Cabano

Was at the Toronto snowmobile show this weekend. There was a few booths from the Quebec Clubs but certainly a lot less vendors & booths in general this year.

Stopped at the booth and gentlemen indicated there is a new owner of the Cabano staring in a week. I don't stay there but i think we see many other members here that do so just passing the info along. TOWING may add more to this later as I think this is his area.

Also spoke to the Abitibi lady and she says the trail from Domain is still a maybe. Forestry and Indian issues apparently the hot points.

While it was not the show of past its a start again of life getting back to normal here.

I remember talking to Diane & Dennis late last season and they had an Asian couple from QC area that were interested in buying the place. I wonder if the "deal" went through.  One thing is for certain. There will be BIG shoes to fill when Dennis is not around anymore. I'll miss seeing/talking with him but have a feeling we might cross paths again as he has a house/camp out in the woods not awful far from Repos. Diane is reportedly going to move to the south shore of Montreal to be near her daughter.

Yes, It was weeks away from happening then covid hit. Frank would have done well in my opinion.

Frank couldnt come up with the money. It's as simple and factual as that.

sure did not work out at Rogers Cabin when sold to Asians. 
 

please no hurt feelings 

Man Ihave some fond memories staying in Shawinigan and rippin out to Chez Rogers for the evening and back. On more than one occasion when we pulled in the place mid evening there was a "sea" of sleds out front and you could hardly get a parking spot. Then when they pushed us out the door and turned the lights out our sleds were the only ones left in the lot. No BS on that one !!

Stopped by there one summer while wife and I were vacationing. Here "Mrs Snowmaster" and I   Dont recall exact date but at least 15 yrs ago

Don't worry guys! I know the info is real but I have been told that Denis and his wife should still be there this next season to ensure a smooth ownership transition.  I had stopped by in june after Snowmaster had wrote me about rumours and had talked with Diane about the potential sold but nothing was done at this moment even they were in negotiation. She had told me that they were both in mind for continue to operate as usual this next winter, Denis had just leaved before my arriving for a FCMQ meeting for the weekend (he came back at royaume snowmobile club direction). I had confirmation that the deal was in serious way to happen a week ago and  had tried to seek more info about the new owners but just been told from trusty source that the info was real and that Denis and Diane should still be there this season... Will keep you inform when I know more...

I learned that the new Cabanon Auberge owners are named Michel and Mélissa and they should be present at this weekend snowmobile show in Quebec city at Cabanon booth. I won't be at the show myself and don't know if Iceman or somebody else not too far planned to go but it would be an opportunity to talk with them before the season opening.

Michel & Melissa dont sound Chinese. I was looking forward to some pork fried egg rolls after a long days ride.
