The 2018 Colorado Snowcat Jamboree!!
March 16th-18th at Vail and Montezuma CO

This is a 3 day event starting on Friday the 16th at Vail pass. We will be meeting early around 7-730am at the trail heads then heading up to the saddle of Ptarmigan meeting there around 10am. We will do catskiing runs on the front face of ptarmigan and Machine Gun ridge until we can all get to the saddle for a meet and greet/photo. 12pm will be lunch. For lunch everyone is welcome to bring anything to through on the grill, or whatever you would like. I’ll bring more than enough hotdogs and burgers to feed everyone but to each his own. Kegs of beer will be available all day. This is all no charge. We are here to have fun! The second half of the day will be spent exploring all around ptarmigan and catskiing. We will have ski/snowboard competition with Prizes ! Yes Prizes! Spacecraft, Tincup whisky, Thuggie and other event sponsors will be providing tons of swag for the event to hand out as winning prizes. After the competition we will load up at the end of the day. Those who are up for dinner and drinks can meet at the Dillon dam brewery afterwards.

March 17TH Saturday Vail again
We will be meeting at the same time 7-730am at the trail heads then heading up to the saddle of Ptarmigan meeting there around 10am. We will do catskiing runs on the front face of ptarmigan and Machine Gun ridge until we can all get to the saddle. 12pm will be lunch. After lunch we will head over to shrine bowl. The rest of the afternoon will be a number of snowcat events with Prizes. We will have a hill climb completion on both deep powder and hardpack snow. Also a snowcat drag race with prelims, finals and prizes.


March 18th Sunday at Montezuma AKA Little Alaska .
Montuzuam is located next to another world class resort (Keystone)
We will all meet in the back of zuam at 8am in deer Creek (just drive all the way to the end of Montezuma rd). From the lot we will head back top deer creek and into the big bowl . This day will be a free for all trip to go wherever you want. This is going to be a high altitude paly ground right at tree line and above. Serval 14,000+ft peaks line this area like Torey’s peak. From the bowl we can ascend the ridge to summit several peaks. There will also be catskiing available all day and an end of the day raffle for something special.


















Vail is $5 for a day pass

Here is a link to check out last year’s event to get an idea of what you’re in for.
http://www.forumsforums.com/3_9/show...ht=vail&page=9

For lodging I would suggest Comfort Suites. 276 Dillon Ridge Rd, Dillon, CO 80435 (970) 513-0300
Or
La Quinta Inn & Suites. 560 Silverthorne Ln, Silverthorne, CO 80498 laquintasilverthornesummitcounty.com (970) 468-6200

If you are coming Vail Pass trail head Milemarker 190 Interstate 70, Vail, CO 81657. Here is a map link to that point.
https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer...991108897&z=17
If you want to come to the camp hale side and meet at the saddle of ptarmigan you would be staying in red cliff or Nova guides have huts available. That group will be meeting at the camp hale trail head at this link. There will also be a local by the name of Johnny (mother Tucker) to greet at the camp hale side.
https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer...690865519&z=17
Anyone thinking of coming from out of state here is a link to register your cat for use on public land in Colorado its $35 and is good for the whole year. You just need proof of ownership (hand written bill of sale).

Here is some the link to info about Vail pass and the trail system

Thanks Aaron. Does anyone happen to know if the bridge over the river at Camp Hale is full width? (i.e. able to accommodate an 8.5 ft cat?). I glanced over at it as I drove by on Hwy 24 yesterday and it looked narrow even for a single lane bridge.

I've been working on my SkiDozer 302, really want to get the beast out. I need some help wiring up the batteries and firing up the Cummins for the first time. The 10th or 11th at my shop in Arvada if anyone is interested... If it does not make it for the Jamb I'll be 'stuck' running Aaron's Trooper...
Will continue the effort to get it out sooner or later this season.

Dave I believe that the bridge is 12ft wide.

Assume you mean the steel bridge east of the Camp Hale pull off (parking area). Un less they have replaced it recently, it was definitely plenty wide enough for 10' cats a few years ago. Another route over the river, is to follow the river north from that bridge a short distance where the road from Pando crosses the river (a very wide culvert crossing here) and east heads directly up Resolution Road to Vail Pass over Ptarmigan Pass.
