Schuss Mountain Snow Hill Climb THANKS

Just want to say thanks from myself and all the people that were with me. We had a good time to bad we had to break everything. You guys really did a good job for a first time event. Hope that it repeats again next year. After party at the bar was a blast. Glad to have met all the guys and hopefully see most of you again sometime again in the future. To anyone that did not make it out there remember next year. This is one of those things that only happen once a year and it is a great experience. Thanks Again from dennys pole barn and all my friends.

Had fun watching, too! Anybody get any pics? forgot my camera. That stock Toyota truck amazed me! Good advertisement for Toyota right there! I just picture the guy asking for directions to the casino and someone saying "Right up that hill"!

Good time, hope it happens again next year.

Thanks Grizz for doing this, it was awesome. It was great to meet you, and from now on, I'm talking to you face to face when I register for classes I have a bunch of pics and video, I'll get what I can up soon. To those of you that missed it, you better hope it happens again next year, it was the best 4X4 event I have been to in a long time.

Actually it looked worse than it really was. Trany was over heating and bleeding fluid. Other than a bad trany I do not think there were any other serious problems. He was worried for a couple minutes though.

This was great event, and well done by everyone that put it on. Started out on the slow side with the stockers getting stuck, but it was well worth it once it got rolling. Great job guys, and hope its back next year.

Had a blast. Props to everybody who showed up and helped organize. It seemed to run super smooth and not having to wait much between races kept the crowd interested.

Had to ditch my real truck and the trailer because I broke a leaf spring and hub off the axle on the trailer on the way up Friday night. I wanted to enter something for the competition, so it might as well have been the Tundra tow rig. Believe me, the truck impressed me as well! Cant believe the 32's were actually competing with 35's but hey, we all have are good days. I will be posting some pics soon....

So you were to one with the Tundra! I'll tell you what: I think people were talking about you and your stock truck kicking ass just as much as any of those SuperMods. EVERYONE was impressed!!!

That is what's great about snow. It IS the equalizer. The biggest and baddest don't always win.

Anyone watching video or looking at pics needs to realize that they don't do that hill justice(like always.) That hill was much meaner and steeper than it looks on screen. I had to walk up that hill Friday night, made it half way, and had to take a breather.

Reports right now state we had over 1400 people in attendance. This total bettered the snowmobile races from the weekend before that has been running for years now.
