So Tahoe Freeride has its fleet of six snowmobiles sitting in the driveway and ready for snow...
This fleet is worth = $xx,xxx
$xx,xxx is about what it would cost us to get a decent snowcat.
What do you think would be better? a snowcat or six snowmobiles?
Pros, cons, and usage:
Either way, this/these will be used as tools for Tahoe Freeride skiers, boarders, and filmers to get to the super sick backcountry areas. We'll be using them every week in the tahoe area, and we have a few trips planned to film and shred in the Ruby Mountains, UT, CO, and a trip to BC in the spring. We need to carry our athletes and lug all that film equipment. I'm trying to figure out which would be better to have in our first season: 6 sleds OR a snowcat
sleds are fast and fun. they also get stuck, break down, and can be dangerous when a kid like justin anderson (a TFC skier) is riding them. haha. with six sleds, we can take about 10 people plus film equipment in the backcountry at a time. an inexperienced rider can crash. Sleds are sick
The snowcat we're looking at carries about the same amount of people (plus can tow alot), cruises at about 25mph instead of 60mph, has a more dependable engine, can go pretty much anywhere a sled can and won't get stuck (easily), can use plow to build big BC jumps, is heated, has a roof rack. Can be trailered anywhere sleds can go, and all you need is a green sticker (just like a sled).
What do you think?
