  1. Big storm came. Well over a foot. Broke trail across 63 over the top of Tremblant most of the way thru. I’m thankful for GPS technology today. Had a blast !
  2. I wear the Sorel Glaciers too. Overall a warm boot. I had to use the hothands warmers once though last year. I always carry them just in case
  3. I start a saddlebag trip tomorrow. Looks like we are breaking trail
  4. Can you share the tracks you gave ? The free Tilou Biscuit map has tracks across the Gouin between Barrage Gouin and Martin. Goes through Obedjiwan.
  5. Great to see this. Jim taught me how to ride up there. I did several rides with him. Haven’t talked to him in a long time. I know of no one that has covered the ground that this guy did. Thanks !!
  6. If your up by Malone, try Owls Head NY. Probably can find somewhere to unload. There is some decent riding up around there. I have seen Quebecers riding around that area as well. But its been a few years since I have been up that way
  7. If you want good riding in NY, go to Cranberry Lake. Not much for amenities anymore, but great riding in that area. Used to be able to find some good riding off the bar loop on the hill down around Osceola, 46 Corners out towards happy valley. Last time we went, many years ago, we started riding around 7 am, got about 100 miles in by lunch. Bounced back the 20 or 30 miles to the hotel and called it quits. Haven't been back since. the traffic, the drinkin and the bumps are too much for me anymore
  8. There is off trail opportunities in Quebec. Also the off trail segment of snowmobiling is growing fast. I have no issues with any of that. The problem is it attracts younger riders who can’t control themselves and venture off trail where they shouldn’t. The other problem is these high horsepower machines with 3” paddles destroy a groomed trail in a hurry. Mont Valin, the area that sold me on riding in Quebec many years ago is becoming unrideable to regular trail sleds due to the off trail sleds and the increase in localized traffic on Valin that off trail riding created. Whatever. To each their own. I’ll stay off Valin. But when they take our regular trails away because they ride like idiots trying to get to their off trail spots, it pisses me off.
  9. Delta or LaSagueneenne
  10. I would take 93 and the pelchat trail towards Les Escoumins. Trail is signed 'pelchat'. Its the orange trail on the fcmq map that goes to escoumins. Thats just me though
  11. The fox at Gouin have better manners than our dog at home. They will eat from your hand. Disclaimer: it is a wild animal so if it takes your finger it’s your fault
  12. That’s what they say. But 11 years in Quebec and I still haven’t seen a moose on the trail. Not in Vermont, Not in Maine, Not in Ontario either. Maybe I need to ride the Gaspe more.
  13. I have not been across that yet this year, but it’s common for that section to not get a lot of grooming. There is definitely snow. Most of that section runs along a road. Do what ya gotta do. The west side after Wemotachi is usually much better. But I have never had problems getting across it.
  14. Trail 3 has a problem around baie St Catherine I believe. Not sure if there is a detour or workaround yet. The only way across the Saguenay River out that way is the ferry. It’s a memorable experience.
