  1. Suggested Tour guide?

    I vote for Iceman and Trail Blazer on an easy ride to Havre St Pierre
  2. Fremont show

    Everybody is going
  3. Iceman and Friends head east.

    Great trip with all of the components that make our sport the greatest. Comaraderie, memories, challenge, ingenuity, adrenaline, natural beauty and the thrill of whatever the trail sends your way. Great job to all whose talents and skill made this mission a total success. I've gotta believe that the SledMagazine.com / Motoneiges.ca SideWinder was the first SideWinder ever at Havre St Pierre.
  4. It was still winter this past weekend with very good conditions. Jambon Creton is always a good time. I even saw some very special friends of the Relais Chapelle. Sunday morning was 0F with 5" of fresh and first tracks on the Bras Louis. Is not over until you truck and trailer say it's over. Enjoy a few photos. Go ahead Call Auberge 31 and make another ride. They say that grooming will continue to the 15th
  5. It was definitely a weekend mission that included everything that is great about snowmobiling. Friends, fun, trails, scenery, Quebec hospitality, mental and mechanical challenges and creative / collaborative solutions to adversity. The laughs and memories are added to our history and will last forever. It was an 1,100 km blast.
  6. No more STUDS in QUEBEC??

    Crisis averted and the idiocy stopped. Here is the retraction, It's in french but is there. Thanks to everyone who assisted me in my direction of effort. I wanted to reply to each of you individually, but time was focused on the task at hand. Together I think we made an impact. We have a voice
  7. "Call to action" to Quebec Transport's pilot project "stud ban"

    Our efforts and those of many others have been successful. Crisis averted and idiocy overcome.
  8. "Call to action" to Quebec Transport's pilot project "stud ban"

    Thank you for the many responses that have been sent More questions as to the possible logic of this and WE should do something are great. But you need to act. Please keep your targeted comments coming to me at greg.gilbert@motoneiges.ca or submit them directly to ministre@mtq.gouv.qc.ca I continue to forward dozens of responses daily to the following questions. What is your reaction to this sudden news? How will this action impact your personal (and you groups) immediate participation in Quebec snowmobiling experience? How will this action effect the perception of Quebec snowmobiling? How do you categorize the use or your use of traction products? How do you think a stud ban will affect future or new American QuebecRiders? Even if you are not personally effected, you should still have an opinion on the overall implication of this. Add your voice to this issue and offer your respectful thoughts and email them to me at greg.gilbert@motoneiges.ca SledMagazine.com / Motoneiges.ca will continue to organize responses for maximum highlight and impact. UPDATE Due to this "call to action" effort a MTQ official has directly reached out to me (not the auto reply) and invited a further exchange of information. I don't know if this contact can direct us towards or stimulate the necessary change. It is my sincere effort on behalf of all QuebecRiders and the Quebec snowmobiling industry to do all I personally can to right this ill advised wrong.
  9. "Call to action" to Quebec Transport's pilot project "stud ban"

    Many QRs continue to reply. Comments have been respectful, thoughtful, realistic and direct. Keep them coming. The pressure and messages must continue to come from all directions. greg.gilbert@motoneiges.ca What's next? No carbide runners because they also impact the roads? The MTQ is uniformed and misguided on this. They must be taken to task on this action. Retraction, clarification, moratorium, exemption? . We can not sit idle and wait to see how this works out or if you happen to get a ticket. It needs to be fixed immediately. If they want our continued positive economic impact, they must take our minor traction product impact.
  10. "Call to action" to Quebec Transport's pilot project "stud ban"

    Thank you to those who have emailed me, keep them coming. All of QRs shadow readers need to come out and add your voice to this issue.
  11. Our organized response is needed and your assistance is immediately requested. Needless to say this news has been a shock to many without any reasonable notice. I am personally effected as much as anyone. FCMQ's input on this subject was totally dismissed and they are also furiously working on efforts to immediately delay or recall this ill advised ruling. Our SledMagazine.com and Motoneiges.ca magazines are actively joining in the effort to organize facts, response and objection to this pilot project. I ask for your time in sending me your reaction and comments on the following What is your reaction to this sudden news? How will this action impact your personal (and you groups) immediate participation in Quebec snowmobiling experience? How will this action effect the perception of Quebec snowmobiling? Even if you are not a stud user, we ask for your opinions on this. How do you categorize the use or your use of traction products? How do you think a stud ban will affect future or new American QuebecRiders? I ask that you please take the time to offer your realistic, concerned and respectful thoughts now and email them to me at greg.gilbert@motoneiges.ca SledMagazine.com / Motoneiges.ca will organize QuebecRider responses for maximum consideration and impact. If you have already forwarded a response or post a reply in this thread for others to see, please take the time to forward it to me at the above address. Time is critical as I believe that everyday that this news spreads or that this action is not reversed, irreparable damage is being done to the enjoyment of our passion and Quebec's winter economy.
  12. passport renewal question

    Whatever I need to get in, that's what I'll have. Nexus has helped save time getting into Qc, but saves zero time returning to US. We just don't seemed to have it together or properly staffed on our end.
  13. mont apica !!!

    Looking good
  14. M. Yvon Fortin

    Great guy, great family. His efforts are what made the Monts Valin.
  15. The new iron arrived.

    Oh what a feeling! Congrats
