  1. Hi All, Looking to see if anyone knows of a snowmobile accessible only cabin rental, looking to ride mostly off trail from a remote base camp - I understand this presents the need to tow in supplies and gas, but we are looking at it as an overall adventure! Let me know if you have any suggestions. THINK SNOW

    Le Chenail du Nord

    We stayed at Chenail Du Nord and linked from there over to Wapishish! This was the first week of Feb 2018!
  3. Looking for some insight on where to head next week - 3/3 - 3/11 ... group of two from Akron, Ohio - we typically ride Quebec - mostly Mont Valin and St Michelle areas. Option 1 - Ontario - 520 miles or 8 hrs in the truck - Sault - Hearst- Cochrane - Timmins - Chapleau - Sault - this would be our first time in Ontario, not sure what to expect from a grooming/traffic stand point Option 2 - Western Quebec - 803 miles or 14 hrs in the truck - Val'dor - Matagami - Chib - Roberval - Gouin - Balbuzard - Val'dor - we have covered this are before Option 3 - Gaspe - 950 miles or 15 hrs in the truck - no set route as of yet, but I think your typical Gaspe loop would work for us. In Feb we rode the Cote-Nord and saw the North side of the St. Lawrence. The shorter drive to Ontario is appealing, but it is not the end all be all - unfortunately we are used to driving...we have season passes to Quebec, but again it is not a problem to buy an Ontario permit.

    Gaspesie Trail Conditions

    I have traded emails with them recently, I also purchased my annual permit from there site and it was redirect to the FCMQ . . . I just received the permit in the mail today and it was purchased on 12/9.

    Best loop to include the Mountains!

    We are a group of 4 - we all ride well together! We like to have a plan in place as a guide, but we all realize things change and plans might have to adjust . . . I'm not sure we have had a trip workout exactly as planned on the computer. It looks like we might adjust Day 1 and split it into two lighter days, as of now it looks like we will be a late arrival into RDL and no reason to over do it on day one . . .

    Best loop to include the Mountains!

    Here is a quick layout I did on the Interactive map - any issues with any of these days?
  9. Hi All, I have been looking and reading at all the other loops people have done on the Gaspe, plan on giving it a go the first week of Feb. We would like to see the interior Chic Choc mtns as well as the coast, looking for the best layout to see the best of both and not miss any must do's if possible. I have contacted Dale and Louise at quebectrails and they suggested the following (leaving from RDL): "I would suggest staying on TQ5 as far as Mont St-Pierre then cutting down 597 to Murdochville, from there over to 595 down to New Richmond then to Chandler back up 597 to Murdochville again back to 595 then up to Matane." Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Think Snow
  10. Update - just spoke with the federation and they claim that have a number of people in similar situations - they claim it is a Canadian Post issue. They advised me to use my 14 day temporary even tho it expired on 12/23 as they are aware of the problem and that I should put the paper temp permit in a plastic bag and tape it onto my sled! I guess I can get a replacement permit once we hit Quebec, but I hate paying for something that I already paid for...maybe since I posted this it will be in the mail box today!
  11. So I waited till the deadline and purchased my season pass on 12/9 and I have yet to receive it in the mail . . . anyone else? All I have is my receipt and the computer generated 14 day temporary - I guess I will just bring my paperwork with me! I called the club that I used the online checkout from and they said to call the Federation, that is on my list of to do's today. THINK SNOW!!!
  12. Personally I am not a fan of the LinQ Gas Can and luggage, this year I ran the following setup and it worked out great! WhiteOut Tech Rack, 2 Rotopaks mounted to the rack, and a Mountainsmith waterproof duffel (ROK straps are amazing to hold the duffel in place)! The LinQ mounts hold the rack on, so I can take everything off the sled with the 4 LinQ releases. I ran one rotopak for gas and one for oil!!

    Final Ride 2017 - Where to go?

    Looks like Ravage is closed, I need to confirm 100% but ...
  14. Leaving Ohio on Wednesday 4/5/17 for one last run, the shorter the drive the better...but realize what we are chasing. Looking for the best option to get 3 final days in - below are a couple ideas we have, a lot has to do with the storm coming in Tuesday/Wednesday and what is open/closed. Open to input and suggestions!! Option 1 - (Safest) Truck to Mt Valin and ride the area for 3 days! Option 2 - Auberge le Cabanon - Gouin - 100 Lacs - le Cabanon OR Cabanon - Gouin - La Tuque - Cabanon Option 3 - Charlevoix Region- maybe start out of St. Brigitte-de-laval and run up to LeTape and maybe over to Ravage and back down!
  15. Looking to get confirmation if Relais Wapishish is Open or Closed...Mont Valin region! Thanks
