Friendly Advice for the 23/24 Season

  • Construction is underway at the Trois-Rivières airport: make sure that parking is indeed open for leaving vehicles and trailers.
  • The Saint-Maurice River: do not take for granted that it is always safe to ride! The conditions of the last two winters have almost completely hindered snowmobilers from using it.
