  1. You may have already heard or know, the demand for powersports equipment is off the chart. COVID is preventing people from traveling to winter destinations who are now looking for other winter time fun. Add that to the raw material shortages and you'll notice huge price increases/shortages due to increase in demand. Used trailers are going for record pricing as with new. Ontario trailer retailers are no longer guaranteeing pricing on ordered trailers as the manufacturers are not holding their prices. I know an owner of a big dealer near London an these are unprecedented times. M
  2. I'll be ordering a new Neo enclosed this spring, likely from Bluewater. Maybe we should post a thread and see if we can get a better deal with a group buy. Thoughts? P.
  3. Our last ride of the season today, may the most of it by riding hard and really enjoying the sport. We staged at the Paudash Trailblazers clubhouse and went north to the E108 and through the park to LSP for fuel. Then back south with a lunch stop at the Algonquin for some delicious food and beverages. Conditions on the E were fantastic, everything else was pretty bumpy but still very rid-able. Overall a great day for a great sport! p.
  4. Looking for parking around Harcourt, large enough for a couple of large trailers. Any recommendations? TIA< P.

    Never stayed but was there for lunch and fuel. Really popular. One Saturday there was over 400 sleds in the parking lot. Look them up on GOogle, there are many reviews, several are recent and share when you get back.
  6. Isn't it interesting that all of the trails in this HR just went yellow? All of them. Even where the same trail enters another HR which shows green. Any thoughts on that?
  7. I wear a Klim keweenaw jacket and a Klim Klimate bibs and I'm never cold, even in -25. Great quality, can be purchased on a discount if you look around (new, non current) and the bibs are available in short, reg, and tall versions. As i'm 5'5", this is important. actually, the climate bibs are extremely warm. For the jacket, in colder temps I wear a 2.0 base layer and mid layer. I'm 57 In addition, my wife wears a FXR Renegade jacket with the removable liner. She likes it but the liner is only a vest and her arms get a touch cool at times.
  8. Can't believe my eyes! Hope its not a glitch with the software..lol
  9. Thank you! I feel compelled to share this one for sure! Well i'm an avid cook with some culinary training. We were not expecting fine dining, just a good hearty meal when we returned and I know good and simple food is easy to do. I also prefer a hot breakfast and when we booked it was sold as "we deliver your breakfast right to your chalet." Very surprising considering the rates and reputation. The chef, or shall I say cook, should be ashamed. And in PQ of all places, thats one reason we go (is for the food).
  10. Booked one of the small luxury chalets at La Bannik for just under a week and here are our thoughts: Cottage, albeit a tad small was very nice and clean, Everything worked and your own personal hot tub is awesome. Nice propane fireplace and heated floors was a nice reception when we got back from a day on the trails. Only negative was the size and lack of cooking abilities other than a microwave and toaster oven. They do offer a cottage with a full kitchen but its 2 bedrooms and a loft. Better for a family and of course, more expensive. The food (Dinner) - We opted for
  11. Spent the better part of the week at La Bannik and enjoyed some well deserved time off with the Mrs. Conditions were great considering the snow accumulation is way below average for the area. Weather was very crisp in the morning, -25 before wind chill every day. Many days were sunny. Lovely area but not as nice as the Laurentides which has more elevation changes and woodlands. Too much open field running around VM for our liking. Also didn't see many on the trails at all, most in 1 day was 6 other riders! Check out my Food and Lodging report in that forum.
  12. I'll be posting a report on food and lodging when I get back.
  13. While heading up to Ville Marie for a week of sledding I noticed that the trails around North Bay were groomed and were being used. Started to think that this is just a farce to keep the southern citiots away.. I've always loved the run between South River and Point a Baril so I may give them a look on the way back to KW. As there are a large number of yellow and green trails available province wide, the HR should open the trails anyways to at least give the locals somewhere to ride. P.
  14. Yea don't understand those folks who don't clean up after themselves. Had a buddy do it and I reamed him out. Like, REALLY?
