Hi,
I am new here....looks like a great site.

A group of us booked time off to head to Quebec this coming weekend.Sleds are gassed up and ready to load on the trailer.
Normally we leave from Cross Point...and do the Gaspe Bay.

Can anyone tell me if it is possible to get from Cross Point to Amqui?

If need be...we could base out of Amqui and do short day trips....we just want to sled!

Any info would be great....

Thanks.....uggg

Guess we will not get our trip in.We thought of driving to Matane and taking the ferry to the other side,but looks like there is no snow there either.

I did check the forecast for the next few days looks like you might get some snow on Monday.

Thanks very much for your help.

What is the P o g thread?

Go to Mt Valin and hed to Zec Martins Private trail system. Just got back, 3 day pass was $35 and worth every penny. They have a ton of snow, no traffic and perfectly groomed trails.

Do your self a favor and take the sleds off the trailer and wait. The Gaspe has been classed in the top three riding areas in North America. Don't rush yourself and go before the conditions are good, and they will be good within 2 wks ( my guess). I can give you some tips on your Gaspe excursion if you want, I have done it several times.

Groomer...thanks VERY much.....!!!!!!!!!
I checked the weather and looks like 10 cms of snow are possible for you tomorrow.I will hope for that for sure.

We are going to call the Yammi dealer in Cross Point and see later in the week if it is possible to get from Cross Point to Amqui.

Looks like your weather is going to get colder.

It was VERY kind of you to take the pics....we owe you a beer,when we finally get to Amqui!

Do you have contact information for the zone? Where do you enter it? Jalobert?

Good places to stay? Any info appreciated.

Groomer....saw the snow predictions for your area...10-15 cms for tomorrow.....crossing my fingers that I have to buy you a beer!
All year long I look forward to our trips to the Gaspe...my brother and his wife have been going for ten years..we have been going for the past four years.One of my fav runs is from Cross Point to Amqui...... I will keep a look out for the GROOMER now.
Hope I do not bother you to much but would like to stay in touch this week.My brother is going to call the Yami dealer on Tuesday and see how things are in Cross Point.
Keep me posted if you get any snow....if you do a snow dance I will get you dinner and as many beers as you wish!
