It’s no coincidence that the snowmobile was invented in Québec. With our incredible landscapes, seascapes, forests, mountains and winter marvels accessible only by snowmobile – well, where else could it have been dreamt up?
Québec gets an average of 312 cm (more than 10 feet) of snow per year. Some regions even see up to 700 cm (23 feet). That’s more snow than Alaska, Vermont and Wyoming combined!
You can count on the snow, and what’s more, you can count on the sun, all winter long. What’s the best part of Québec’s 33,500 km (20,500 miles) of snowmobile trails, besides the fact that that’s enough to get you from New York to San Francisco eight times? They’re interconnected. Imagine the entire province spread out before you, waiting for you to decide which region to explore first:
* Abitibi‐Temiscamingue, rated the number one snowmobile destination in North America (Supertrax International, 2011 and 2012)
* The Laurentians, birthplace of the first snowmobile club in the world
* Charlevoix, Québec City & Area and Saguenay–Lac‐Saint‐Jean, with their exceptional conditions and up to 183 cm (six feet) of natural snowfall
* Lanaudière and Mauricie, with their endless choice of circuits and outstanding trail conditions
* Gaspésie, Bas‐Saint‐Laurent, Côte-Nord–Manicouagan and Côte-Nord–Duplessis, with their breathtaking scenery between sea and mountains
* Chaudière‐Appalaches and Centre‐du‐Québec, with their multiple-day loops.
There’s so much to do and see in Québec after an exhilarating snowmobile ride. Enjoy the lights and excitement of the big city or the quiet cultural charm of a small town.
Savour the local cuisine: nothing chases the cold away like a warm greeting and some fine dining! Then, sleep soundly at a fancy shack, a rustic chalet in the woods, a luxurious ice hotel, or even snuggled up in a good old‐fashioned igloo.
You’ll always get a warm welcome from Québecers. We can’t wait to have you chez nous, that is, in our home, among us.
