  1. No problem coming back to USA if that's where you're from. We can't get into Canada and Canadians can't get into US.
  2. Any issues either way with the corona virus? Wanting to go to LSJ next weekend and would hate to be turned away at the border. Appreciate any help Fred
  3. Looks like TQ 33 is open and groomed last night
  4. Merci beucoup Alain!! Fred
  5. Headed there on Sunday, hopefully I'll be open and it's just temporary.
  6. That's TQ 33 not TQ 3
  7. Today the FCMQ map show TQ 3 North of Coin Lavinge as being closed. Does anyone have any information on this? Thanks, Fred
  8. My wife and I stayed here Saturday 2/8 to Wednesday 2/12. My second time here, last time with 5 guys and we stayed in the cottage adjacent to the hotel. This time had awesome room in the hotel. They got like 2 feet on snow Thursday and Friday. Guys we talked too said Saturday was tough with huge drifts in the open fields. Great Sunday brunch then a ride to L'Ours Noir for lunch in Warwick. Trails great, except TQ 25 near the Manoir, it sucked the entire 3 days, maybe the local groomer is down? Second day to the Club at Bueceville all good except TQ 25 near the hotel. Third day to RESTO-BAR RELAIS DES MONTAGNARDS, really cool sled Relais and off the charts smoked meat sandwich. Great riding especially the straits on TQ 35 took the local orange trail fro TQ 25 to TQ 35. It was like frosting on cake both ways. Hardly anybody seems to use it and was perfect. The Manolir is a great place to go with your wife/GF. Friendly staff, clean rooms, great gourmet food, valet" sled parking in a heated/locked garage, and an outdoor spa is one of the nicest I've seen. All in all a nice few days with the Mrs. Back to Domaine Bazenet in 2 weeks with the guys. Chaudiere Applaches shouldn't be overlooked bu those coming from the US. Less time on the "black trail" and more time riding. Fred
  9. Last year we went (by accident) to the Drakkar by way of the Gouveneur. The trail from the Goveneur to the Drakkar was some of THE WORST snowmobiling I have ever seen. And last year there was tons of snow in Shawinagan. Piled from the street over peoples lawns to the roof of their houses. This trail was rocks, paved and plowed parking lots. Sleds actually overheating AND you HAVE to cross the river near the dam. Last year that was fine but not so sure this year. You will not be sorry about choosing the Drakkar for sled and truck safety as well as easy (50 feet) access to the groomed trail with gas like 250 yards away visa perfect groomed trail. Downtempo Shawinigan is great to go out and eat but I would never want to sled out of there ever again, relive me it was pitiful and I line in PA where are trails (if we ever get snow) are usually junk.
  10. ?Broken or a scale model of a wind turbine?
  11. By La Manoir do you mean Manoir du Lac William?
  12. Double Tree by Hilton (old Sheraton 4 points) id a good place to start to LSJ from. left rig there may times with no issues. Not much riding in and out with the closure of TQ3 to Baie St Paul, but, if your planning on going to the Delta it's a pretty straightforward ride. Make sure to gas up at L'Etape on your way up. Fred
