Funny, I was thinking the same thing. Skipped it this year. Skied with my kids instead.

It was a decent snow run for this time of year. A small group of big-tired vehicles made it through. The rest of us made it about a mile above the playground.

Someone asked about my pull-rope. It's a 1", 33,500# Super Yanker. It lets you snatch a stuck vehicle out by hitting the end of the rope at a run without any jerks or jars to either vehicle. Straps that claim to stretch are not even in the same league with this rope.


My opinion is that the 7/8", 28,500# would be a better choice for my Taco, and the 1" better for heavily loaded FJs and Land Cruisers.

I've heard that the 19,000# versions can be broken by a too-energetic jerk even between Tacos.

Yea that roped is best thing going when you are trying to pull out a rig larger than yours - like an 80. Wow, it's exspensive (120.00) but the best strap for the job no doubt.

Yikes!, I got mine last year and paid $100 delivered! Maybe we should invest in Masterpull?
