    Bloody Good News!

    Stéphane Bisson, president of the Association Motoneigistes Vallée de la Nation just posted on their facebook site this bit of very good news: "Great news the Riopel at Montpellier will reopen. Just talk yesterday evening to new owner and the goal is to reopen for december all services bar motel and restaurant. She will change name of the business and major renovations will be done includings motel rooms. She will be the official new owner at the end of september. We welcome her and wish her all luck to be succesfull. Will keep you update on offical reopening!" It was a dark time without good old Riopel's last winter, one that we hope is not soon repeated. I hope anyone trailering to Montpelier, or sledding in the area, will drop in to the re-opened establishment and encourage them with the purchase of a meal and/or a few beverages.

    Well I did something special today. I married the love of my life for the second time in our life. Wonderful day with our two sons and three grandchildren and many friends and family. Only one missing was my step daughter. Not because she didn't want to be there. Life is great for us.

    I seldom haul fuel, but when I do I scavenge what ever I can find to do it. These empty Slush Puppy concentrate jugs happened to be available and were a perfect fit. I had the lemon lime, Chris had the cherry, Jeff had the blue stuff (high test). This became know as our slush fund.

    Eco trails

    Gullyrider, thank you for your input and especially thank you for clarifying , publicly, what I have known for years, and yes even though many suffer financially, many on the other side just do not care who it hurts, as long as they get their way. It really make no sense to me, you would think that there would be a large push back from business and employees, if these trails go away, folks outside of the city will see a lot of business hurting. I am a business man and when I see the amount of people at the hotels, restaurants and fuel stops, it makes me feel good that these people are earning a good dollar from us..and unlike the US, most are very happy and smiling to be busy and running hard...there is a lot to be lost...or gained...in this conversation...that will not go away!! Thank you for this post.

    Eco trails

    We've been told by legislators that trails through parks is a dead issue and it will not be re-visited (check out the severed portion of the Regional Trail 323 between Thurso and Plaisance. We begged for a 14' X 46' corridor through the eastern end of the Plaisance Park alongside the Thurso ferry to allow our Ontario members direct access to our trail about a half a klick from there and were met by a blanket refusal) This has hurt our club tremendously. Anyone who thinks that Québec bureaucrats give a damn about the 14,000 Québec jobs created by snowmobilers is sadly mistaken. I know .... I've sat across the table from them often enough and, when they aren't pecking at their Blackberries, they just glare at you with barely disguised contempt and hostility.

    Eco trails

    Ecosentier is a programme that clubs can opt into should they so choose. It simply means using best practices when installing culverts and bridges and when brushing and so forth on selected sections of trails and then applying to have that section designated as "eco" friendly. It's all optics and PR of course, but it gives us a bit of ammunition whenever we're under attack by eco-freaks and the media at large. It's good for press releases and whatnot, but, though it earns clubs a bit of environmental credibility, it doesn't earn them any extra moolah ... at least none that I'm aware of. We haven't bothered to opt in, but some of the neighbouring clubs have. With respect to the ever temporary moratorium on lawsuits, it has to do with the Judge Langlois judgement on the Petit Train du Nord north of Ste-Agathe. A small group of landowners adjacent to a 12km section of the train tracks sued the Provincial and Regional governments, and the FCMQ, for establishing a snowmobile trail along that corridor. Bizarrely, the judge not only agreed to close the trail, but unexpectedly awarded damages to all residents within a given distance from the trail amounting to hundreds of thousands of dollars. It was the landowner, the regional government (regional governments are known as MRC's), that was on the hook for the payment, and the precedent exposed ALL landowners in the province to lawsuits from their neighbours when they allowed trails on their own property. The morning after the judgement, clubs everywhere were being notified of land-use agreements being cancelled by justifiably fearful landowners, be they private or municipal. The provincial government at the time had to impose a law blocking such lawsuits. However, since such bans are essentially "unconstitutional", they can't be permanent. We've been wrestling with this issue ever since, and initiatives such as the nighttime closure of trails and the ban of new trails closer than 30 metres from a residence are just some of the results. Since I'm not much of a legal expert, I have no idea how this will end up. I do know that there are a large number of greedy neighbours and just plain haters rubbing their hands together in anticipation of launching lucrative lawsuits against their neighbours ...

    Moose Valley NB

    If you run 85 in there are permits available at service stations along main road. If coming from Amqui area there are none available though Tim at Moose Valley surely sells them. Make reservation far in advance if you want to stay there only 5 little cabins. It is a most wonderful ride and highly recommend it. Oh yes watch out for moose they don’t call it moose valley for nothing.
