Mxz 7000 , I am running Simmons skis on that Freeride. Enjoy them, a good all around ski for a variety of riding conditions.  Today was a mix of marginal snow cover to adequate snow cover. A good 180 mile plus ...ride. We are all getting adjusted to the 850s. Really like them. Also many of us got to try the new Polaris titan, a definite Skidoo expedition challenger.  It feels like a heavier, robust, Ski Doo  Freeride. 

 

On the Labrieville rd, a big “dog” track kept us wondering,   ..just how big he was!

Today we road towards Labrieville, tomorrow is a run towards Escoumin.  Lots of darting and weaving😉

Which Gen would those skis be RR?

I have a pair of Gen 1s, worked Réal well on my RX1 back in '04 but were too squirrelly on the Apex so they were archived. Thinking of putting them in action on the Enduro. The guy in your group with the Enduro, I noticed Simmons up front, did he have to swap the spindles to put them on?

Hi Ice, it sure does seem good back on the snow, hope a good snow crop comes soon for everyone!

TB, sure wish you guys were here with us, seemed like just a bit ago we were here riding the same areas with you guys.

800 Steve, look us up when you get here, enjoy the ride

yesterday, as I had posted yesterday, we went to Escoumin via the Pelchat trail. Great going over over this way with mostly good snow cover, particularly the closer we got towards the new   Escounin Relais. 

 

The club house came out awesome., we ended up with a bit over 200 miles yesterday, the trail 93 towards Sacre Coure, though not groomed, was awesome as well. 

More riding today, back over in that area, maybe, head towards Forestville.

As Backcountry has reported and certainly no different than any other year, we are getting preseason riding conditions. With several hundred miles of groomed trails in the area, to streams that are not frozen, to sled breakdowns and great Backcountry woods road running.  Each day gives us a new experiences.

Early rider, 1500 HD, Backcountry and I are having a great time. We have had to scrounge for a reliable internet connection so patchy reporting has been the norm. 

8” forecast for tomorrow here, so great powder riding we hope for the end of our trip!

 

best regards RR5CE1D643-6808-4DB1-8D60-B419FEC2BB3A.thumb.jpeg.ef56f0eccea1bd47af9b63e108bd4d92.jpeg3D9B3235-3A22-483A-9481-9D272F3BCEC2.jpeg.33fe18eb10fb527d5dec7b1ad67eea70.jpegD4F4B779-3055-4954-96DD-1A195E9D0D26.jpeg.8b170e0f272006df3525ef2662673876.jpeg573E8BEF-3DDE-460C-B02C-1CC0E6BBE191.thumb.jpeg.3abb19a82b77999037f90721600e2b45.jpeg3528102E-6217-4CF3-B0CB-0BEE926CC71F.thumb.jpeg.ece78a46aaca560f3e4a94e10cfbce37.jpeg

Rode 240 miles yesterday from ski area to Escomins club house and some side trails, mostly good, looks like about a foot of new snow in the Monts today. Grooming is starting to look good. Very nice for this early in the season. Calling for rain around the Delta today. Locals have been riding the lowlands, but no grooming yet .Had interesting ride back from Escomins, water in gas, thought we were going to tow 2 of the sleds, but made it back ok.

It snowed most of the day yesterday, probably 6 to 8” of new snow, some sleet last night. Overall a fun day bush wacking. This is a 2 mile long worm hole that connects two roads up near the Pipmuacan reservoir.  A fun tactical ride. 

 

We we had tried to get to Forestville the day before but came up short on gas and trail conditions. We are planning a repeat of that ride today, only a little different route

We are generally happy with the gen 4 Freeride. But need to work on gearing for our style of riding. We are hoping for better fuel mileage and top end once we do that.

Best regards

 

RR
