“The Hermits Hut outdoor shop has been around since 1972 and is owned and operated by Bob Clearie.  He has spent his life enjoying the outdoors and strives to make the outdoors fun for everyone around him. He purchased this snow cat to use as a rental for skiers and snowboarders to get to the top of Mt. Shasta so that they could enjoy some amazing untouched powder. It has also been featured in local parades and even radio stations have used it to fix their towers when the snow was too high to get out there by other means.” – Hermit’s Hut

This cat must have a lot of stories.

 “Used as advertising in parades, malls, and county fairs. Rented for repair to radio, and cell towers, moving actors and equipment for extreme sports reality shows, and Group use on Mt Shasta for ski and snowboard access.” -Hermit’s Hut
