PRESS RELEASE The snowmobile season is upon us


The snowmobile season is upon us:
the Fédération des clubs de motoneigistes du Québec invites snowmobilers to excise caution.

Terrebonne, December 18, 2019– Regions throughout Quebec will soon be in the midst of the next snowmobile season, we already have a few centimeters of snow on the ground in some regions! The wait has been long and we must be patient in order to have beautiful trails. We still need a few important elements before we can fully enjoy snowmobiling. We need for the ground to freeze and be covered with a fair amount of snow to cover the elements that may affect the safety of users. Furthermore, groomers need to get out and make several runs in order to adequately prepare the trails. Enthusiasm should not take precedence over your obligation to exercise caution. The Fédération des clubs de motoneigistes du Québec (FCMQ) reminds snowmobilers to exercise caution and awareness, particularly on bodies of water, notably by not riding on trails which have not yet been staked by club volunteers.

Club volunteers are currently hard at work preparing the trails for the coming season. Snowmobilers are thus advised to contact their local club in order to confirm the official opening of their trails. Whether it is via its Web site (, its Facebook page or its iMotoneige mobile app, the FCMQ provides various means for snowmobilers to verify trail conditions throughout the season.
