  1. Trail hoes straight through like it used to dead ends at la verande now
  2. Day 2 The plan was to continue West either Val Dor or Belletere. Quick call and the forestel is all booked up. Ok, destination Paquin in Belletere. 322 to Tq63. Although there is quite a bit of snow here they obviously need more. Ridiculous amount of brush sticking through the snow, especially after Le domaine. Although just groomed the day before it was a mess till it opens up on the forest road. Into la Verande for fuel and lunch. Super nice owner. Said she will definitely be open next year for lodging. She said they lost there Dachsund to a Wolf last fall. From there 63 fast and smooth. It’s been about 4 years since I’ve been out this way, forgot about that 30 mile super tight twisty stretch from lake Truit to Belletere. Not what the doctor ordered to end the day. At the Pacquin now actually a real nice place. Headed over to the local Pub, great time with the locals. I do believe the plan is Matagami next. 265 miles for the day
  3. Yep here now long day! Exhausted From 2 days of twisties headed next door to the Indian bar! Looks packed! Should be interesting!
  4. Anyone ever stay at paquin in belletere? not many options out that way
  5. Enjoy boys, let’s hook up in February
  6. Called this morning, only 3 others here tonight. Food is outstanding as are the rooms
  7. Five of us arrived at motel St Come Wednesday afternoon. Trying a new spot to launch from other then Shawinigan being this is a western run. Reasonable place $45 each a night, only draw back the town is shut tight! No food! The owner ended up cooking us a fettuccine Alfredo, awesome! Morning plan is to head to point Le Daived on the baskatong. Out of the gate head in the wrong direction. 40 miles later back on track. Trails pretty woopped around Mt Laurier. Warm temps and traffic taking a toll. Into la point Daived just as it’s getting dark. Beautiful place with a saq! $116 a night for a suite with breakfast and dinner, can’t beat it! Headed towards belle tier in the morning. 230 miles
  8. Amazing no one around with the lack of snow in the states, nice! 5 of us are headed up in the morning for a western run out of st come, it’s time!
  9. Personally have never heard of it. The Tremblant area is generally not sled friendly, that I do know
  10. Think it depends where tq3 is closed and for how long. Orange local looks to loop around
