• 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.


slydog skis colors

Jan 6, 2016
Hi, i am wondering if anyone bought slydog skis for their sled. I have a black and limesqueeze 850 and i am wondering if the manta green or medium green color from slydog will match with the polaris color. I went to the skis builder on the website but it's kinda hard to see if it will be the same. A picture of a sled with them on would be perfect.

I'd bet if you called Slydog and asked them they would have knowledge of which one is which. Pretty sure manta was the green used for Ski-Doo, FWIW.

Manta is the Ski Doo color. Medium green is the Arctic Cat green on the new Cats.

Call slydog, they are very helpful. Personally I wouldn’t replace the stock polaris ski for any other ski on the market, unless it was purely for cosmetic reasons. Slydog has a ton of color options. There is not a better functioning boondocking ski out there, but the Attack is very very close.
