The Fédération des clubs de motoneigistes du Québec welcomes the 2020-2021 season with enthusiasm


Terrebonne, October 1st, 2020 - The Fédération des clubs de motoneigistes du Québec (FCMQ) is proud to announce the beginning of its 100% online trail permit sale for a second consecutive year. The goal of this procedure is still to lighten the club volunteers work load and to make the purchase of trail permits faster and more convenient for members. Through this system, volunteers can thus devote the maximum of their time to trail maintenance, a colossal task for volunteers. In addition, online purchases allow snowmobilers to purchase their trail permit seven (7) days a week, 24 hours a day without having to leave home. Snowmobilers can therefore immediately acquire their trail permit with a $1,000,000 civil liability insurance from Intact Insurance, the official insurer of the FCMQ*.

The current health crisis has forced the FCMQ board of directors to overlook its operations in order to face these unprecedented times. Several establishments and in-trail procedures managed by club volunteers will be overlooked in order to respect Public Health guidelines. Information provided by the government of Quebec, stipulates that we will not be faced with a second COVID-19 related provincial closure, leading the board of directors to see the upcoming season with much enthusiasm, placing aside any potential plan. In the event of regional closures, please be assured that snowmobile member contributions will be used for trail network improvement and maintenance during this time.


A new feature has been implemented this year!

In order to satisfy our customers, we wish to provide a certain latitude when purchasing a daily trail permit.
As you know, unforeseen events can compromise your riding date.

The FCMQ has revised its procedures concerning the sale of your daily trail permit.

Therefore, you have up to 72 hours prior to your riding date to make a change. Details at
