  • New Past Event - All Wheels Weekend

    Posted on 06/20/22 at 09:05 AM

    It was a wonderful day at the Dayton, Washington All Wheels Weekend. This looks to be our first annual antique, vintage, and classic snowmobile show at this great event. On Saturday we displayed 17 antique, vintage, and classic snowmobiles. Throughout the day our members enjoyed showing their original, and restored sleds as folks passed through. The display had a great assortment of sleds from original and restored trail sleds, to an early version of a Timbersled, and hot race sleds. As a special treat Brian fired up his vintage Moto Ski race trophy winning sled. The sound coming from the honker motor brought a small crowd into the show area to see what heck was making all that noise!

  • All-Wheels Weekend

    Posted on 05/25/22 at 03:07 PM

    This is a new show for us. Every year Dayton, Washington opens up its downtown and historic Main Street to host one of the most popular and well attended car shows in the entire Pacific Northwest and we are invited to participate!

    Main Street glistens on Saturday with the Show 'n' Shine as hundreds of beautifully restored cars, from Model T's to Corvettes to sleek sedans that line up along their historic Main Street. We are invited to show our antique, vintage, and classic snowmobiles. Our display will be located in the HomeStreet Bank parking lot off the main show on Main Street; 427 East Main Street:

    But All Wheels Weekend is not your usual Car Show. There is so much more:

    • Boutique Shops and restaurants just a step away
    • Craft and Food vendors
    • Outlaw Lawn Dragster Races
    • Men's “Drag” Races (Oh, they look so fine!)
    • Live Music Downtown Friday & Saturday night
    • Poker Walk
    • Presentation of Cars and Classic Cruise
    • Golf & and Putting Tournament

    Because of the huge interest there are no hotel space available in Dayton. There are hotels available in nearby cities and towns. There is also camping space available at the county fairgrounds. If you are interested reserving a camping area call one of the organizers Stephanie at (509) 382-3962. You will need to do it soon before all the spaces are taken.

  • New Past Event - The Last Resort Annual Show and Riding Event

    Posted on 03/08/22 at 09:32 PM

    It was a wonderful sunny day at The Last Resort during our annual antique, vintage, and classic snowmobile show and trail ride. On Saturday there were approximately 20 antique, vintage, and classic snowmobiles in the display area. Throughout the day our members enjoyed showing, and riding their original, and restored sleds. We had a great time trying out some of the other machines that members brought.  As a special treat we could ride a race proven vintage modified snowmobile. The show had several trophy vintage race sleds to run on the short track in the display area.

    We had People’s Choice Awards. Dick Feil won the 1st Place for his original Arctic Cat 250 with home built tow sled.  Second Place went to Brian Clark for his 1979 Moto Ski Sno-Pro 440, then Kevin Hancock ended up with 3rd place with his 1969 Wheel Horse 309 Safari. Congratulations!

    On Sunday Stephen rode his Ski-doo Formula MXLT, and Kevin rode his vintage Wheel Horse 309 Safari on the trails around the resort. The trails were groomed and frozen in the morning and great shape in.  They road to what has become a favorite destination with a lake overlook then back.  

    Thanks to everyone from the public that came out to view our sleds, and enjoy our stories. And to all our members who put in all the effort to repair, and bring to the show for everyone’s enjoyment.

  • New Past Event - PSW Vintage Rendezvous

    Posted on 03/08/22 at 09:29 PM

    Approximately 20 vintage sled riders enjoyed a beautiful Sunny day and stellar company to ride the 22 mile trek to the Garnet ghost town in west central Montana. Everyone completed the ride except one incident on a beautiful arctic cat who lost a drive wheel. Included in those who made the trek were a 4 yr old and a 6 yr old each on their own Polaris 120’s. This is definitely the next generation of sledders and they were delightful to watch. Beverages were graciously provided by Big Sky Brewing, who has been a big supporter of the vintage events so please support them and we thank Gus and Matt for hauling them up there in the 1974:Ski doo Alpine and vintage Ski boose leaving a few along the trail like bread crumbs to make sure we all found the ghost town. A huge shout out to our fearless organizer who braves, weather, politics, personalities, and broken equipment to make these events happen for the rest of us!!! Tom Mullins, you are sooooo appreciated!!!!! Thanks to all the vintage sled heads who turn out for these events and make them the fun events they are!!

  • Update Ponderosa Snow Warriors

    Posted on 03/03/22 at 09:20 AM

    The below message is from Tom Mullins:
    Friends,
    Ponderosa Snow Warriors put out this announcement last night on their Facebook concerning this weekend's Vintage Rendezvous:
    Due to some unusual and extreme weather issues our annual vintage snowmobile show, fun run and time trials are going to have to be rearranged. We are still going forward with the vintage show. However our trails are now not in any shape to hold a Fun Run. We do plan on having an in town "walking" fun run, by walking around to our local bars and drawing your hands there. If and this is a BIG IF we get the cold weather to tighten up the existing snow and we get some fresh we may be able to hold the slalom trials on Sunday with location to be announced at the sled show. We apologize for this but we can't control the weather. We do want to give you as much early notice for you to make the best decision for you.
    Thank you for your support and understanding and if you have any questions please give me a call at your convenience at +1 406-475-5786
    Forest Mercill Ponderosa Snow Warriors President.

  • The Last Resort Upcoming Event

    Posted on 02/26/22 at 11:27 AM

    We’ve made tracks all over Greg’s hay field, enjoyed the hospitality of our friends in Montana, done some racing (great job guys!), ridden old iron to the Whistlin’ Jack Lodge and a multitude of other smaller rides. Next up is our annual event at The Last Resort in Ronald WA. We will be there March 5th and 6th enjoying old sleds and we hope to see you there too!

    Our antique, vintage and classic sled show will be on Saturday March 5th behind the motel from 10am to 3pm, with trophies for the crowd favorites. We will also have an agility course for those that want to test their machine’s handling while the crowd cheers them on.

    Sunday will be our vintage snowmobile ride. We typically make the ~15mile loop through the hills behind The Last Resort but we will evaluate snow conditions and decide on a route that weekend. Plan on gathering behind the motel at 9:30am and leaving at 10am.

    Entry fees are:

    -Sled show: $20, all the sleds you can bring

    -Agility course: $10, test your skills and machine against our winding, twisty course

    -Club dues: Still $15! Pay your dues if you haven’t done so yet

    See you there!
