Great to see the kids enjoying the winter. Get yourself a ORPS deep snow kit for the kitty cat and reverse the track. Makes it a whole different experience. Also comes with new spindles to make it wider.

Night and Day difference!

Great thread and great photos!

Well below average snowfall in Utah as well. I understand a recent storm stayed north and dumped 60" or so in Montana.

Went cat skiing on Vail pass today. Got about 7 laps in today. Lots of snow to be ridden. Had two new people in our group. Rescued two snowmobiles. Drove in some snow so deep I was pushing snow with the front of the cat. Ran into some other cats at the end of the day. It took a lot of work to get out today. My check engine light had come on last trip and it had so many codes. Mostly the computer was upset because the engine isn't in a truck anymore. The big issue was that I had a bad coil and was experiencing a miss fire. Also my manifold needed tightening.

Sorry it's sideways but this was the super deep snow that we got into.

Awesome pictures and great snow! Crazy weather on the east coast. Crazy cold for two weeks and then two days at 60 W/ rain wiped out 12”+ of snow. High temp today was 61 at 1am and by noon down to 25.

Here are a couple more from yesterday. Had a great time as usual. Can't wait till we can get back on top of ptarmigan and back up into boss basin again! Would also love to give lime creek a shot one day. That face above the road looked primo (when we scoped it on our first outing on Vail pass with the road side pillows) even if you do have to hike it.

Nice guys! Way jealous here. I just woke up to about 4" of powder, making for a whopping 8" total for the season!

I know this is a snowcat forum, but my vote is for more skiing photos.

We will have some pics of skiing on this thread eventually. I haven't brought my camera stuff lately as I just want us to get a bunch of laps without the hassle of bringing all that stuff (mostly due to space even though we haven't been at full capacity). Often seems like a bit of a nucance, especially if I need to have 2 packs on my lap or worse when I need to get out without the cat. Canadian doubles (one each side of a snowmobile) with 2 packs (one full of heavy camera gear), a pair of snowshoes, poles and a snowboard in a pinch when we had to leave the cat over night last year was no fun, thought better than walking or slogging out.

I have had a problem of the heat from the exhaust pipe/ muffler raising heck with the window glass if the outside air temp is not cold and the engine is working hard. Might be a good idea to check the temp of the stacks and shield if needed.

Glad you got your truck back buddy. Looking forward to getting back out with you guys. I was thinking about going up to Vail Sunday the 28th. It would be awesome if they have put in more roads. Where are you getting the grooming information?
