  1. There is good news concerning the trail closure in La Macaza that created a dead end on 63. A deal has been made with another land owner to bypass the closure.
  2. Basically the work on it is all finished, but there are a handful of residents that are now complaining about before it even opens. There is a group of mediators that will work to listen to the residents concerns and I presume find solutions make assurances. The Quebec government has invested close to 3 million dollars in this section of trail, I am reasonably sure they are not going to walk away from the trail, but when / if it opens, I think there will be lots of stop signs at every driveway and a low maximum speed limit. I do hope that everyone that passes on it respects whatever restrictions they impose to appease those residents, more than ever it will just take a few throttle jockeys to screw it for all of us.
  3. And there in lies a lot of the problem, you can’t please everyone. Take any activity you want and there are those who will be against it simply because it is not their cup of tea.
  4. While it may be ironic it is also worrisome that she has joined forces with M. lacroix, these guys took the snowmobile club, the city and the Quebec government to court over the pitit Train de Nord and won. If that is the direction these people take we may never see this trail opened or shut down in short order. one point that is made in the article is why the trail does not go down the medium of the 117, there may be logistics that made it not practical but I have to agree, it would have been bulletproof. Shortly after the pitit train de nord was closed in order to get by the closure we did travel down the medium once. The medium is about a 40-50 feet wide grassy area with gullies, trees and rock out crops to get by but if it was doable then it would have been an option to construct the trail there.
  5. I read about this in the local Tremblant paper. Maybe they have some valid concerns like having their driveways cross the trail and speeding sleds while they are trying to drive out, BUT, one women complained they cut all the trees that blocked the noise from the traffic and view of the 117, unfortunately the trees were not on her property, the owner of a property can cut down his trees if he wants regardless of his neighbours wishes last time I heard. Another resident said his neighbour could not open his garage door without standing on the trail, huh what municipality gave him permission to build right at the edge of his property line, not Tremblant I am sure. Knowing the area well, I am also sure that the continual hum of the traffic and the amount of big trucks rolling past or Jake braking as they slow down will more than drown out the noise of today’s quiet sleds. Grrr, can’t they even wait and see if they have any real concerns before b*tching? Sorry rant over.
  6. My brain hurts.😁 Actually part way through I was able to switch back and forth much quicker.
  7. Looks like they plowed the road a little while before the pic was taken. I am 15 minutes outside of Tremblant, few flakes flying around windy that’s all. Pic you posted of Tremblant must have been on top of the mountain. They will be making snow tonight up there. Looks like a stretch of continued Cold weather coming. Need to freeze the ground and swamps before the heavier snow comes.
  8. Where exactly in Quebec is this?
  9. My deepest sympathies to you and your family. May you find comfort in the memories and good times you have had with your brother.
  10. Thank you. An early thanksgiving gets the best Birds.😁😁😁😁
  11. 52 km detour via the 323 to Labelle and then the 325 which is actually the pitit train du Nord as is the 63 where they join up.
  12. Fuse not sure the exact spot but I guess it is in that general area. Guys are asking on Face book exactly where but nothing pinpointed yet except the article does say the Depanneur / resto-bar LaMacaza is the last commercial stop before the closure.
  13. Looks like a loss of access on private land will make the 63 a dead end at La Macaza for this season unless a solution is found. https://linformationdunordvalleedelarouge.ca/actualites/2019/10/8/le-sentier-trans-quebec-63-se-scinde-a-la-macaza.html#.XZ4BrWk3mOA.facebook
  14. Going to be hard for snowmobile haters to shut this part down, the noise from the traffic on the 117 hwy far exceeds the noise of today’s sleds.
  15. I have no idea how they will do that, I know that the original plan required at least one bridge type structure along the route, I want to see where they end up. Shortly after they closed that section of the Petite Train de Nord, we ran up the 117 median a few times, talk about some tight places past blasted rock in there.
