PRESS RELEASE 

Confinement December 17, 2020 to January 11, 2021:
Message from the Quebec Federation of Snowmobile Clubs

Terrebonne, December 16, 2020 - As we approach the official opening of the snowmobile season, we understand the dismay that the announcement of a new confinement brings. We are all facing a situation of uncertainty and our winter activity is no exception. As we have much more information and knowledge about the health measures needed to mitigate the spread of coronavirus, the clubs will be able to carry out effective health management of our trail network as well as of the unserved relays and shelters.

We must nevertheless be aware of the importance of adapting the practice of snowmobiling to the prevailing conditions and that it is up to each snowmobiler to ensure that his or her itinerary is safe and not to make non-essential inter-regional trips. We must be even more demanding of each and every one of us, our organizations and our volunteers if we wish to continue our operations while ensuring everyone's safety.

Member Services

Service to our members and clubs remains our priority and we are here to support you and answer all your questions related to the COVID-19 crisis or the operation of your club. We have made many improvements to the organization during the previous confinement and we remain on duty to assist and support you. Our procedures already in place will once again allow us to get through the potential difficulties that lie ahead in the coming weeks.

Keep moving forward

We have had the strength as a federation, to get through a first confinement through teamwork and the union of our forces, so we are continuing on our way. Together, we have the capacity to adapt and determination that allows us to find solutions in order to achieve our goals.

Finally, let's pursue our passion, work and volunteerism in order to bring a little pleasure to this confinement during the holiday season. Also take the time to take care of yourself and your loved ones during this hectic time.
