Default Yeti ski

Been working with yeti to build a saddle to mount their ski on a snowhawk. Prototype ski shipped today. We are leaving for Seeley lake on the 11th. Will give everyone a chance to try it out and write up an evaluation when we get back. Got nothing but good things to say about C3 staff, really great to deal with.
Hopefully works as good as they think it will!!!

Ski fits good! Uses Simmons damper, had to add a shim under damper to get to fit tight and also create a stop for the back of the damper. Won't have a chance to get up to the mountain till this weekend. First impression of the ski is "aggressive" very deep tunnels and center keel is like an inch taller than a timbersled.

I like the looks of that Yeti.
Can't wait to hear more ride reports and how she does compared to TS ski.
Will they have the mounts for the hawks for sale when ordering and do we have an approx price?

Thanks! Good to still see new stuff for the few birds that are still out there.

they sure mounted the ski different than on a bike, the bolt that adapts the new mount to ski is where the bike bolts through.

roo should be able to answer that one for you Les since he has a proto type to play with , lucky dog .

I can not even imagine needing to use a set back on this ski , guys running hard pack trails should love it .

The front of the ski makes so much sense it's ridiculous . The ski instantly climbs , it refuses to push threw the snow .

I would think that some of the snowmobile manufactures would be scratching their heads on this one wondering why they didn't think of this .

007_Hawk , On the snow it compliments the Hawk . I'll get a picture in it's element .
