Saguenay Trail Conditions for Xmas Week

Recommended Posts

Every October I book hotels from the UP of Michigan to Quebec for Xmas week in hopes to find somewhere with good early season conditions for the first trip of the season. This year it is not looking too good. I did book a room at the Delta and have been watching the trail condition reports. Not too many updates the past several days. Anyone know how things held up with the warm temps and rain?

It's a 15-hour trailer for us and don't mind chasing the snow but prefer not to spend a week in marginal conditions.

Thanks in advance!

We were in the area last week pre rain/warm up, it was marginal then.

I think your best bet now is Abitibi region. Shorter drive and from what I have read they did not get rain.

Yes-we're booked @ Forestel in Val D'Or from the 29th. till Jan.2-I've never been let down by going to Abitibi in over 20 years of riding up there!

Thanks for the thread.  I have reservations at The Delta as well.  Thinking of canceling.  Supposed to head up the 26th with my son.  I did see they got 5” up on Mont Valin yesterday.  Still hopeful.  Thanks to anyone who can provide accurate updates.

Latest reports say trails are decent but no snow on the trails through town. I'm thinking it will be hard to get from the Delta to the trails without trailering.

As of a few days ago most trails appear closed in the Val D'Or area.

I think they're late on the updates because of Xmas + another 6-8" forecast for Thur./Fri.!

That doesn’t help me too much.... it’s a 15 hour drive for me from Pittsburgh to Saguenay. My plan was to leave Wednesday. 

I have been watching the Monts Valin cam. It’s looked good for a while but can be very different down below.

Looks like Val D'Or goes above freezing Fri. now too; so have booked Cochrane-all neige/staying below freezing!
