Default Re-Post of the McCallin' All Cats 2018 Event Schedule

Welcome to McCallin' All Cats 2018 in McCall, Idaho!

This year we will start the events on Wednesday and end on Saturday to make Sunday a travel day. The host hotel is The Best Western McCall Lodge and Suites. We were able to get even better rates this year because Jessica the manager says "they were just a great group and a lot of fun". We have a block of 40 rooms available now for reservation and remember they have a very forgiving cancellation policy if your plans have to change. This is a very nice "home base".

So here we go.

Wednesday February 21 at Little Ski Hill

Travel to McCall and check into the Hotel. The Hill will open to us at 12:30 with the vintage ski area to ourselves till well after dark under the lights. The community of McCall will be invited up to see what Snow Cattin' is all about. Our insurance will allow us to give rides this year. Plan on an after dark parade. Cat skiing will be allowed too but the lifts will not be running. The local Chamber of Commerce will be helping put on a nice BBQ dinner for us and the townies with the proceeds helping the after school ski program. After the event you can leave your rig parked there to get a jump on the next day.

Thursday February 22 at Brundage Mountain Resort

Start the day at the Best Western with a very special breakfast just for our group indoors poolside. Those not staying at the hotel are welcome too. Then off down Hwy 55 to Brundage. They have a new event management team this year so look for a whole new experience. They will be opening up over 300 acres adjacent to the main runs. Trails will be packed just a few days before. The smaller cats that are 2000 lbs and less , Tucker front ski , most Imps and SUVs will be able to travel from the parking lot all the way up on the Forest Service Road to the Lookout and above. Brundage Catering will be fixing us lunch under their big tent set up the the outer parking lot. But wait, there's much more... after the lifts close they will be opening up the mountain to us to be able to travel all the way TO THE TOP overlooking Payette Lake, McCall and the valley beyond. We can stay on the hill as long as we want running till way after dark under our own lights. They just want us to be careful and not get in over or heads or tracks. If there is enough demand they can fix us a nice dinner at the Urt half way up the mountain for as many as 50.

Friday February 23 at Jug Mountain Ranch

The staff wants to lead a Dawn Patrol if at least 15 Cats are ready to go before 7AM! So we will all be parking our trailers and unloading at the maintenance lot and then running up to the Club House like last year. So far breakfast is not yet planned. Once at the start point there will be new routes marked up to the Upper Reservoir with out of area trails cleared all the way up to the state forest land. There will be a BBQ lunch at the reservoir with the warming hut open for snacks and maybe a keg too. They had a lot of fun hosting us last year and plan a few "surprises" this time.

Friday Night February 23 at McCall RV Resort Lodge

This year we will be having a catered dinner at a very nice local favorite. Nice fireplace, soft lighting and very quiet since it will be just our group and a few local friends. They will have the indoor pool open too. Tucker Inc will again have door prizes and some of the local companies and Forum members are planning on helping with a charity auction. Music? Dancing? Let me know.

Saturday February 24 at Cougar Mountain Wellington

Cougar Mountain Lodge has 7 nice rooms available and we have them all blocked. So if you want to travel down there on Hwy 55 towards Boise Friday night? The Lodge will be providing breakfast before we get going from the Wellington Snowmobile Park. Valley County will be grooming trail for us on their road well up into the mountain to the West of the Lodge. Some of us will be scouting the area in a few days and plan pictures and a full report.

So...what do you think?

The big Tucker gets my vote. Looks like we may have "The Freighter Wars" brewing.

But with the door open so you don't pass out.....

Lots of heat to!

Wait till you slip off the tracks trying to climb in, and smash your chin on the door frame.

But yes, it might "run" with a Snow Trac.

Regards, Kirk

We are waiting for some more snow here. Then we should have more to say. Meanwhile I'm working on a hoop style canvas cover for the back of mine and a few misc items so she is ready for the McCall event. Us four will be there again and sure looking forward to it. Thanks for all the organization and planning to make it happen.
Otherwise just waiting for snow here....

So...what do you think?

Mr. Bike, Could you tell us more about the Saturday activities? Like how far to the Wellington Park and if we should head back to McCall after for motel rooms? Maybe for those coming from OR,WA,CA we should head south and out via Hwy 52 through Emmitt? How is that road for trailering?

Our thoughts were for the out of towners to either head down on 55 to Boise after the event, stay over at Cougar Mountain Lodge Saturday or head back to the McCall hotel. Its about 1 hour from McCall to Cougar Mountain and about 1 hour then to Boise. Main Hwy 55 is a nice drive and is well maintained during the winter. Lots of folks last time had to leave early to beat the coming storm so this time Sunday was left free for a travel day. It will be worth it!

Putting on the leavenworth ones we noticed some people always traveled home on sunday.
Nothing was said about an idaho snowmobile permit this year. So i'm assuming it isn't needed.

I'm bringing my Tucker, which is insured for $3,000,000 liability insurance under my commercial policy, with no license and 2 snowmobiles that have liability and license plates valid in Alberta. What do I need to operate all 3 units in Idaho, and where do I get all that's required? Thanks
