This bad-boy can solve all of your ‘lifts are too crowded’ angst for the rest of the season, and perhaps lifetime –banking on the notion you have some land to play on, and you’re mechanically inclined.

Although not street-legal, this Dodge Vancat (aka. Snow Ram) is definitely backcountry-legal. It has served as one of Peak Adventures‘ primary snowcats in the Idaho backcountry, and they’ve serviced roughly 4,100 hours of powdery bliss in its panorama canopy. Other features include 16-passenger seating, a custom paint job, Hans Hall aluminum tracks, a Ford 391 V8, custom dash and twin joysticks. No flux capacitor.

Apparently, due to a Bureau of Land Management squeeze on their permit, the outfitter has been forced to consider liquidating some of their assets. As a result, the Vancat could be yours for a negotiable $30,000.

Something tells me B.A. Baracus would have something to say to the BLM about ruining a good time in the Vancat. There’s no doubt in my mind the he’d pawn some of his gold chains to keep this beast in the A-Team garage.
