Hi Qcriders!!

More or less 25% of the clubs of Chaudière-Appalaches will groome tonight. I saw two of them tonight!! :yahoo:

They annonce 15 to 25 cm on friday! :good:

I just talked with three club president and they all say that Sunday, their paths will be opened. So I imagine it will be so for the rest of de Province of Quebec!

For our part, we wil gromme this weekend & we will install the signs. :good:

We'll start with the TQ5, TQ35 then make the side as the R551, R547 and so on.

I will keeps you informed of the developments.

All the best!

We have groomed last night and probably groome tonight too.

The TQ35 and the 549 and 547.

So St-Gervais, St-Lazard, St-Damien, Buckland, ST-Raphael.

Quality of 35: Excellent for the start of the season.

Quality of 549 and 547: Good to bad. Bad in the woods. There are a lot of bumps and a lack of snow.

The TQ5 side St-Vallier was open today from the Club.

Quality of 5: Good to bad. Lack of snow in some places in fields and woods.

The 3 / 4 trails were groomed. Not the 551 .... but I think this will be done tonight.

In photos:

and what about those who do not pay their trail pass.... :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

All the best!

HI Qcriders!!

Well, what can I say!? :cray:

I ride 95 km today....& it was very bad. :wacko:

The TQ35 is on ice.....70% of the time.....

The R547 & R549... lack of snow in the wood, lots of bump.

The fields are on plowing....( i'm not sure of this in english)

Same thing for the 551 et the TQ5 Around Montmagny!

The 55 from St-Magloire to St-Sabine... lack of snow in the wood, lots of bump.

If you pass by the 549, the trail is close 1 mile from the jonction to go on the 547 by The MASSIF DU SUD.

The trail is close because we didin't have enought snow to cover the river. You can pass but at your own risk.

Be careful :good:

Ho!! BTW

The trail to go see the GLACIER is closed. We lost the right of way the go see them! :sad:

HOpe to have some snow soooooooon!! :clapping:

All the best!

I will Keep you update for sure...in 24hrs.

No SB 2006 for a bit - miss your updates and trail info - planning a trip your way - assuming everything good (FCMQ) but looking for closures and trail problems
