    Let’s welcome QR’s newest advertiser, the Hotel Universel in Rivière du Loup. For anyone who wants to tour the Gaspe, this is the perfect starting point since it’s easily accessible by truck off of highway 20, with secure parking and all of the amenities of a large city and hotel. The city and hotel are easily accessible by many different snowmobile trails and all of the major sled dealers are nearby. The amenities are too long to list, but include secure parking, two restaurants, indoor pool and spa, WiFi, and great television. The hotel has over 200 rooms, but you should still make reservations, especially on weekends and holidays. On your visit to the Universel, don’t be surprised to run into fellow Quebecrider members, and feel free to chat about your trip in the forums.

    I was at the Toronto Snowmobile show and got pulled over by Bill! He is looking good, and was very happy! He looks ready for Canada.

    Bought my trail pass from Bill this week. @ $250 US. Took 4 days, mailbox to mailbox. Ive purchased from Quebec before, and sometimes waited over a month! Not totally sure why hes not on here of late, and I didnt ask him why. Its a shame as he always offers real on the ground info. for serious trail riders. I do know that for US riders hes been the absolute Go-To when it comes to riding , lodging, dealers, towing, relais, anywhere in the LSJ-Saguenney area.

    If you want a good shot of the rock, from Table a Roland ride up the road to the road leading to the SQ station, ride up that road park st the end and walk up the hill, beautiful spot for some photography, highly recommend to get up early for the sunrise.

    2018-2019 Shawinigan Snow Reports

    10 November we have had a few small dustings of snow before last night. For me last night counts as the first real storm. It’s plus 3c now but overnight snowed heavy wet snow almost 4”. Trees all bent over heavy frosting on all the trees. My driveway guy did the driveway for the first time this season and the municipality passed by with the Grader this morning so it surely qualifies as storm #1. Will it be a start to a base? Next week we shall see. Still early yet but who knows.

    An update on the gift my wife got me at the end of summer that would compete with all the toys my QR friends have and that would attract the ladies: So far I have seen great speeds, turns on a dime, not EPA compliant, must have an aftermarket pipe as the bark is pretty loud, and teeth that can saw thru a downed tree across the trail. And how the ladies love it. And no, the picture shown is not my grand daughter, but just another trophy from the dog park! But most of all, a new best friend!

    Article on Trail Prep

    https://www.journaldequebec.com/2018/10/31/la-construction-du-reseau-de-sentiers-est-commencee PHOTO COURTESY B-PWR will present at the Quebec show this weekend for the first time its Typhoon. The vehicle of this Quebec company adapts to the needs of hunters, fishermen, rescuers and explorers, among others. It has been adapted to allow its use in any season, with a small footprint on the environment. Before you can ride on well-groomed trails that will allow you to fully enjoy your leisure, there are several operations that are done by the volunteers of the clubs. Annually, to rebuild the network, they must begin work well before the snow arrives. First, throughout the summer season, volunteers are upgrading the infrastructure, in line with the amounts received to improve the bridges and other structures, in addition to clearing the trails. They also pose signs that are more and more permanent, as far as possible. For this reason, often when you drive in the forest in certain areas in summer, you can see the snowmobile signs used during the winter. The other important work that needs to be done during the off-season is meetings with landowners to negotiate and sign rights of way agreements. Much of the trail system, almost 35%, is on private land. We must therefore obtain the permissions and respect the demands of the owners. Without their essential collaboration, we would not be able to travel all of Quebec in the winter via the network of interconnected trails between the regions. REGIONAL MEETINGS Once the club delegates participated in the conference, which took place last September in Chicoutimi, the clubs participate in regional meetings. They are intended to allow the leaders of the Federation of snowmobile clubs to present to its members the major orientations that will be put forward for the next season. The Federation is represented by the regional administrator who will be assisted by his liaison officer. These are essential for connecting the clubs and leaders of the Federation. The agents are at these meetings to present the clubs with their action plan for the coming season. These meetings are truly essential for volunteers. They also attract many club representatives who come for information. They are also an opportunity to share and discuss good practices to put in place, to start the season off right. TO PREPARE THE EXPECTED START The first snowfall that has been received in the mountains recently has certainly whetted the appetite of many snowmobilers who dream of making their first outing. However, before a trail is passable, there are certain rules to follow that do not change. Before the onset of snow, it is imperative that the ground is well frozen to allow the start of work. The second condition is to have a good amount of snow so that the volunteers can trace the trails with the surfacers, but without the guitar. This makes it possible to firmly compact the snow on the frozen ground. Subsequently, before officially opening a trail, a club will overlay its trails several times, to remove the traps that can hide the snow, such as rocks or branches. It is therefore very important, before you go on the trail, to wait until your club gives the signal for the start of the season. We must not forget that the white snow in front of us may seem harmless, but think again, it knows very well hide the dangers that can cause accidents and major breakage. QUAD SHOW AND SNOWMOBILE The 2018 edition of the Grand Salon de la motoneige and the Quebec Quad will take place at the ExpoCité Fair Center in Quebec City this weekend. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, fans are invited to meet with manufacturers of snowmobiles and quads from across the industry. You will also find on the spot many kiosks of complementary equipments for the practice of your activities, offers of destinations, without forgetting the possibility to buy many products on the spot. Also, at the dealer's request, more than 150 used vehicles will be on sale on site. The $ 15 entrance fee entitles you to a bracelet that allows access to the event during the three days. For more information: (819) 233-3330.

