I suppose it is possible that the 5 delivered to Sapporo didnt remain in country after the Olympics and went onto promo elsewhere?
I live about 1hours drive from Sapporo so I will keep my eyes open for a hydralic equiped machine I suppose the groomer gear is very rare now.
Here are a few more of the local Masters and Tracs.
One local engineer has three Masters in a good state of repair, thats his under the blue sheets.
The single Master photographed from the front is for sale for approx $2700US.
Hope you enjoy the pics.

Hi Warren,
(for people who don't know who Warren is, he operates a dedicated Snow Trac site that we have several cross links with, the site is under development but will be the best record keeping site for Snow Trac history when it is done)
Looks like you are back from your vacation! Thanks for posting the photographs. They clearly show the Olympic logo on them!

I guess the mystery now is What happened to those Olympic Snow Masters? It appears that all 5 of them were equipped the same.

One interesting thing to note, in the photo with the 5 Snow Masters lined up, all appear to have roof racks, and all appear to be 7 passenger versions of Snow Masters. However, in the other 2 photos that show the Snow Masters, those are clearly short cab - 2 passenger Snow Masters.
  • So is it possible that there were more than 5 Snow Masters used at the Sopporro Olymics?
  • Or is it possible that the photo that shows 5 Snow Masters with 7 passenger cabs were not used at the Olympics?
  • Or perhaps the 7 passenger versions were used for transport but not for slope grooming? While another lot of short cab/2 passenger Snow Masters were used for grooming?

Hi there
The picture of the 5 masters with roof racks and 7person cabins could easily be the some of the ones in my area.
But after searching high and low in the Sapporo, Hokkaido area there were no single cab or hyralic equiped machines to be found, none of the Japanese owners or snow area operators have any idea what happened to them.
I found one guy in Teine Highlands ski resort in Sapporo city he is now the mountain manager who remembers operating them at the olympics but cant recall what happened to them.
Would love to get my hands on a single cab.
So will keep looking.
Any idea of serial numbers?
Does any one know the make, model name and size of the large bogey tyres avalible. I have been searching high and low for a modern tyre.farming?forestry?
Any help would be great.

Hi Robert, welcome to the Forums. Your English is much better than my German (I can still read a bit of German but have not spoken it in many years). We are glad you joined us here. Feel free to join in any area, and please ask questions (in English or auf Deutch) and we will do what we can to help you out. And of course, if you can help us, please do so!

I do my best to translate English-German, but it usually is pretty rough!



Hallo Robert, Willkommen zu den Foren. Ihr Englisch ist viel besser als mein Deutscher (ich kann ruhig las ein wenig Deutschen aber hatte gesprochen ihn nicht in vielen Jahren). Wir sind Sie verbanden uns hier froh. Tun, fühlen Sie frei, irgendeinen Bereich anzuschließen, und bitte stellen Sie Fragen (in englischem oder im auf Deutch) und wir was wir die Dose, zum zu helfen Sie aus. Und selbstverständlich, wenn Sie uns helfen können, bitte so!

Ich tue mein bestes, um English-German zu übersetzen, aber es ist normalerweise recht rauh!

Wenn Sie ein Handbuch benötigen, habe ich die, die an keinen Kosten vorhanden sind. Ich kann es Ihnen auf einer Computerscheibe schicken.

Ich sehe Sie, im Bayern zu leben. Vor ich verbrachte einige Zeit in Oberamegau vielen Jahren. Es ist ein schönes Teil des Landes.


The V belt you are looking for is called a VARIATOR belt. Do a search here on the Forums for VARIATOR and you will find suppliers for these belts.
Der "V" Riemen, den Sie benötigen, wird den VARIATOR Riemen genannt. Tun Sie eine "Suche" hier auf den Foren für VARIATOR und Sie finden Lieferanten, die diese Riemen verkaufen.

Paul, do a couple searches and you will find some. I know we have some photos of a BLUE Snow Trac because I was considering painting mine blue, do a search for "blue snow trac" and you'll probably find it. There is also a Polish Snow Trac that is painted in red/white/black that is used as a TAXI CAB.

Off the top of my head, if you look up a member in the "Member List" by the name of 'flyingfor2' and pull up his posts you will see his GREEN Snow Trac. You may also want to look through the PHOTO GALLERY, there are probably a few in some of the various user galleries that are of non-red Snow Tracs.

Here is a black and white one, which as you can see is mostly white, it was when we had our snow - not enough to play in though!

Hi! I'm also new to the forums. I've bought a snow master from Bogie. There are no tags on it, so I'm not sure of the date. I belive it might be a '67 by looking at the tranny numbers and the suspension. Motor is a 1500cc industial single port. Missing original hood and most of grill and sheet metal around the engine compartment. I decided to restore/rebuild to as close to new as I can. Currently it has a three man cab made of steel. Most of the grousers are broken/ missing the "herring bone" peices. Thinking of trying to make my own. Have seen that several of you are trying the same. I have stripped down to the bare frame at this time. will post my photos soon of the tear down. already getting some new parts, starting on bearings and other small parts. time is hard to come by, so this will probably take a year or more. Need to replace the main frame rails as it appears to have been badly damaged in the past, (sectioned,bent, and twisted) But I'm really looking forward to getting into it! Today we have 8-10 inches of snow and it is -13 below (-24 inthe wind).

Well that makes 2 confirmed Snow Trac in Indiana. There used to be an open top version that was used in Texas oil fields here in Indiana. It was for sale about 2 years ago. Never did find out where that one went to or if it is still in the state.
