  1. Gaspe- Season Ender

    Wow great pictures! Perfect weather for sure.
  2. Everything Triggerhappy says is your best bet IMO.
  3. Reggie Strikes Again

    For sure. Reggie could not be a nicer guy. Everything was nice clean and well taken care of at Drakkar as well. Ran east on mostly 3 yesterday with a few sidetracks and shortcuts. Couple fresh inches most of the way to QC. Trails in good shape and mostly groomed. Ran into some freezing rain before QC which was a nuisance. Stopped for lunch at the golf course. Nothing fancy just wanted to put something in our tanks and keep moving. East of QC snow started piling up after the power lines. Some areas id say picked up at least a foot of snow Wednesday night. Thankfully people ran through there in the morning and broke the trail open otherwise we'd been blowing through the 91 octane. Sections of 3 were choppy. Others were down right rough. Still a good run. Needed fuel so ran down 378 to Baie St Paul. Looked at the grooming map hoping 378 had been groomed more recently than 3. White line. Opted to go back to 3. Got to 377 and fresh groomer tracks! Yatzhee. Down 377 and 378 groomed all the way to Fairmont. Ran into NH Moose and crew in the hot tub. Nice meeting those guys and talking sleds. Off for Sag today.
  4. Reggie Strikes Again

    Didn't even have our gear in the room yet. My brother Drewski got cut off in this one.
  5. Ride Suggestions Ideas 3/11 - 3/17

    I'm heading for the Casino tomorrow then up 3 across the ferry before heading up to Mont Valin. I will give an update when I get back on how much snow there is from Casino heading up 3. Posts by Quebec Bob and Sno Horse suggests that Cote Nord has more snow than they know what to do with.
  6. Hotel Cancellation Policies

    I have not called anyone yet. I noticed their website prices are higher than those listed on priceline and sites of the like.
  7. Western Quebec

    A report from Timberman on Friday suggested that if you are heading north to the Mont Laurier area don't get off the black trail till Sainte Anne du Lac.
  8. Starting at Drakkar on Wed night then heading for the Casino then the Delta and back to Drakkar on a 3 day loop. Already book at Drakkar both start and finish days. Figure small place and want to get the place I want. They have a reasonable cancellation policy (24hr). When I went to book at both the casino and delta it was either pay up front, non refundable for lowest fare, or pay a little more for no fee cancellation. But fine print says only no fee cancellation up to 48 hours in advance. So question is are these places large enough that I shouldn't have a problem getting a room if I call at lunch day of our ride there? Casino will be a Thursday night, Delta will be a Friday night. I'd hate to book ahead and have weather or a break down etc change plans and still get boned with a room I don't use. Also don't want to not book then get stuck without a room because of a hockey tourney or something.
  9. 2017/18 Quebec Trail Passes

    They've never put the time on the 3 day passes I've got the last couple years. Just the date you want to start riding and the date you finish.
  10. I have a couple bottles of that Maple Whiskey at home. I better drink one before I head up to get good an acclimated!
  11. Just booked with Reggie for the 28th and 3rd. Doing a loop up to the Casino the Delta and back. Sounded like a nice guy on the phone.
  12. Team Iceman report..... trip 2

    Hope you bundled up this morning. Thats -24F (-31C)
  13. East Side or West Side of LSJ?

    Snow coverage on the west side (Roberval area) is a little lacking on snow coverage although I've read that it is passable. IMO I'd say run east.
  14. Témiscamingue region trip

    Auberge Du Draveur is a fine starting point in Maniwaki. No point in driving farther than necessary. From Lake George you are about a 6 hour drive from there. You may want to check and see what conditions are like in the area if you are thinking about going soon. I know they just had a storm come through earlier this week but up until then I had not seen a lot of grooming activity in the area.
  15. Témiscamingue region trip

    Domaine L'Ombre du Vent is in Parent and it's a great place to stay. Very nice. Very clean. Sleeps 5 or more easily. Price is very attractive. Beds are rock hard but other than that I can't complain about a thing. See pictures attached. http://www.ombreduvent.com/home.html Food around Parent? eh. Not a lot of choices for a fine dining meal but you can find something at Hotel Central right in town that'll fill your belly. I did the exact same loop you are thinking about doing 2 years ago. Did it in 3 days. If you wanted to break it up more I think Pourvoirie Fer A Cheval looked like a decent place to stay. I heard Hotel Tamarac in Clova may be open again, the school house in Clova I also heard is nice. And I've heard Pavillon La Verendrye is an ok place to stay. When I was there it didn't look like much for sleeping accommodations but I didn't stay so don't take my word on it. Good luck and have fun. It's an awesome loop that'll take you out in the middle of god's country!
