I heard about SNOW MOBILING for the first time 3 weeks ago. My college buddy Praveen and I went to Mount Snow few weeks ago, which is about 90 minutes from where I work now in NH. But we did not realize how popular this sport / tour is, and found all SLOTs to be sold out (causing us anxiety Hyderbadi guys have, if they do not plan for a weekend movie in advance). So I postponed the event to my last weekend, before I head back to Land of Biryani. Later, I found another SNOW MOBILE tour spot just 30 miles from Claremont. It is near Killington resort.
Just when I was thinking about some company for this event, Naresh (who is pursuing MBA in Boston) pinged me. Naresh worked with me during my previous gig. Since he wanted a ride to Claremont, I suggested him to ping Vijay Gandi who used to work with me at AppLabs. They both called me 3 days ago and said, now they have another 8 folks to join the event. The link I sent about SNOW MOBILE tour caused quite bit of excitement.
However, this time we booked the event in advance. Due to the large size of the group, we could not get backyard country tour (which is of longer duration), but we did get to ride snow mobile over mountain. I did not attempt to capture the experience of the ride (while riding the vehicle), to stay ALIVE. I was able to get some footage, which shows beginning of the ride, and some warm-up session at end of the ride. Here is the compilation of today’s event, drive to Killington, snow mobile tour, with background score from one of my favorite movies.
