We are a club of snowmobilers associated with the FCMQ in region 10- Eastern Townships.
Sherbrooke is the 5th largest city in the province of Quebec and the 19th in Canada. It is located approximately 160 kilometers from Montreal and 230 kilometers from the city of Quebec. Geographically, the Harfang de l’Estrie Snowmobile Club maintains close to 200 kilometers of trails covering the greater region of Sherbrooke.
It goes without saying that if you visit our beautiful region, chances are good people living in this area have witnessed the development and growth of a company from nearby Valcourt named Bombardier (now BRP). Expansion included installations in Sherbrooke which remain to this day. Among these, worth noting is the Advanced Technology Centre (CTA), a facility focused on research and innovation in advanced technologies for the power sports industry. The center uses one of our old trails to conduct tests on future vehicles that are in development.
If one day you come visit us during one of our meetings at the club garage which is located in the Bromptonville borough, you will see our volunteers sitting around the table.
The main strength of our club is our team of volunteers. Of course, we are very proud of our trails, but we are even more proud to be snowmobilers and to be a club which listens to its members.
A new snowmobile season is right around the corner and I, like you, am looking forward to plenty of snow! Allow me to introduce myself, Bertin Desrosiers, 2nd year as president of the Harfang de l’Estrie Snowmobile Club.
I have been passionate about snowmobiling for over 40 years. During this time, I have had the good fortune to not only crisscross surrounding club trails but to also explore all the snowmobile trails throughout the province of Quebec.
Who are we?
The Harfang de l’Estrie Snowmobile Club is made up of more than 40 volunteers who are also just as passionate about snowmobiling! It also consists of over 185 kilometers of trails, more than 600 individual rights of way to secure annually and 160 road crossings.
The Harfang de l’Estrie Snowmobile Club needs your help! How can you ensure our livelihood?
It’s important to remember that the territory covered by the Harfang de l’Estrie Snowmobile Club includes densely populated areas subject to year over year expansion. We work very hard each and every year to not lose established rights of way. As such, be sure to thank and respect the property owners who grant us access to their land.
· Stay on the trails
· Respect established speed limits
· Do not modify the mufflers on your snowmobiles, and
· Respect posted curfews.
Additionally, when purchasing your trail pass for the 2021-2022 season, please indicate our club # 537-10
I want to personally thank all our volunteers who work throughout the year to assure you the best possible experience during your snowmobile outings. If you have questions or comments, please feel free to reach out!

Loss of right of way
To keep you informed, updates to trail conditions are published on this site as quickly as possible. However a change in temperature or some other unexpected event could cause a rapid deterioration in trail conditions. Additionally, within any given section of a trail, it is possible that a portion will not be at the same quality level as the rest of the trail. For this reason it is important to adjust your riding style to the trail conditions you encounter. The club and its volunteers all do their most to provide the best possible trail conditions throughout the network but unfortunately there are circumstances beyond everyone’s control. Please ride responsibly.
