Jim VT,

if you bought a crane, you too, could get your Snow Trac to the top of the mountain...

The military Snow Tracs, used by the Brits, had helicopter hooks on them so they could be air lifted to remote locations.

One of our former members, with whom I am still in regular contact, has an original Royal Marines Snow Trac as well as a civilian unit. I've visited and inspected both at her home in Wales, UK. She also has an original Snow Trac military trailer to haul a Snow Trac overland.

The Royal Marine units are pretty rare, the largest collection of them is sitting in a ship's hold on the bottom of the Atlantic off the Falkland Islands.

Don could use that chopper to get that unused snow trac out of that military bunker.
