2018-2019 Shawinigan Snow Reports

Recommended Posts

Their web site says you need to buy another pass.  Also, look like they may have had a fire this summer.  Thanks for the information, there's enough FCMQ trails to ride without buying another pass...

First, in between the Lac & the orange mapped trails: Looking at the Onatchiway gas/relay/resto go around the corner to the right and you'll see a toll house to get into the private roads to the private chalets, see Mario and his babe @ the Zec Onatchiway clubhouse and pay a small daily fee and enjoy a loop of perfectly magnificent trails, mention Team Iceman for a free tour of the Groomer garage! Then you can punch out at the north side to get to Pip.

Playhard,

 

Thanks for the information.  As long as there is gas an food I think we'll check it out.

Your pics are from this year, correct? 

On their site it said $60 CAD per sled, but, if you leave the Zec before 23:30 on the day you go in they refund $30 CAD, so, maybe to ride some private trails is worth a few CAD's!!

Regards,

 

Fred

The gas and food is at Relais Onitchiway which is outside the Zec Onitchiway. Nothing in the ZEC.

I know this is Icemans reporting page but as of yesterday, heres what I saw.

From Shawinigan over to St. Raymond there is close to 4 feet of snow on the ground. Only in 2008 have I seen deeper snow there. Reggie and Pascal have a crew in today to clear the roof on the  low units at the Drakkar. Unless it gets very warm, or a big rain, this area should run deep into March.

Yes we left Reggies yesterday and there is a huge amount of snow in that area.  On our rides we saw some collapsed buildings and many people on the roofs clearing big buildings.
