Ski-Doo MXZ 600R E-Tec Snowmobile
If Lamoille Canyon calls your name every winter you may consider the 2018 Ski-Doo MXZ 600R. Improved across the board with 125 hp, 600cc Rotax engine, you will be floating over and thru new powder this winter. A talked about 30 percent jump in throttle response over the prior generation will give you a quick response time when needed. Pair this with upgraded premium shocks, an improved track, and tighter steering as well as production in limited quantities and you have one desired machine. Better call Ship’s Cycle now.

Yeti Hondo Base Camp Chair
So you know when Yeti throws anything into the market its going to be of high quality and well …. expensive! Their new version of your camp chair is no exception. The Hondo Basecamp chair can hold up to 5000 pounds (are we talking people or vehicles in the chair) and is made of UV resistant vinyl said to last a lifetime. They use the same rugged manufacturing techniques as Herman Miller, renowned office furniture manufacturer, so no doubt this will last. An optional accessory pouch hangs off a back rail yet no cup holder? C’mon, a company that makes cups will no doubt have to have an cup holder accessory soon… kinda silly and really expensive but your whole camp can sit in it at once!
