome., we ended up with a bit over 200 miles yesterday, the trail 93 towards Sacre Coure, though not groomed, was awesome as well. More riding today, back over in that area, maybe, head towards Forestville.

    Insurance Rebate

    I question how many riders have the required $500,000 limit. I've owned an insurance agency for 34 years and most people want minimum limits, this could prove costly if you check the block verifying that you have required coverage. Personally for the 40some odd dollars I will keep the coverage that comes with the pass. Don't forget you are also buying legal defense when you buy a policy of insurance, how far does 40 bucks get you in an attorneys office?

    Big White Tour

    When saddlebagging, brining gas is a necessity in my opinion. Regardless of how much you plan your gas stops you may need it. i.e. Heavy fresh snow kills mpg, towing a breakdown (minimal mpg), wrong turn, reroute cuz of forestry etc expect the unexpected

    April 7, 2016 last truck in the corral at RDL. I use a 2003 Honda Pilot bought new currently has 143,000 miles and runs like a top. I pull a 2008 Triton 12' clamshell trailer. Now before you fall on the floor laughing I have had other members here chase me from the USA to RDL and were unable to catch me, that was a big Ford diesel. 😉 Actually have been truck shopping but having a hard time writing the check for somewhere North of $50,000 on a depreciating asset. That new Ford is quite beautiful thought.

    Hello riders. Last year we ordered new 850 renegades. Thinking like our 800's they would come with the short windshields. Me having to get ready ordered 2 Two that is new 17 inch medium windsheilds for the new rides. Well after receiving the new 17 inchers I happen to read the 2018 model comes with 17 inch medium windsheilds. Any way if someone happened to break theirs or needs one from last years model let me know and I will send it your way. I have the side deflectors for both windsheilds. We want these to go to someone in need and not to someone to sell for their personal gain. Of couse I don't want to pay the shipping. They will be free to someone in need. Be safe and enjoy the adventure.

    Love those old pics Groomer,got a few here from back in the mid 60s , one has my father sister and I. He would think nothing of going into the back country 20 or 30 miles on this machine and a sleigh solo with us, always had extra belts and spark plugs 😁. If it was a big trip, well two machines and snow shoes would do lol. enjoy RR

    It snowed most of the day yesterday, probably 6 to 8” of new snow, some sleet last night. Overall a fun day bush wacking. This is a 2 mile long worm hole that connects two roads up near the Pipmuacan reservoir. A fun tactical ride. We we had tried to get to Forestville the day before but came up short on gas and trail conditions. We are planning a repeat of that ride today, only a little different route We are generally happy with the gen 4 Freeride. But need to work on gearing for our style of riding. We are hoping for better fuel mileage and top end once we do that. Best regards RR

    Mid range I really appreciate you posting this news. As I have said before, your back yard is my favorite playground. Every year the lepine road excursions take a new twist. It's almost as if no one wants it to be. I enjoy it, almost as much as I enjoy Clova. I know this is not a popular opinion, however if you really think about it, it's hard to argue with: If you don't want to stay with Dominic at the school house, and you really miss the Tabernack that much, stay off the lepone road altogether, without his work and expenditure there would be no trail up the Lepine. In the words of another fellow QR favorite...Merci, bon soir!
