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)

Our last few bikes have been Husqvarna FC 450s and our track kits are typically, but not exclusively, made by Yeti Snow MX.

We choose track-oriented bikes because they offer the most horsepower, lightest weight, and they rev nice and high so we don’t have to shift gears all of the time.

We typically ride Yeti track kits because they are lighter and seem to have a more efficient power delivery from the motorcycle to the track.

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?

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.

The Snowbike Shop

We are the founders of  The Snowbike Shop. We maintain the website and conduct the marketing efforts, and Riders Edge Suspension takes care of customer service and order fulfilment. Check it out, and let us know if we can be of assistance.


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?

Other Stuff

Dirt Chimps

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!
