Jim:
Curious: Washingtons state law about what is a snowmobile is about( OK, almost verbatim) the same as Oregons: To be a snowmobile you must:(RCW 46.04.546) (ORS 801.490) (Definition required for snowmobile) (WA condition 2)(OR condition 3)) "is steered wholly or in part by skis or sled type runners."

Is there a letter of interpretation or other Washington statute that clarifies this that you know of? My Father in law wants me to come play outside of Spokane this winter. In Oregon, Snowcats (other than old ski steered tuckers and the like) are not snowmobiles according to our DMV and are neither licensed nor titled.

Not trying to stir the pot, but to have the weasels in a row.

How much does this limit where he can and can't go. I have heard about the jamboree in Leavenworth. What type of license is needed to participate in this event? I have enjoyed the information I have gotten from this forum so far and what ever advice you can offer would be welcomed as I have never driven a Snow Trac as yet. I look forward to meeting others with information and interest.

I recognize that one and can provide some info it was purchaced from Brandon I kenai member caribue hills 17 purchased it
he put it together and got it running I may have sent out some track parts for him I can't remember but it appears to be in real nice shape there for a while before Brandons shop caught fire he was rebuilding them for resale.

Thank you for your replies. So just how do you get them to classify as a snow mobile in Washington state? How much do I gain by registering as snow mobile?

just tell them you want one. they all cost the same. I think 25bucks a year and you should get a vintage one.
you probably will gain nothing . I'm sure you know that they come with a parking sticker and is needed for your tow vehicle parking if you use a snowpark. you may get by with a Oregon one .
2014 jamboree isn't at a snowpark.

Thank you and sorry for the late response. This will help when licensing my new toy I hope to be ready for the jamboree. Been working on the little fellow. The best way to get to know anything new. Couple issues with wheels but everything seems to be in pretty good shape.

Hello, just joined the Snow Trac club last week with the purchase of ST4 #1948, former ambulance from Alaska pipeline. It will be used as my new family snow toy here in Northern California.

Hello all! I'm fairly new to the forums here, but I figured I would share with you all a picture and video of my snowcat that I bought this summer. It wasn't running when I bought it, but I have since put work into it, and these are the results! Enjoy!

Hello

Anyone have information on removing the transmission and putting taller gears on drive sprockets for snowmaster? I want to get at least another 5-10mph out of it.

Hiya, just joined. I've been a lurker for a good few years now though.

I'm a VW guy at heart and became interested in Snow tracs while at college.
The college had been gifted this 1981 registered model after it had been retired from Mountain Rescue duty.

We used it as a play thing for a while in the mid 90's. I tried to buy it but it wasn't for sale.
Its probably still sat in one of their sheds now.

Not sure how many were used as Ambulances in the UK. This is the only one i know of and mine is the only picture i've been able to find of it online.

The Mountain Rescue retired it as there was less and less snow each year so it was only used a few times each winter. Their Land Rovers could get to 90% of the places it could and were cheaper to run/maintain so they just gave it away.

I would like to add my latest purchase, Snow Trac #599. This is a former Army Snow Trac and I plan on returning it to it's Army colors. You can see the military tail lights. Along with this machine a twin parts Snow Trac was purchased as well still in it's military colors. I will post more pictures of the original paint when I pick up the parts machine. Very low hours and very little wear.

Here is Snow-Trac #291. Found this near Coeur d'Alene Idaho. Needs some work but will make a nice machine when finished. Still need to find some parts, but have found some already.

And here is what is left of Snow-Trac #603. Both #599 and #603 were owned by the Army but only #599 survived in running condition. #603 does have some good parts that I can use to put #291 back together.
