Put rail extensions or a different skid into you zert 600! Some light weight parts and you'll have a great sled with plenty of power and handling.

i dont need anything that bigi just want somehting with alittle more traction for the hills and if i decide to go on any trips up north so i woul stand a chance.. the most snow i would see at one time is about 2-3 feet of it and the chances of that are not very good so i would think that a 136 with a 1.5 and studs? with a.. 600cc i was almost thiking about a ski-doo ??? i would like o stay with cat so maybe a mountain cat? i like the looks of the mxz long tracks though

Great powder machines need
1 2" track the longer the better
2 Power
3 lite weight

In 95 Skidoo came out with a 670 and a 1.25 track, our Phazers with 1 1/2" paddles would kill it in powder. Get it track, power, weight. when we put a 2" paddle track on the Summit it was all over for the Phazer. Still a great little machine though.

Heres my "97" 600 XC 430 LB Skilaris with a 670/720 165 hp engine. I built this machine from scratch.

Actually thats the Super 8 Motel just 7.5 miles west of West Yellowstone. Here's my favorite place Revelstoke BC. This is in April and we went over the saddle into the next valley.
