Dennis Lavoie, Senior Columnist with Motoneiges.CA writes "Trail 595 between St-Paulin and La Cache finally open" If the article reads in French consider cutting & pasting the link into google translator. https://motoneiges.ca/actions/page?docId=11624&ctx=ctx&p=Le sentier 595 entre St-Paulin et La Cache enfin ouvert&request_locale=fr
  2. Ha ha ..very true. If we had only known. Summer started riding snowmobiles with me at age 8. Loves the snowmobile, refuses to ride the ATV or HD. If my memory serves me right I put a 1+1 seat on my 2006 MXZ-X 800 while her older sister Taylor inherited my 2000 MXZ 700. Aside from moving up from a 2013 - 600 ACE Renegade & currently running a brand new, out of the box, 2020 900T Summer is a very fortunate young lady for many reasons. One of which, in October 2017, at the age of 20, Summer was in Memorial Sloan Kettering here in Manhattan where she underwent liver resection surgery. Since recovering Summer hasn't missed a beat. Her surgeon states Summer is the poster child for liver resection & wishes everyone could do as well as she did. Needless to say, it is a delight to see Summer so happy on the sled, loving life & wanting to spend time with family while on winter break from her last few months in college.
  3. Ran my Oxygen helmet last week for the first time w/o incident. On a recommendation from a friend, I did leave the setting on max / 3. As a result, the helmet did make my head feel warm at times. I was told the rear light would brighten when the sled's brake was applied. A bright idea : ) if in fact that is suppose to happen. I never did verify it or if they were putting me on. I transitioned from the BVS2 helmet the latter of which I thought could not be better, aside from the extremely expensive heated shields, of which I went through many.
  4. Summer loved her first trip to Quebec. Here are a few photos of Summer on her maiden voyage with the new 2020 - 900T. Normally I would have liked for her to ride it first in Pittsburg in case of any hidden gremlins but we didn't have the choice so we rolled the dice & thankfully the sled ran flawlessly. She enjoyed the lengthy straightaways in the blueberry fields. Additionally, we had the weather in our favor. Had it been this weekend with the frigid temps I don't think she would have enjoyed it as much. We are blessed.
  5. It was minus 22F traveling on the 175 black trail through the park this morning. All in all the trek was uneventful, thankfully As always, it was great seeing some of the Q.R. members. Pat, Gary, smooth, hard-packed trails await you. Safe travels to Quebec. I hope our paths cross in February. Gutz brothers, sorry we missed you on this journey.
  6. Playhard, too funny. Great observation skills. I had to review the video to see what you were referring too. I guess you could call it a sugar binky. It is a powdered-sugar sour candy. I think it is called "bottle pop". Our daughter picked it up @ L'etape. Thursday was another great day. We rode up and around Mount Vilain where we reunited with Anniik & Martin. We closed out the afternoon by dropping down to relais Resto-Bar La Grenouille. Cold weather has arrived. On the return from La Grenouille to the hotel as the sun was setting it was quite obvious the temperature had dropped significantly. The forecast is predicting a low of minus 17 and a high of minus 6. Those taking advantage of the free snowmobile weekend that starts tomorrow, Saturday the 18th, be sure to dress appropriately. For us today, we will travel the black trail. It was a great few days. Weather & conditions were optimum and the company I was in topped it out. So it was a trifecta for us. Scheduled to return in mid-February. Stay safe all. Paddy O
  7. Relais Mont Apica....Yes open daily.. If you speak french give them a jingle or write to them on FB. If you are going to write & you do not write French consider using Google translator to translate your English to French & their response from French to English. Far from perfect but I find when I use Google translatorI can make out the gist of the point.
  8. Again great conditions, albeit it was warm @ 20F. We trekked to the cave & then over to KM31. Check out the size of the icicle laying at the base of the entrance to the cave. On the return, from KM31, for the first time, we dropped into the IMAGO Village for a quick look around & refreshment. Neat place
  9. Roads were ICY to say it kindly. Fortunately we came out of our incident well. Others not so fortunate. IMG_3389.MOV
  10. Mont Apica ....75 miles + - south of Saguenay, (Hotel Delta) directly off trail # 23. The Mont Apica Relais with fuel & food is only a minute south of the turn off for the tower. An easy 10 minute + - climb from the turn off to the tower.
  11. Traveled through the park on the 175 black trail on Monday, sadly not without incident. In the end, all is well. Conditions are optimum out of the Delta. Below are a few photos of my wife & daughter from the top of Mont Apica. Those on the fence, trying to consider whether or not to jump should make the trek.
  12. JG, have you ever come across a wolf this big ?
  13. As usual great photos. It looks like plenty of moose activity in a specific area you chose to photograph. What is responsible for the paw-like tracks depicted in this posts attachment? As always thank you. Paddy O
  14. Sweet. Thanks for making the effort with the posts. Paddy O
  15. https://chaudiereappalaches.com/en/itineraries/snowmobile-the-grand-tour/?oft_id=6943738&oft_k=30ayTdp1&oft_lk=PMaUV7&oft_d=637131230010500000 Definitely short mileage days for some but I'm of the opinion persons who are on the fence / considering riding Quebec may feel very confident with the specifics outlined & easily provided herein. Great public relations in the manner it is promoted.
