Le Valinouët, a true paradise for snowmobilers

The trails at Le Valinouët are accessible very early in the season from the ski chalet with direct access to the Trans-Quebec No. 93 and the trails of the Caribou-Conscripts snowmobiling club. These trails are located outside the territory of the Parc National des Monts-Valin.

Our large chalet offers all the amenities a snowmobiler can imagine. Our restaurant-pub offers a warm atmosphere and a delectable cuisine, open seven days a week.

A safe snowmobile parking is available in front of the restaurant, along with a car parking and a magnificent terrain for off-trail fans.

Snowmobile rentals and lodging are also available on-site at Passion Québec.

For trail conditions, visit: Club Caribou-Conscripts


A warm and friendly atmosphere, and fine cuisine await you, all with a breathtaking view of the mountain.

The resto-pub is also a snowmobile stopover with a safe parking for snowmobiles. You can now relax without worry.
