Default A Snow Cat Tour

I had to travel from southern Utah to central New Mexico this last week. I decided to take the long way, through Durango and Pagosa Springs, CO for the scenery. ALong the way I snapped some pictures of a cat or two.

This first one was in an equipment yard near Pagosa Springs. Not a real cat I guess, but tracked anyway....

Somewhere between Pagosa Springs and Wolf Creek I spied this little gem along the road. While snagging a quick picture of it, I saw a Spryte in the driveway behind some trucks. I went to the residence to ask if I could get a picture of it, but the lady of the house wasn't keen on the idea, so I left picture-less. Rats.

Finally, Wolf Creek. Too much to see, so little time.

They had a pile of DMCs and LMCs, a Tucker, a Pisten Bully, a Unimog (I think), AND THREE KRISTI KT-3s!!!

First, the DMCs/LMCs all lined up for new shoes...

And finally a Kristi. This is one of three Kristis owned by Davey Pitcher, owner of Wolf Creek Ski Area. He was kind enough to take the time to open the garage where he stores this one (SN 00139) just so I could snap a quick picture and climb around it a bit (not much room in there).

He has another, in Pagosa Springs I think, that is supposedly in very nice shape. I think he said his father purchased it new, but I may be mistaken.

And the third (SN 00072) is just a shell of its former self. No engine or drive train.

I hope to make it back there sometime when he and I have more time so I can see the other two.

Due to time, no Pisten Bully picture. It was in the woods a bit. By the way, all of the cats pictured at Wolf Creek are in service and I don't think they are interested in selling any. Sorry.

Hi Bob,
Thats a Unimog 416 with the M.B. Diesel OM352. Looks like an early 70s.

WHY is every Kristi we see broke down and in a garage?

The one in the garage ain't broke down. It sees snow every season. He locks it in the garage off-season to keep sneaky slow trac owners from stealing it or its ultra-advanced scientifically-engineered snow-conquering secrets.

bobpierce,
Great pics and detective work. Keep posting what you find alongside the road. Traveling as you do can be boring until you find the real mission and purpose for your travels....

I am sure BigAl also appreciates your help in keeping the snot trac owners in line....

When and if your travels bring you to WY or southern MT, let me know and I will buy you a beverage and show you a real snow cat like a Tucker Kitten....

Your right its not broke! How could I have missed that. Its being used for a storage unit. The only thing they are good for! Sorry my bad. I guess the snow it sees every year is when the door gets open so they can pull something out of her.

I treat it like a Kristi and keep it in the garage... We have never had the time to use it except to move it around in storage. But, unlike some snow cat wannabes on the forum and circus tent housed metal scrap pile wannabe snow cats, it does run and runs very good....

BigAl has let me join his club (KKK) and I like the free beer....

Keep me in mind for your Kitten run in the fall. If I am available I'll bring my Kitten, aka Miss Kitty, by. We could have the largest gathering of running Kittens (2) in recent times. All she needs now is plug wires and the tracks tightened. Still looking for a track tightening tool. I would rather use it than the hammer.

Hell, Maybe Bob can bring his Kristi and then you guys would have the largest running Tucker Kittens and Kristi gathering in the world! Of course there would only be 1 Kristi but hey its still it would be a world record! Imagine that a running Kristi!

Just told you about two MORE running Kristis above. Seems to me Polar has a running Kitten. That's 3 and 3. So what's the score on the Slow Masters? Put in a big fat ZERO for yerself and go from there.
