thanks man. I did think about doing a freighter and a KT3 but decided to pick a couple odd balls so it wouldnt look like i was playing favorites. it wouldnt be very difficult to change the model and color scheme at this point now that all the tedious pixle work is done. if i have some time i might play with a few ideas.

it would be awesome to see the weston snowboards cat. I have a friend named weston who might tag along, that would make his day for sure.

Hello I am very interested in attending the 2017 Vail Snowcat Jamboree. I have a 1963 Thiokol Spryte 1201 snowcat. We live pretty locally about two hours away. I am curious on how many people are going to attend? And some more possible details? I would like to attend. If someone could please get some more details going about all this that would be great! If not I would be interesting in going snow catting that weekend, with whomever! Please get back to me. Thank you!

That's a fantastic decal! If I can make it I will probably unload at Camp Hale, which is a lot closer for me. How would I find everyone? Just head up toward Ptarmigan???

thanks man!
Im thinking once ontop it will be easy to gather up. hard to miss a bunch of snowcats above treeline.
anyone know if the trail that comes up from redcliff is open in the winter?? could be a fun scenic route. driven it in the summer.

Yeah I have posted on here hoping to get some more information. I also have texted Aaron about the event and have not heard anything back yet. Just not sure about the area? Been through there a few times. Would be great to get together and go cat around with the group. Not sure how many people are attending? Do you know? I have been looking at McCall but not sure it's a hell of a haul..

I am not sure where to go also, I have not been up there before. Is there enough room to turn around a 75 truck with a lowboy? I do not have a small trailer to haul my cat on....

here is a map of the vail pass-camp hale area. it seems huge, and it is but once you get on the trail system and up on top near machine gun ridge its easier to navigate the area. always lots of people snowmobiling and skiing up there (atleast everytime i have gone) so if you did get lost you could probably ask for directions to shrine pass or wherever you need to go.

sorry boys I was busy working on the freighter all weekend .

shinintimes : I just text yah back give me a call and I can answer all your questions


Red130 yes you can unload at camp hail and cat to the top of ptarmigan pass . there will be sevral otheres there unloading from that side . you can look for a 543 tucker called (Mother Tucker) he is a friend and local. or call and I can give instructions there is cell service at Vail pass.

KT3survivor yes you can also assess ptarmigan from red cliff and it is open . but bring lots of gas because it is quite a haul and there is no gas station in red cliff.



Archmage yes Camp hail will have enough room for you to turn around .



I still need to make a trip to Zuma and check out the conditions for this year , that part is still up in the air because its a really gnarly area . I don't need anyone hitting a rock and making a rescue operation out of a snowcat jamboree lol.

The event will be based out of Silverthorne/Dillon/Frisco . There are several hotels There with ample parking . Silverthorne/Dillon/Frisco are basically the same town with in 3 miles of each-other

here is link to the local hotels , I would suggest the comfort inn and Bayamon hotel.

https://www.google.com/webhp?sourcei...28326908965989


We will be meeting the first day 7:00am at the Vail Pass trail head / exit off of interstate 70 exit 190 . here is a map link to that point .
https://www.google.com/webhp?sourcei...0!2i985!4f13.1


if you want to come to the camp hale side and meet at the saddle of ptarmigan you would be staying in red cliff and meeting at the camp hail trail head at this link . There will also be a local by the name of mother Tucker to greet at the camp hale side . NOVA guides is based out of camp hale as well

Hey Aaron, when you say we will meet at 7am on "the first day" are you referring to Friday or Saturday?

Default Re: Vail Colorado Snow cat Jamboree 2017

After many past years of snow catting at Camp Hale, I would like to throw out a few suggestions for whatever they are worth:

-Staying in Leadville is my preference, although a bit of a drive to Camp Hale trailhead. Tennessee Pass road seems to always be easy and well maintained regardless of weather. Ski Cooper (small) is the only ski area in that area, so less traffic and crowds on that side. Lodging is more reasonable than Summit County side. A lot easier to maneuver trucks/trailers in Leadville at motels, grocery stores, gas stations and on side streets near restaurants/bars downtown. Cool historic, funky, old town, if you've never been there.
-Vail Pass trailhead is often a zoo, especially on weekends, with snowmobilers, so I avoid it.
-I would not advise trying to stay in Red Cliff if you are pulling a trailer. It looks like it is right on the highway, but isn't. Narrow road into canyon where town is. Suggest scouting it first without a trailer. Parking is tight.
-Camp Hale (north of Tennessee Pass) has an easy pull-off unloading area (seldom a requirement for backing-up a trailer there). Has always been plowed. Lot of room in that open valley to cat around or go up. We've often barbequed at trailhead.
-Nova Guides, located just north of there is a private snowmobile/dogsledding operation (in Pando) which may not welcome non-customers with trucks/trailers filling up their lot.

My two-cents worth of 'opinions' on the subject.
