About the Snow Chimps
Scott Chisholm & Andrew Thompson are the founders of Vernon Snow MX and Snow Chimps. Together we plan, ride, film, and edit videos for our enjoyment, and for sharing on YouTube.
We are former snowmobilers who were early adopters of snowbikes – and we’ve never looked back!
Where We Ride
We explore various riding areas around Sicamous, Revelstoke, Enderby, Lumby, and deeper into the Monashee mountains.
What We Ride (And Why)
We tend to prefer 450cc track bikes over enduro bikes. The track bikes may have less torque, but they have the horsepower and high revs.
We have historically ridden Timbersled and Yeti track kits. Now, for the 22/23 season, we have a Timbersled, a MTN TOP and a CMX. What fun!
We will soon be able share our complete builds, modifications, and more through That Moto App, a little thing that we have been working on for a while. 😉
The Snowbike Gathering
We organized a couple of really fun Snowbike gatherings in years past but future events have been put on hold due to the relatively high risk nature of getting so many snow bikers riding in a single area at one time. Check out the website to take a look back at our historic events. Visit website.
