  1. Mt Valin looking good

    I haven't been up to the area since 2008 (been riding The County in Maine and the UP). We've been wanting to come back since then. Are you guys staying at the old Holiday Inn? What is the name of the hotel now? Our first trip of the year is usually Dec. 26th through NY. Would love to ride that area this year. T
  2. 2016 Jack & Sandi's trip

    All XP, XR, and XS chassis dos have an air pocket when filling with gas. Fill the tank until gas comes up in the neck. Then kneel on the back bumper for a few seconds. It should take another gallon after that. I've had to do that on all my Doos from 08 thru 15.
  3. St Come area

    Thanks guys. I am taking someone that would like to get a picture on the swinging bridge near Notre-Dame-de-la-Merci ??. She has a picture of her dad crosing it back in the mid 90's and wants to get one of herself on it. Hopefully, we can get down there from St. Zenon
  4. St Come area

    Do you think the colder temps that are coming Sun - Wed will help with grooming? We are heading up on Wed. Thanks

  9. his is a brand new with the tags still on Ladies large coat. I bought it for my wife and it is a little too big for her The Warrior is the one with a removeable liner, elbow and shoulder pads, 4 outside pockets, 2 inside pockets The outside is Reima Tec - Waterproof and breatheable These jackets are hard to find since Scott bought out Reima and the jackets are not as nice now. These originally retailed for $299, but I found it at a dealer for $110. I will sell for $110 plus shipping These are incredible jackets. Email Ultrastryk@comcast.net
  10. Riding partner

    I'd like to get up there, but there is great snow just south of Mt. Laurier, which saves me 5 hours in the truck. We are heading to Cheneville/Montpellier area on Friday. Maybe next time. Bill
  11. Trails great in southern, central qc

    I was wondering where you ended up going and how you made out. Did you saddlebag the trip? We ended up going to the UP and are having a blast. The rain turned to snow right after we got here, and it has snowed every day since. Trails are beautiful, and the scenery is different in the UP. It is nice to go somwhere that they speak english for a change. It's also nice to fill your sled up for $17. I hope I can get to Quebec to use my permit sometime this winter.
  12. Lac St. Jean Conditions??

    I guess it's a good thing that we came to the UP. Even with all the rain they had on sat, the trails have been great. Lake Superior is an incredible site in the winter. Now I know how the sailors on the Edmond Fitzgerald felt :) It doesn't get as cold up here in the winter according to the locals. Mainly in the mid 20's because of the warm air coming off the lakes.

    Scorpion, We decided to head to the UP as they have a little more snow at this time. It sounds like Mt. Valin is great, but may be tougher getting there is they get the rain on Sat or sun. The funny thing is that we originally planned to rent a cabin up at Passion Mt. Valin. I am sure they are full with skiers now. Have fun and thanks for the updates. Bill
  14. Lac St. Jean Conditions??

    Is there enough snow now? Is is just grooming that needs to be done? We don't leave for Chic until Sat am, but part of our group is leaving tonight and he can't decide between going there and going to the UP. If you get this can you post more details tonight? Did the storm only produce 3"? Are the southern trails still too thin. I can't take the stress :) If we head to Chic, it sounds like there might not be enough snow to give us a variety for 6 days. The UP has plenty of snow, but not sure if Michigan grooms enough for a holiday week. Help. Bill
  15. Lac St. Jean Conditions??

    Thanks for the update. Hopefully you will get that snow tonight. I like riding some of those trails south of the river, so hopefully they will improve. Keep us posted. Bill
