Chaleur region snowmobile season off to promising start

With a healthy supply of snow here already, and even more in the forecast, local stakeholders are optimistic for this year's snowmobile season.

Chaleur Snowmobile Club president Valmond Hachey says visitors from across the Maritimes and Quebec have already been taking advantage of the region's extensive trail system.

The only real complication this year, Hachey tells the Acadie-Nouvelle, is a five kilometre stretch on the Main Number 19 trail which is currently closed due to logging operations.

He says there's a slight detour on that section but adds the important thing is that there's lots of snow.
