  1. Is the Mont Apica Relais open daily , just wondering if we’d be able to get fuel down that way? Thanks
  2. Where about is this lookout tower located? Definitely would like to check it out this February we missed it last season. Thanks
  3. No it would be just be in/out, just trying to plan a 2 night loop leaving from the Delta. Thanks for the reply though.
  4. Has anyone stayed at any places in Sainte Anne de beaupre just looking for a sled friendly place for the night with a restaurant if possible, no biggie if they don’t have one. Thanks.
  5. We’ve been going to Quebec for the past four years for a week in February Riding in the rivure du loupe and Lac ST Jean area and we were thinking about trying Ontario but it sounds like that area is more suited for saddle bag trips. We did the Gaspe once but we just prefer to stay in one area and do day trips. I just thought I would reach out and get some feedback on the Ontario area. Looking at their trails I kinda thought it was more of a saddle bagging area.
  6. I know this is a QR site but was wondering if anyone has snowmobiled in Ontario and if they have how’d it compare to Quebec? Also any particular area where you can stage day trips from kinda like the Lac saint Jean areas. Thanks, Terry.
  7. You can get a seasonal plan that covers both north and south of the 51st parallel that would work. correct? 3 months for $50.00 Canadian.
  8. Can anyone tell me if the Saguenay-Lac St-Jean is considered south of the 51st parallel? Looking at doing this on Our trip this winter. Pretty good deal considering what it would cost if you had to use it. The temporary protection plan doesn’t cover South of the 51st parallel. Thanks. Terry.
  9. Not so much the pool, it’s my buddy can use his points to pay for the hotel where it’s a Marriott family hotel. I looked on the map also and really didn’t see any access trail close to it but didn’t know if anyone had any experience with it.
  10. In the really early stages of next winters trip to Quebec and was wondering if anyone knows if you can ride right from this hotel to the trails. Looking at this area to stay and do day trips for the week. Thanks in advance for any feedback.
  11. Yeah I agree on the Quebec trail system also but I thought I’d at least check out the NB area, but I think we’ll stick to the Quebec system thanks for the replies though.
  12. Our loops are usually anywhere from 200-250 miles.
  13. Looking for somewhere where we can do 6 days really don’t want to move around to different places to stay that’s why we like those areas in Quebec. Just thought we’d look into doing something in New Brunswick but maybe we’ll have to stick to Quebec , not that that’s a bad thing!
  14. I know that this is the QR site but was wondering if there are any areas in New Brunswick that are comparable to Saguenay or Rivière du loop as far as staying at one place and doing day trips? Can’t seem to find much information on it anywhere online so I figured I try here. I’ve done those two areas and there probably hard to beat, but was kinda wondering about NB areas as well. Thanks in advance. Terry.
  15. Buddy and I are arriving at the Delta Saturday for the week as well, this will be our first time in the area also.
  16. Yes I love reading your posts about your trips there always very informative and interesting I’ve learned so much about snowmobiling in Quebec just from that. Thanks for the information and I definitely will be digging out maps and plan some trips. When in RDL the loops we did were about 200-220 miles so the loops in this area sounds similar. Thanks again for the information! QR is a great site with awesome people willing to give great info to fellow riders!! Terry.
  17. We’d be going in the middle of February so maybe we wouldn’t have that problem, we don’t have the wheels on the skis so it definitely would be tough on the Skaggs! Other than that how’d you find it?
  18. For the past 3 years a buddy and myself have been going to RDL and riding. 1st year we did day trips out of the universal, 2nd year we did the gaspee loop, this year we did day trips again from the universal. We both love this area but we’ve decided we’d like to try a different area of Quebec. I’m always reading different posts on QR site but I don’t post very often. I guess that makes me a troll. lol! We think we’d like to try this area and do day trips. I keep seeing people mentioning the Delta hotel and was wondering if this would be a good place to ride out of? Does the trail go right from the hotel like the universal?If I read correctly there’s secured parking for sleds and truck and trailers. Appreciate any and all the advice I receive. Thanks!
  19. Just got home yesterday from spending a week at the universal hotel in riviera de loupe doing day trips, over 1,300 miles and I love that area. Last year we did the Gaspee leaving from the universal hotel and 2 years ago we also did day trips from the universal. Now for next season we’re thinking about exploring the Levi’s area and doing day trips from there. Just looking for advice on accommodations for the week, was checking out Hotel Berriners which looks nice and says you have trail access. Any advice on loops to do would be helpful to. I know it also has to do with the conditions also. I now next season is a long way away but it never hurts to plan ahead! Thanks in advance for any information.
  20. Thanks for the input,I think we’ll try the select this year!
  21. Thanks Iceman, probably rode right by it last year but just don’t recall seeing it. Snowing pretty hard when we got there and about two feet of fresh snow the next morning!!
  22. Would like some advice on which place is the best to stay in Amqui, we stayed at the Ambassadeur last year and it was fine. Thinking about trying the Selectotel this year and was wondering about trail access. Only one night so it’s not a big deal. Just thinking about switching it up this year. Thanks
  23. This is great news, looks like our first saddle bag trip of the gaspee starting 2/11/17 from RDL is back on. Thanks!
  24. It might be getting old for the people that are familiar with the Quebec areas and the trail system but for us that aren't and are planning a trip up there it's not! Sorry if you're getting irritated but just trying to get some information.
  25. We're planning to leave RDL on saturday Feb 11th to do the gaspee loop do you think they'll have this issue resolved soon or should I cancel the trip and book something up in the county here in Maine. Really up in arms on what to do!!
