I'm looking for a good start point near Saint Raymond for a group of 8-10 that is safe to leave our rigs. Roquemont  is already booked on our arrival date.

Thanks,Greg

You could also try the 4 Points just outside Quebec City

Would you be comfortable leaving rigs there?

They are making an enclosed parking area similar to the one at the Delta Saguenay.  I just confirmed that today with the new GM.  I met him  at the Quebec  snowmobile show which is where I am tonight.  They will become an advertiser here on QR.

We've been from the 4points many times , Great place and never been any issues for us . Even better with Bill's news .

Depending on when your going , the ice castle hotel is right on the property !

Ice Hotel had to move.  City owned the property, Ice Hotel was leasing 1/3rd of property.  City had opportunity to sell the property, sold it and new owner  wanted the entire  property for development.  I believe I heard that the hotel will run a shuttle to and from it but I'll confirm that today and post it.

I did a bit of research and it appears at least from the Hotel's map of attractions that the Ice Hotel will be off of the spur trail to Fassambault-sur-le-Lac

Ice Hotel can hold your helmets in a rack. But the shuttle from 4-Points is the ticket! It was was more comfy touring in "civilian" clothes. And best of all... With a designated driver I was able to hit the Ice Bar!

Looks like a cool joint for a base camp for sled families.

Scrolled down here for videos of what they're building:  http://www.valcartier.com/en/valcartier-hotel/  

How do we get them to provide sled friendly access?

Green pin is 4-Points Sheraton, yellow is the local to the east, red is to the west:

Try the Escapade in Shawinigan, that's where we launch from all the time. Secure pen for trucks and don t have to deal with the river

That's great news and they definitely have enough space for it! I drive pass Four Points twice a day and i always get jealous in the winter when i see sleds parked in the middle of the week since I usually only ride on weekends.

2 trail project phases announced. 

1. Reconnects 304 to 369 and McDonalds Stoneham and Lac Beauport. 

2.  Reconnects Villages Val Cartier with a completely new trail. 

I couldn't immediately discern if these are open this winter or coming soon although I could tell it states it's been a 2 year project.

The phase 1 will be for this year. 

For the Phase 2 with connection to Village Val Cartier that is not for this year. They need to get funding and will need to build 3 new bridges.
