• I am getting worn out moving your "For sale" threads, including loosely veiled sales pitches for "How much is it worth) or Wanted to buy to the swapmeet.

    I will no longer be moving them for you as I have been in the past.

    Some days are 20 per day.

    If I see it, it will get deleted.

    I try to help you...please try to help me.

    Thanks.
  • I've received emails and PM's asking me about "Group Buys" and promotions.

    A Group Buy here on SnoWestOnline.com would be a situation where a normal member (non vendor or mfg) personally collects orders from other members. That member then uses those orders to negotiate a better price with the Vendor/Mfg for HIS/HER "Group" of buyers.

    Here is an example of a viable "Group Buy"

    http://www.snowestonline.com/forum/showthread.php?t=269222

    A promotion that has the words "Group Buy" in the title is still a promotion, and from the rules that were handed down to me by Harris Publications is that non-advertisers cannot run promotions or open sales programs on the forums outside of the swapmeet.

    If a members wants to become a group buy manager, maintain a thread and collect the funds and negotiate a group buy... as a member, you are welcome to do that as long as you are not attached to the business of the vendor or Mfg.

    If you are a vendor/MFG and you want to offer an EXCLUSIVE "SnoWestOnline ONLY" promotion that is exclusive to snowest readers, please contact me and you'll be able to put it up in the Polaris forums.

    Also, before any vendors/mfgs get all "riled up" over this know that the moderators are strictly volunteers and do not receive a dime from any advertising $$ spent on this site.

    As ALWAYS, since DAY ONE of me becoming a moderator, I have pioneered, supported and encouraged vendors and mfgs in getting the word out to our readers with "New Product Announcements.

    Have a great season.

    From this point on, all vendors/mfg's promoting Pre-Season tiered sales programs, in the Polaris Forums, that are not paid advertisers will be appropriately moved to the swapmeet section of the forums.

2014 pro, stock boards, HMK boots. Foot gets stuck. Twisted knee a little, but could be disaster. Klim boots are a tiny bit less tall, but anyone have a solution? After market boards give more room? I’m only a size 10 foot

Yeah, once in a deep powder donut, tipped over and was stuck laying on side of sled and struggled to get out. The knee twist is the last straw.

A little searching found Everett ankle savers. Looks like that’s what will work. HMK boots have a shorter toe box and get stuck easier than the klims but these are cheaper than a new set of boots and I can keep my hmk’s

I'm the guy that makes the Everett Ankle Savers. I've been running them for many years and they work awesome. Many happy customers too. I'm taking orders now, on a limited run. Shipping to begin around 10/15/19. So, get your order in. You can either send me a PM to get a set or you can also order on the Everett Sports site here: http://everettsports.net/anklesavers.html

Didn’t look much before opening my mouth. Lots of chatter about this. I’m just behind the times. Looks like a few suggestions.

why not just cut the bar off? then you can move feet all the way forward when needed.

No down side. Have cut them off our pro's and axys's. Wrenched my knee last year and had enough ... Can now move further forward which is a benefit and now easier to bail when need be without getting dragged. 20 minute easy fix.

May do that, but found part of the cause. Bought it used and it’s in good shape, but after posting my boot issue, I looked it over close and the left stirrup area is bent Like someone kicked it hard and bent the vertical piece in a u shape so it lets my foot stick in at least an inch further which gets to the the taller part of my boot with the cross bar. Also, the running board is tweaked up about 1/2 inch making it even a shorter space. I’ll fix that first, then chose the next step.
