Most of the sums invested in the purchase of a trail permit are returned directly to the club
to fund the trail grooming operations. So if you buy where you ride,
your money improves the trails you ride most often.
“Operation of snowmobile on a Federation trail is strictly forbidden unless the operator has a prescribed trail permit.”
(FCMQ By-Laws, article 11)
Some planning recommendations :
- Never leave alone, whether you are novice or experienced
- Learn about the areas to visit and choose your destination
- Always decide which route to take depending on the time you have booked for your winter vacations. Search for addresses and phone numbers of hotels and restaurants in order to establish contacts
- Estimate the average distance you plan to travel each day
