(No) snowmobiling in the Monts Valin

Mt Valins, Saguenay (by Marika Wheeler).JPGOne of the main attractions for snowmobilers in the Saguenay is the Monts Valin area. But a few years ago, there was a big disagreement between a local snowmobile club and the provincial park in the area. The snowmobilers lost access to the park - and they weren't happy about it. 

Ultimately they resolved the problem, though, and their example could provide a model for other such negotiations in Quebec.
