• 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.

Powder riding is my absolute favorite. but every year in the deep snow, I end up with a partially stuck open throttle because snow is so packed between throttle and the block. Does anyone make a unit that is designed better than Polaris' stock throttle unit? or maybe one that is heated?

I see that skinz has a differently designed block for a decent price. The problem is they don't do a good job selling it or explaining why its better. Does it truly keep snow from packing in with its "Split" design? why couldn't they heat it like they do their expensive heated break lever?

Munster finger throttle doesn't hold anything. If you don't want to use it as a finger throttle it works pretty good as a thumb throttle as well

You might know this already, but keeping your grip heaters off will help reduce buildup. Also, I haven't tried a Teflon spray, but have heard of guys using it. Dupont makes a Teflon snow and ice repellent that may work well. I'll probably give it a try this year.
