Nestled in Québec’s Eastern Townships, Valcourt has a long and rich history in the powersports industry, beginning in 1942 when Joseph-Armand Bombardier manufactured the Auto-Neige Bombardier, the first tracked vehicle designed to travel over snow. Assembly, engineering (mechanical, electronic, electric, mecha-tronics), procurement, strategic purchasing, quality assurance, laboratory and physical testing, technical services all take place at BRP, Valcourt.
BRP’s 2015 Ski-Doo MXZx 600RS builds on its strong chassis performance from 2014 by refining the engine and drive systems for better power delivery and even better overall durability.
We are SO ready for winter…thank goodness the Hay Days event in Minn. is just around the corner! If you’re one of the thousands sledders heading to North Branch to get your season started, we are anxious to see you in the Ski-Doo compound.
The centerpiece is the 2015 Ski-Doo sleds, of course. But there’s tons of other stuff to do, like meet top racers, chat with our technical service guys, see – and even buy – new accessories and way more.
