    Trak Maps

    Gutz I downloaded the biscuit map and I had the same result broken lines etc. I am running windows 10 on my main computer and it won't allow me to download the biscuit map so I went to one of my older computers with windows 7 and it worked like a charm! LOL I use trak maps for the NB trails and I agree a great product.
  3. Soyez prudent dans le sentier Senneterre vers le Balbuzar. Le ministère nous a fermé 3 ponts au mois de novembre donc celui de la rivière Senneterre. On pensait être bon pour le refaire avant noël mais on a eu nos permis du ministère seulement le 21 décembre en pm. Et comme la loi exige des ponts de 60 tonnes avec ingénierie on ne peut les faire nous mêmes donc plus de délai. AUJOURD'HUI ils sont en train d'enlever le pont de la rivière Senneterre et ils vont faire un pont de glace pour que ça passe en attendant l'installation de notre pont en janvier. On vous tiens au courant qu'and ça va passer pour aller vers le relais Tavernier, Faillon et plus. Be careful in the senneterre path to the balbuzar. THE MINISTRY CLOSED US 3 Bridges in November so that of the senneterre river. We thought we were good to do it again before Christmas but we got our ministry permits only on December 21th in pm. And as the law requires 60-ton bridges with engineering, we can't do it ourselves, so no more time. Today they are removing the bridge from the senneterre river and they are going to make an ice bridge to make it pass while waiting for the installation of our bridge in January. We'll let you know that it's going to pass to the tavernier relay, faillon and more.

  5. Mont-Tremblant National Park - Conditional and exceptional authorization granted to snowmobilers by the new Québec government QUEBEC, Dec. 13 2018 / CNW Telbec / - The Minister of Forests, Wildlife and Parks, in accordance with section 21 of the Parks Regulations, conditionally and exceptionally authorizes snowmobiling on the Caribou Trail, located in the Mont-Tremblant National Park , for the winter season 2018-2019. This authorization is linked to the establishment in December 2018 of a special working committee of the Regional Administrative Conference. This special committee will be formed jointly by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing and the Ministry of Economy and Innovation, in consultation with the Ministry of Tourism. It will bring together government and non-government stakeholders from the region to take stock of all the economic development issues facing the municipality of Saint-Donat . A report proposing possible solutions will be filed with government authorities by the end of January 2019. This access authorization, also related to the postponement of the opening of the new section of Saint-Faustin-Lac-Carré, will link the municipality of Saint-Donat to the city of Mont-Tremblant . Conditions of Use The authorization to use the Caribou Trail is subject to a series of conditions: traffic is permitted only on the Caribou Trail, a marked trail of about twenty-eight (28) kilometers taking the path n o 7 and part of the way n o 3 between the Municipalities of St. Donat and St. Michel-des-Saints ; traffic is only allowed between 7 am and 9 pm; the maximum speed allowed is 50 km / h; off-trail and waterway traffic is prohibited; no stops are permitted while crossing the national park; no snowmobile known as "two-stroke" is allowed; a signage plan and a trail maintenance plan must be submitted to the management of Mont-Tremblant National Park . Finally, snowmobilers wishing to use the Caribou trail must hold an access authorization issued upon payment of the fees. The park wardens of the Quebec Open-Air Establishment Corporation (SÉPAQ), in collaboration with the wildlife protection officers of the Ministry of Forests, Wildlife and Parks, will ensure compliance with the regulations and raise awareness among users of the Caribou Trail to respect conditions throughout the season.

    Riviere du Luop to Pembroke

    On the north side of the river you ride to the Colibri Motel to catch the shuttle and it drops you at the Bernieres Motel on the south side or vice versa.

    Riviere du Luop to Pembroke

    Hi Gerry Welcome to QR there are a great bunch of sledders on the site with hundreds of years of combined sledding experience not only in QC but all over North America. I did the ride you are considering in Feb 2015 as part of a 19 day 6300km ride from Riverview NB to Hearst On and points in between. We stayed in Pembroke at The Best Western and rode to Lancaster and stayed there can't remember the hotel name. Next day we rode to Valley-field QC and crossed the St Lawrence on the bridge on our sleds. We tried to follow the TQ5 to Sorel but there was a section that was closed/non existent. Through much trial and error we ended up on the Yamaska River and just by luck there was a huge gathering of local sledders and ATVers in a cove having a Valentines day party. They looked at these two old guys and basically said where the Hell are you guys going?LOL They gave us directions to follow the river and some local streets and trails to rejoin the regional trail system and we made our way to Sorel and stayed the night. Next day we rode on to Thetford mines and stayed the night. And as Forest Gump would say after that shrimping was easy just ride along perfect trails to RDL. If I was doing this ride again I would use the RT system and work my way down to the TQ35 as soon as possible and ride east on it as tends to be quicker and more reliable at least it was in 2015. Hope this helps some. In 2015 there was ample snow south of Montreal many years this is not the case. There are members on the site who live in the area and can provide accurate updates as the season progresses. Andy

    Anyone receive their trail permit ??

    I wrote the FCMQ when mine didn't show up and they promptly wrote back and advised me that the company who was doing the actual printing and mailing of the passes had some technical issues at the start and that they now have everything rectified and the passes are being mailed out. I ordered mine on Oct 28th and it came yesterday Nov 19th. The guy at FCMQ told me mine was mailed in the first batch with 2000 others on Nov 9th. The mail strike doesn't help either! Think snow! Andy
  14. Model B2005 used one season and they don't fit my new ride. Asking $225 CDN. You can go to their website to see if they will fit your sled. Think Snow! Andy
