— Visitors to the Hahn’s Peak Roadhouse on Saturday could have been forgiven for thinking they had suddenly been beamed back in time.

That’s because a variety of vintage snowmobiles, some 30 years old, were zipping around the community gathering spot all day.

Children loved them, and adults couldn’t grab enough cellphone pictures of them.

“It’s a perfect thing to do on a Saturday afternoon,” said Carroll Zamzow, who owns the Roadhouse with her husband, Darren.

The Roadhouse’s first Vintage Snowmobile Rally and Sled Show wasn’t even halfway over before the attendees proclaimed it should continue as an annual event.

“This is totally what this community is all about,” Tara Chase said as her son, Carter Chase, took a small 1980 Arctic Cat “Kitty Cat” for a run around the course.

Some people made the trip from Steamboat to give the old snowmobiles a go.

“This is so much fun,” Angie Chatham said after her ride. “It’s nostalgic.”
