• 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"


    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.


Jumped ship to Polaris, what do I need to know?

Some good advice above, I would add one new product that most have not seen, but after I put it through crazy testing last year I highly recommend that everyone check this out: The new DuraPro Magnetic Tether is simply a plug and play connection, easy to install, easiest to use, 100% water proof, and when you see and use it yourself you will see how perfect it actually works. The freeze proof design has consistent release from any angle and doesnt deteriorate with age (no rubber falling apart, brittle plastic or screw needed). You will be seeing much more about this in the coming months. I would get one ordered soon, while your at it they make the DuraPro ski dampers that are amazing as well. DuraPro doesnt make many different products but what they do they absolutely do it right.
Yes, Ive tried the new Polaris tether, it still freezes up on me and Im worried about the long term durability because of the plastic "fingers" that hold it on.
you tried the new MAGNETIC polaris tether and it sucks?
