Your ST4 will definitely qualify! Usually qualified entrants are allowed a 'guest'. The Scout can come as a Guest.

Default Vintage and newer

It's McCallin' "All" Cats. All ages and makes. I hear Tucker Inc. may be bringing a very new one. We hope permits and fees , not much in any case, will be the same for whatever you can trailer in. Some of the smaller rigs, those under 2000 lbs dry and unloaded, qualify as snow mobiles in at least our part Idaho and may have a bit more access to the backcountry. More info about all that soon. So far the officials , and there are a lot of them, are very pleaded that we are coming and will do all they can to make everyone happy. McCall Crew

I was reading lots of Idaho rules yesterday and I think 1000lbs is the max for a snowmobile for travel on roads. it would be neat to operate them in town but I couldn't find anything on snowcats.

wow, kinda like Greenfield Village, Henry Ford Museum, Michigan,


Jim VT, could you image a town, up in the Rockies/Sawtooths/Wasachs/Beartooths/etc, that only allowed Tucker Sno-Cats on the roads in Winter, no cars, no snow mobiles.

Was just taking a google flight around Mcall since I've never been there. Looks like an awesome place. I haven't booked yet but the dates are going to work out great for us.
I feel a chill in the air and the excitement of winter coming already.

the best advertising is word of mouth, tell and encourage your friends to bring their sno machine to McCallin' and join in a great event, one that you will not soon forget and wish you could do it all over again the next week.

by having it in McCall, Idaho... the hope is, folks from Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Montana, Nevada, Canada, California, Washington, Oregon, and ??? all could meet is a somewhat central location and sno cat............

I'm thinking of making the trek from grass valley ca, and maybe a couple more cats. They have the bergondorf hot springs 20miles out that would be fun.

Default Another possibility for lodging

For those of us lucky enough to have an RV as a tow rig, a new host has been found. The McCall RV Resort will be open this winter. It's only a few minutes from downtown. They were just remodeled to an upscale, beautiful facility. The rates are very reasonable and even have about a dozen cozy cabins available for a little less than some of the other options. We are negotiating a slight discount if you don't already have one from AAA or another group. Load the link and then chose McCall. McCall Crew

Just as a tease, the Friday night event/roundup/cruise starts only about 1/4 of a mile from the RV Resort. New moon that night- beautiful star shine. McCall Crew
