  1. How far North and are you think Lab.City at all.Gaf

  2. Trail Info

    We are doing the Cote Nord trip this winter for the first time. This is a text a friend sent me just the other day describing the Godbout to Baie Comeau run.
  3. Whats everybody doing this summer?

    We are busy this fall combining 1,200 AC of beans then another 600 AC of corn here in Ontario. Need until about Nov. 20 to complete harvest, then pray for snow. Already getting our Quebec trips planned for this winter. Cote Nord will be our big trip this year. Will make another one or two shorter trips to locations TBD.
  4. This almost looks more exciting than getting a new sled. Sled is pretty predictable but the truck will be a completely new beast by the time you get it completed. Good luck on the build
  5. It’s getting closer

    Looking forward to this coming sled season. Already planning our Quebec trips. Cote Nord is in the works for our first time for that area. Anyone know when the free weekend is this year? Don't see it anywhere on the FCMQ website . Want to avoid that weekend .
  6. Whats everybody doing this summer?

    Wife and I did the east coast tour last summer. Spend 12 days wth perfect weather touring PEI, Cabot Trail and Nova Scotia on our Spyders. Beautiful country to tour on the bikes. Wonderful people everywhere you go. First of September we drove our daughter from Ontario to Halifax, Nova Scotia to start university. Returned home through the U.S. That is a beautiful drive through NH and VT. Want to return on the bikes sometime and do some exploring.
  7. One more time

    We rode there late Thursday until noon Sunday. Riding out of Rabaska Lodge. Had 3 guys with me that had never ridden Quebec. Between the perfect trails and perfect weather had great 3 days of riding to end the season.
  8. parent area

    They changed some of the trail status and the note on the Woodrunner site today. I'm not sure what "the last weekend" means. DO they close trails March 31? We were as far N as Fer Cheval and 100 du Lacs on the weekend. if they receive a bit of snow on April 5 to cover the isolated road spots and crossing there could be some great riding there if still open
  9. Really enjoyed your trip pictures Alain. We spend 3 days at the Canadaventure Lodge just north of where you stayed on the lake so recognized many of the sites. We spent the weekend riding north of Mont Laurier, what perfect weather to enjoy our season ending ride. Was also enjoyable trip because my 24 year old son was able to come with me for his first experience riding Quebec. The reservoir system in Quebec amazes me. We stayed at the Rabaska Lodge, the Baskatong Reservoir is basically empty at that location, just a river running through it. The volume of water it will take to refill these empty reservoirs is hard to imagine. Was looking at the maps and in some cases the watersheds include huge areas but have to wonder if there is enough snow to refill them? Have a great summer. Steve
  10. Cote Nord Planning For Next Season

    Thanks guys for the suggestions. Give me something to ponder over the summer.
  11. Another gas stop loss

    Fortunately these new sleds are much more fuel efficient than the older machines. We were riding the north of Mont Laurier area this weekend. In the past Nottawassi was usually a lunch and fuel stop. Luckily from QR I knew it was closed this year and we planned accordingly. This year I switched from a Yamaha Viper to a 850 Ski Doo so did get the gas caddy to carry fuel. In my case I need to carry fuel on the Doo to give us some cushion for the Arctic Cat 5000 I have for my sons to ride. It would burn about 25% more gas than my 850. But my son had to be flailing on it pretty hard as he did well to keep up with us on the bigger machines. Rode 4600 km this season and never used the spare gas once but it sure was a comfort on several occasions that someone in the group had a fuel light flashing but it wasn't a big deal because we had fuel with us. Disappointed BRP didn't come out with a split Gas/Oil caddy. Don't need to carry 4 gallons of gas. A 2.5 gas, 1 of oil would be perfect. Obvious the BRP bean counters figured they will profit more making us buy the new oil caddy.
  12. Trail report

    We rode out of Rabaska Lodge Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning. Did 1,080 km of near perfect trails. Beautiful weather made for 3 epic days of riding. Had one of my Sons and 2 other friends that had never ridden Quebec before. They will be back. Majority of the miles were couple different loops N of St Anne Du Lacs. Sight seeing loop to Devils Mountain and Chute Du Windigo. Rode through Ferme Neuve Thursday afternoon when it was + 5C. Enough slush we sneaked through but sure by Friday all the roads were bare through town. Avoided it the next couple days. Really like to thank the clubs and groomers that look after this vast area. Job well done.
  13. Cote Nord has my interest to explore a new area of Quebec for next season. What's the common staging hotel for the 3 days out and 3 days back that often hear about. Looking for the groomed trail adventure not the off trail adventure some of you do that is very interesting to follow. Did the Gaspe last year, how much of the Cote Nord is as scenic as the N shore of the Gaspe? Just got home last night from 3 days riding N of Mont Laurier. Between the perfect weather and perfect trails can't put sledding to rest, need to get planning next year. Thanks Steve
  14. Connector Trail South of 100 du Lacs?

    Thanks Mid Range Hopefully I can get the crew going early and we can circle up around Chevel and 100 Lacs so won't need the short cut. If your near Rabaska Thursday- Sat night stop in and I will buy you a drink
  15. Anyone know the status of the connector trail that runs between trail 13 and the Orange trial that runs south from Pourvoire 100 du Lacs? Woodrunner maps shows it green and open. i Moto map doesn't show a trail around the reservoir. Paper map shows a trail following road along the S side of the reservoir. If it is on the road and it's plowed likely melted off by this weekend. Staying at the Rabaska lodge this weekend, if trail is open and snow covered would work good to do a day loop. Don't want to run 14 km of bad road. Thanks Steve
