A Marathon

If your idea of the ultimate snowmobile trip is one where the days are spent aggressively carving up the world’s best trail system and nights enjoying a great dinner and a beer with new friends, this tour is for you. The Big Bore Tour is a long distance trip without equal, a six day snowmobiling marathon where the same trail is never covered twice.

The experience of riding seventy miles without stopping for a road crossing or encountering another rider can be thrilling. Lunch is served at a fully staffed “relais” located far enough into the park that the electricity is generated on site and the employees sleep there for weeks at a time. If all goes as planned, by late afternoon we are within striking distance of the night’s destination.

A long distance trip is by its very nature a significant accomplishment when completed. Our approach involves maximizing the experience while minimizing the risk. In this effort, there is no substitute for experience. We have learned many lessons over the years, all of which directly impact the way in which we conduct our trips. Whether it’s a satellite communication to ask for assistance or having a network of preferred service providers to rely upon, our experience in long distance touring makes a significant difference.

Trail Network

Leaving well-traveled routes and marginal conditions behind, every mile forward is a new adventure. For an authentic experience, this tour starts from Saint-Michel-Des-Saints and saddlebags over 200 miles to comfortable outfitter lodging each night. With a hot shower, warm bed, and friendly bartender, each destination allows the night to unfold with plenty of laughs and stories.

The formula of the Big Bore is the constant testing of driver and machine, and the diverse terrain of this region always delivers. With an abundance of trail types and variety, there is a constant trail transition from open landscapes for throttle down riding to tighter wooded terrain where the maneuverability of the sled shines. A favorite highlight of this trip is an 80 mile stretch of trail dubbed Piston Alley, where sleds can be tested and the thrill of these great machines is realized.

In the regions of Quebec that we ride, the season typically runs from early January through mid-March. The long season means plenty of snow for grooming, helping to create the world’s best trail system. Another benefit to consistent snow conditions is the ability to make long range plans to ride. The two hundred clubs do a fantastic job of consistently grooming and maintaining this vast trail system.

The Experience

Many friendships have been established on our trips. As one may expect, pranks and jokes are played from time to time and make for great memories and stories.

Our trips are structured so that the riding capabilities of our clients are closely matched. This is critical to developing a group that works well together. We find that groups of six riders per one guide offer the best experience. Our trips are also designed to be interactive, meaning you will have input on how the trip is conducted. You will never feel as though you are merely “following the leader.”

If your sled is not up for a long trip, consider renting a current year Ski-doo snowmobile. Our rental sleds come with a warm suit, helmet and trail permit. Power choices range from 60 - 165 horsepower.
