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 ride 450 Track Bikes from the KTM family (Gas Gas, Husqvarna). These bikes hit hard, work hard, and are light!
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!
For full details on our bikes, and their many mods to help make them reliable snowbikes, look us up on That Moto App.
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.

Wanna Sponsor Us?
Well, that is flattering! Here’s the deal.
Companies do send us stuff from time to time. If we like it, we tell others. If we don’t like it, we tell you. If, however, we buy stuff with our hard earned money and we don’t like it, it will likely become part of one or more of our videos. This simple formula allows us to create content, share our findings with others, and maintain our integrity. Cool?
If Facebook is your thing, you can find us at facebook.com/vernonsnowmx. If you need a quick response from us, best to send us an email. Cool?
We have a bunch of other stuff that goes on in the dirt. For information visit our sister website DirtChimps.ca.
Pretty Cool Software
We make some pretty cool software, called DATS (Digital Action Tracking System) that is used by organizations of all sizes. It’s not unusual for us to meet a new customer, or an existing customer, by way of our events and YouTube channels. Perhaps check it out. If you are interested in chatting, that’s awesome!