    It is no secret that I love the Universel Hotel and stay there several weeks each winter. It is a great place to to meet up with old and new QuebecRider friends, and enjoy a drink or some food together. Thanks to CKF and Scorpionbowl for all they did to get the Universel on board. Hope to see all of you there this winter. And a big welcome to the very wonderful staff at the Universel. mike

    The North Shore certainly is a place to explore, my last visit was back in '99 until 2 seasons ago when I went up to Forestville a couple times to ride some QR guys from here then last season I rode the North Shore on two occasions. Really hard to decide between the Gaspe and the North shore they both have unique features. From my experiences trail 3 up to Sept Isles is a good run, almost anybody can manage when groomed, beautiful scenery, look outs, gorges to nice Relaiss. Beyond Sept Isles is just as beautiful but untamed, more of a touch'n go situation and would require a skilled group to continue on. I've experienced it both ways and believe me if you're not prepared you're going no where. Trail 3 ends in Baie Johan Beetz about 100 klms after Havre St.Pierre which is another touch'n go trail, could be groomed could not be, better have some gps tracks. Beyond Baie Johan Beetz theres no more grooming and it's game on (GPS a must have) until La Route Route Blanche begins in Kegaska where the trail is maintained, groomed (to some degree) and well marked right up to Blanc Sablon but the area is as barren and rural as ever. From Kegaska is where the hwy 138 ends and here on in you're very much on your own, you'll be needing back up plans and to be prepared to stay a night in the bush for a rescue should it come to that. Remember the guys that wrote the article did a U turn in Sept Isles. If you're able I would suggest to continue on past Sept Isles up the coast for an adventurous trip you'll remember for the rest of your life.

    That looks like the bar restaurant on the north side of Lac Bouchette. Amazing how places look the same when you only see them ever couple years. Reason I remember we were in there and there was a group in there , mostly women and good looking women and they were enjoying their self's a lot. There was seven of us and a few of the boys didn't want to leave. Turned into a long day. Next day there was only three of us. The other four were not a good influence on us. We went north they went south. LOL.

    I've tried putting together the various ideas. I'm not sure of the sizing for the qr code, maybe someone else knows. I've shown the saquenay club ad on the card but we don't have that finalized. Any other thoughts or comments? Once we finalize something, we can get a french version made up also, or maybe French on one side English on the other, but that sounds expensive. In the US we can get 500 standard cards for $10, unless someone knows of other deals...

    Carleton/Nouvelle Orange Trail

    My Track from Feb 2018. We went north from Carlton and returned west to Nouvelle. The trails varied with perfect white carpet to plowing fresh powder (West). Its a nice trail we will do it again some time. The small section of orange by Carlton that we did not touch was closed.
