The kids where up bright and early ready to snowcat!
Wow what a second day it was! We gave away over 60 tshirts,45 hats,120 stickers, lots of alcohol,edibles and as much as you can eat or drink. Got to love Colorado ! The freighter stayed out all night long antarctic style and partied. 10th mountain and Tincup where back out with more cases of whisky. The tucker Terra 1600 brought more people up from camp hale.I tried to get everyone to the to of ptarmigan to take a group photo but less then half made it lol. Most cats where off cats skiing and having fun exploring mountain tops some had to go back to the parking lot and pick other guest up. Tory Nottingham being the good mommy she is had the kids gather kindling so that they could take turns playing on the kids snowmobiles and timbersleds. Ashley Tucker gathered full trees with the Prinoth trooper.

tons of catsking all day , alittle windy at the top.
3 Prinoth troopers attended the even.

my old 1342 Tucker made it out with passenger cab finished , just needs paint. That kind of made my day to see the cat that I rebelted myself running like a champ.
more pics of the trailer we hauled out with homemade skis.

Mother tucker (johnny) brought out some hoof tequila from Vail for everyone to try. He broke and axle at the end of the day. Johnny made a bush fix and bolted a jig onto the front pontoons limiters to keep the broken axle from allowing the pontoon to fall off , worked great ! After that was fixed the cat would not start due to the rats nest of wires that the Thief had entangled. Luckily the Nottingham step in with their mechanic and test light. We got the mother tucker out that night but it was late.

No one can ever say that Colorado doesn't know how to throw an epic party.

Really sounds like a blast and the area looks awesome. That hoof receptacle looks like it could hurt in the morning.

Day 3 of the Colorado Snowcat Jamboree Montezuma... (aka Little Alaska)

Montezuma is where the BIG boys come to play. Brian busted trail early in the morning with the Prinoth HD Trooper. Even after Brian tracked it out it was quit the sidehill most of the way in. 4 died hard snowcats made it to the bowl.John linder in his Prinoth trooper,Brain Scarborough in my Prinoth HD trooper, Travis & Torry Nottingham in their 1544 Tucker and The Tuckers with full crew in the Freighter.The day consisted of lots of hill climbs and Cat skiing couloir's. We all had bacon wrapped lobster tail as is tradition on the third day with chevichie from Travis 5 start chef friend. I guess he owns several restaurants in Vail. It was a great day for us..... Others not so much

We ended up being First Response that day to a snowmobile Hill Climb accident. We were all gathered around the fire when we heard the Roar of a nice skidoo powder sled Buzz past us. At the time we didn't know but the female rider was heading for the top of the cornice via one of the couloir's . She almost made it! At the very top she lost control when her shoulder came out of socket. We all watch this with deep anticipation of what was going to happen. Her sled rolled over top of her and dragged her towards a cliff. She was able to stop herself right before she drooped over the cliff. Her sled toppled over the edge Landing with a big crunch then cascading to the bottom of the bowl.The women's husband went around to the top and the proceeded down towards her. I was able to meet them about three quarters of the way up and bring them a sled. The woman's husband and me walked her down the slope step by step until we were met by another group that took over the strenuous activity. the Lady pulled her arm out of the socket and when the sled went over her it broke two of The Wing Bones on her spine. We were able to get her loaded up in Travis's cat and her kids loaded up in John's Prinoth. They got out and made it to the hospital safe. She posted this on the Colorado snowcat jamborees page.

' Thank you for pulling me and my boys off the mountain yesterday!! Don't know what we would have done without your help and the cats. Feeling blessed that you were out there yesterday! Shoulder is back in and the rest will heal up. Gunnar loved the snowcat ride.'

Exclamation Re: Colorado Snowcat Jamboree !!!!

Vail is always the best, especially after 16in of fresh.

Also on a serious note our Rottweiler broke off a cournus at the highest peak on Machine gun ridge. I can believe he even survived the 200ft fall and avalanche into no mans land. One heck of a dog! He had to hike out 2-3 miles just to avoid the 40ft cournus and ascend the mountain that he fell off of. You can see his tracks out of the avalanche in on pic.
