Well we were up for 4 days of riding and to break in the new sled with 1100 km. Only one off trail adventure and no one was injured in that unexpected experience.. As for trail condition 23 was bumpy to l'tape but good north to hebertville , all lower LSJ is just passable . L'tuque. north to is ok not great and the trail from relais 22 to hedgewick has the first 20 km torn up by bulldozer for some logging. You have to go more north of LSJ. to get good snow,we stuck mostly to the west side and did the tour of the 49 th. passere // e du , big push on this year to promote this side of Mt. valin area. and definitely worth it.. MT. vilain was good and met some nice people.. Not the same crowd that you get on the west side.. GOOD to get out for the first time this year and meet CT rider to do the trip together .They are expecting 30 plus cm of new snow in next couple days ..We headed out before the freezing rain , just got a touch friday morning leaving hebertville .All is good can't wait to go again after this weather settles down..
