  1. Will do. Thanks for the update. who would think that to much snow would be a problem. We may have to rethink our area, although I think most everywhere is pretty deep.
  2. Econo Lodge, right on the trail, gas station, st hubert's and ski doo across the street. Pretty good amount of parking.
  3. Nice report, blue skies are the best up in Quebec when it is clear out. Heading up this Friday for a week ride.
  4. We stayed at motel Blanchet in Nicolet 1st of Feb 2019, left truck and trailer there for a week no problem. My question is has any one rode out of La Cache a Maxime in the town of Scott in Chaudiere Appalaches area. How is truck & trailer parking and how is the trail out of the motel. is there side walk or road riding to be encountered? Heading up this friday to the area, any info would be great. Thanks.
  5. Glad to hear you made it okay. It's been a while since I crossed the bay, but when I did there was a few of pressure ridges that were marked. It's a great shortcut for sure. Ride safe. Heading up somewhere in Quebec Feb 1st. Can't wait.
  6. Thanks again for the great report. It amazing how the shawinigan river trail is holding up.
  7. Great to see such nice trails! Keep up the great reports.
  8. Breaking in my new 2017 leftover pro-s 800 around my house, 30 miles this past weekend. Hope to see you in Quebec this winter George.
  9. The Dura a Flex Ice Scratchers work great, I think any cable style scratcher ( some other brands out there now ) should work just fine. Here is a new item out there i just purchased that others might be interested in. On my 2017 Polaris Switchback there is not much, if any room to mount. Many other brands may have this problem. Check these out. Going to make for a clean install with no drilling. Just installed, check it out.
  10. Lac St Jean area is great. I was just thre last week. You can do 200 + mile loops easy from alma (hotel universal) or Delta hotel in Jonquire. You could Ride to Chibougamau 1 day and back the next. We rode from Alma to Sacre-Coeur on day, Sacre-Coeur to Petit Saguenay back down to La Malbie (casino area) Then quebec or st Raymond next day, then back up to Saguenay area. Like I say there is a lot of area up there north of the River to explore day loops. It is a long haul up there but this year its worth it. Two of my friends rode from Mount Laurier to Saguenay and met us in Saguenay on 2/6/16 and they returned 2/13/16. Hope this helps.
  11. They should of called it a Hot Dog with all that ketchup & mustard on the hood. LOL
  12. Go to Canadian Tire, They have Shell full syn., Or my favorite on the trail oil Castrol Blue Snow, $28 / gallon or out on the Gaspésie some places have HI Per Tech full syn. and its $40 or less a gallon. I know many of you are oil fanatics, I have used every different oil in my 2006 Polaris 600, 10,000 miles & still going strong. Same for my 2012 600 Switchback, 6500 miles so far so good!
  13. Thanks for report, snow pack & trails look and sound encouraging after the big rain / thaw. Rode the abitibi area last 2 years, #93 is by far one of my favorites. Heading to quebec 2/7/14, not sure where yet. Looks like most areas are getting back to good conditions. Cant wait to get up to Quebec!
  14. Nice report, love the pictures, it gives us hope to see the base is holding up quite nicely. I like the icy corner pic by st.donat, my studded track would like it. We are heading up to Maniwaki this Friday 2/8/13, going to ride up to Abitibi area do a big week loop. Looks like it will be a long drive in the snow (heading up 81 from Syracuse) Thanks again for the report!
  15. I just made a reservation yesterday for february. Lady speaks english, I am staying for 2 days the heading out on a similiar run. She said i could leave my truck & trailer there for a week. I think it should be fine & i think they should have plenty of space being a golf course. Last year I had to park it in IGA Parking lot (with permision) in Mt Laurier as the hotels in that area dont have the space and did not want to let me leave it that long. hope this helps, if you can get to the area, trail 93 from la sarre to val d or is a nice run, also for someting different & nice, take local orange trail off of 93 that goes west, across lac abitibi then back east to 93
