Mid March is to late and to close to farming time here.

Had to pass last year for the same reason. Late Feb would be doable.

March 16-18 works for me, though the weekend before or after would work better.
Are there any additional Snowcat-centric activities in the works for this 2nd event?
I would really love to participate in more & varied activities with my Kristi!
Any reindeer games that might let each brand/size/style flex their muscles?
You know, like something featuring 4-track large machines, something catering to 2-track machines, maybe another for mattrack vehicles...?
Are there any nearby businesses, training centers, or maybe even the Park Service or Rangers that might want to participate in some fashion?

It looks like The Tucker factory will be reveling a new restored vintage snocat at the Jamboree. We will also have the New snowcat company Litetrax there with one of there biggest cats.The princesses will be bringing her cab forward tucker .

I'm interested but can't commit to any dates in January. If it is a stormy I'll likely be either skiing or grooming nordic trails. But it is a dry spell, I could probably trailer up there.

Any other PistenBully's coming to the Colorado Jamboree? My cat is pretty much ready for winter, now working on a winch mount for trailering.

EDIT: Photo is not from this season, we're hurting for snow here.

you bet!

it has always bothered me that a snotrac person wrote the Kristi history and brochures post on this forum. using sentences like "Kristi claimed the kt3 could climb a 100% grade" and "they appear to have no collector value"

Im very much aware of how steep my machine will gain ground. guess I'll have to attend the montezuma hillclimb to prove my point.
