The Colorado cat crew had a great outing this weekend to ring in the new year.
we had 7 snowcats out and you could say we did some catskiing.

couple more pics.

We have been doing alittle more exploring this year and getting back to some areas that we haven't been in for several years. One thing we have all talked about is helping everyone on the forum understand that here in Colorado you can take you snowcat anywhere you can take a snowmobile.I have attached a map of Vail pass also here is a link to the Colorado snowmobile association state map. The only places you can't snowmobile/snowcat is the ski/snowboard terrain.
https://www.snowmobilecolo.com/conte...&club_id=45117

We hope to see some of you fellow snowcaters from others states this year.

Hybrid use is a place with a motorized route for skiing access. Your only allowed to snowmobile or snowcat on the road. Everything else is for the skiiers the snowmobiles and snowcats transport.

so route 8,9 are a motorized trail for the purpose of getting in there to ski?

So I would have to be carrying skis or boards to be on that route with a snowmobile?

I guess it is like the Wisconsin and Michigan interpretation of grooming snow.... as long as you are pulling something for the purpose......

I asked if a 2x4 was a groomer, officer propson stated " are you pulling it for the purpose of grooming?"

Yes.

well then your grooming he stated.

You don't have to have skiiers, just stay on the road if it's a hybrid route. The idea is that people can ski without the risk of a snowmobile collision. Other areas are just for hike and ski people. Some areas are just used by snowmobiles but the hike and ski people are allowed anywhere. No drag required in Colorado.

nothing like Wisconsin and Michigan this is the Rocky mountains

I'm just being funny not trying to be mean.

The only places you cant snowmobile or snowcat are the areas that are for skiing /snowboarding. This is to conserve the powder for skiers/snowboarders. The last thing you want is to being skiing glorious titty deep powder and hit a bomb hole from a snowcat lol. Also "if you lucky enough to find one" stay away from the 10 mountain huts as they are privately owned. The huts are available for rent tho. all the trails are already groomed by western states snowcats and they would prefer you leave the grooming to them. There are hundreds of miles of tails leading through some of the best snowcat terrain in the country here at Vail.

Colorado state registration for the year is $32
Vail pass is $6 a day per person or $40 for a season pass , kids are free
Montezuma is free

please feel free to ask more questions.

Hello, I just joined the group. We are super excited to come to the jamboree in March. I was wondering where everyone was staying? Is there a loose schedule of events? (Vail pass one day and/or Montezuma the next?

I am looking up group rates right now in Dillon and Silverthorn CO where the majority of people will be staying. Feel free to find you own hotel or if there are 10 or more we can qualify for a group rate.

The Jamboree will me March 8th,9th and 10th.

This will be a (loose) scheduled to allow freedom through out the Jamboree to the snowcat owners.
