Get your free temporary trail permit online

During the entire weekend, you will have access to 20,000 miles of marked and groomed trails, securely maintained by our 4,500 volunteers. Best of all, no trail permit will be required.

Québec's trail network is renowned worldwide for its high maintenance standard, its accessibility and its regional interconnectedness. Come experience for yourself the product of the tireless devotion and commitment of our thousands of dedicated volunteers, and you too will become a believer!

To enjoy our trails in complete safety during this weekend, we remind you to:

  • Have your free temporary trail permit on hand at all times (printed or accessible in your smart phone);

  • The owner of the snowmobile must hold a public liability insurance policy with a minimum coverage of $1,000,000 and have proof of said insurance in his possession;

  • All snowmobiles must be registered and licensed;

  • The minimum age to operate a snowmobile is 16. Under the new measures of the VHR Act, drivers aged between 16 and 17 must hold a valid driver's license in addition to the training certificate;

  • It is forbidden to have more passengers on the snowmobile than the capacity listed by the manufacturer;

  • Always keep right and stay on the trails.
