• 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.

Question,
How many miles per day do u high mileage peeps put on?
Any time i break 1,000 miles in a season, i am excited.

Biggest days are two tanks, 120miles.
Been through a tank in 35miles this year in an 1hr and 45min.
Slowest day this year was 27 miles, and I’ll say there was a lot of ski tugging.
And then there is no seat Sunday’s.

about 300 miles... new babies and looooong drives to the snow don't mix that well. I was glad I got what I got. I'll shoot for more on the 850 next year and some laps around the yard with a 1.5yr old :face-icon-small-coo

That's some serious truck miles right there.

You too Steve.

I ended up with only 6,000 miles on the truck this season.

5 Days in BC
3 Days in Wyoming
10 Days in Northern MN.

Not even sure how many miles on the sled this season I don't really even look much anymore. I know I had a 280 mile day here in MN keeping up with those damn Yamaha trail riding family members. LOL

Not sure how you guys do it. I live in southeast idaho and have good riding about 90 miles away in any direction. Sometimes we complain that's to far. :face-icon-small-coo

This is something I could get into!

Regarding milage and gas. nov-march im pretty much always packing gas unless snow isnt great or just going for a quick ride.

Average days are 45-60 miles which ends up usually burning a bit into the spare fuel. Numerous 25-30 mile morning or evening rides tucked in around lifes responsibility

Turned out one of my best seasons, used multiple sleds but ended the season somewhere in the range of 2400 - 2500 miles this year.


Rode from Revelstoke - Sicamous - Whistler - to all over Alaska.


Put about 42K miles on the truck in 7 months of riding.

5 trips out this season. 1 to Albany, WY ride one day and sick as sh:: for 2. First ride with the new sidekick. N/A sleds are out.
4 trips to the Black Hills 2-3 day rides. Sidekick ran flawless. Indy’s clutch kit to be done this offseason.
All said and done approximately 750 Miles this year. For me a fair year.
