View Full Version : Trip to Hunter Mtn New York

Monday and Tuesday of this week I took a Ski Racing Clinic at Hunter Mtn New York about 7 hours from Western Maryland. Low and behold walking across the area I ran across a nice Snow Trac. No idea what they use it for. I emailed them but no response yet. They are billed the snowmaking capital of the world but they had a ton of snow cats.

And if you want to make snow in your back yard you definately need this snowcat.

That is a beautiful Snow Trac .... but somethings different about it . Are the fenders extended??? I like the look .:cool2:

The first photos in the thread are of a SnowMaster, or TracMaster, not a SnowTrac. Still Activ, but with wider tracks with more aggessive grousers.
Clean lookin' cat!

The fenders are bigger too.

As "aksnocat" points out, that is a Snow Master version of the Snow Trac. It has longer tracks (one extra bogey wheel) and wider tracks (5 belts instead of 3). The Snow Masters came in several configurations. This one is a tall cab (which means it is probably a newer unit) with a few extra inches of headroom. It also has full width side fenders that run all the way to the back, other versions had full width fenders only in the front but they tapered to standard width near the front of the cabin. This also has the optional rear extentions over the rear of the tracks to help keep the snow from piling up on the back of the machine. A Snow Trac's tracks do not extend past the back of the cabin, but on this Snow Master you can clearly see the tracks extend beyond the rear of the cabin and that is the reason for the rear extentions.
Lyndon's Snow Master, which was recently sold to Mtntopper, is a very similar version of this unit.
