The mattracks SIII is owned by Bob, he goes by bcourtney here on d-90.

As for chains, they are hit and miss. Some years snow is deep and soft, flotation is the key. Other years icey and nightmarish and chains rule the days. Most don't want the complication of them, especially if you loose a chain and the people behind you aren't watching/on the radio to tell you it came off and is about to tear off the brake line.

Nice shot! I think it was only 5PM at that point. Here is a shot from 5:15 (actually probably any time between 5:15 and 6:45 as that's how long I think it took to recover both of our trucks). Thanks to my oldest brother for giving me his super awesome ski jacket with Killington tags from 1988 that I was able to use to save the truck from torn windows and a dented rear tub by wedging it between me and the tree as I slid closer and closer (and eventually onto) to that tree. And thanks to Ron and Scott and Anthony and everyone else in the group who helped out with the recoveries that night.

That's Fernando's rig. He is a mechanic at Land Rover Manhattan. He has been wheeling that truck for a while now. Wins the RTI all the time at MAR.

Maybe this will answer your question

Obviously snow, sand and swamps are the best use of the Mattracks, but after a few outings I have learned how to put it through the more extremes. I did every trail at Romp without any issues. Walked Screaming Eagle like going to the mall. Only thing I did not do was the Pit. Cleaning frozen mud out of them is a bitch. I am just waiting for a big 4' snow fall for NY.

Damn thought I had something there. However I did do it going backwards or should I say driving in reverse.

LOL I did take it to the mall the last snowstorm, I had people taking pictures and a couple of them actually posing in front when I came out.

Jarek put together a great video of the Winter Romp from this year. They ended up having some issues on the trip up and basically only got a single day of wheeling in.

Yep, typical "event" lack of trail etiquette with the lead truck stopping way too soon after crossing an obstacle so that the vehicles behind get all bunched up leaving the last ones virtually no run out room. @peeve.
