YAY.

So. . . did your friend let you drive?

OH, PLEASE SAY YES!

Once you've driven one of those puppies, your dreams of PERFECT SNOW change forever!

:-)

I can actually HEAR that perfect roar in my dreams!

No. We were in the Winch cat, so he didn't want to risk it. He said if we were in a normal cat it would have been all good. I did however get to drive our snowmobile clubs PB a little bit last year. Super cool. Thing is like a tank! Ill see if I can scratch up a few pics.

Actually we got it donated and we did a lot of work on it. We struggle to keep it running every year.

Here is another one.

Our cabin behind it is a lease and we take care of it for the province for a song, but they won't give us a long term lease right now..



Grooming into the sunset.

NICE. . . do you have a garage for it?

We didn't, at Tamarack. Blanchard and Dit had to keep both of them running OUTSIDE at 8,600 feet in the shadow of the Sleeping Giant Herself, Mammoth Mountain. HUGE snow loads, mega wind, gnarly conditions. Guess all that jive just upped the pain threshold for later in life, eh?

:-)

SOOOOOOO. . . this club is for snowmobiling?

Do you let Nordic skiers play on your grooming?

Nope. No garage. She sits out in the elements at about 5500feet a lot. Unfortunately. Working on her in the snow sucks. It is what it is, so we try and bring her down to the parking lot for small maintenance and one of our members has a shop in town for the big stuff..

We have tenure to access our cabin via a public forest service road so yes, anyone can come play, not that we wouldn't allow them to if we could. We have people hike up all the time. We just aren't very fond of it when they break into the cabin...
