George Kaye is a member of the Ossipee Valley Snowmobile Club.
Years snowmobiling: 42 years
Current sled: 2006 Yamaha Vector
Sled mods: Had to install rear heat exchanger to prevent overheating.
Favorite sled of all time: My 1998 Yamaha Phazer, the most reliable sled I have owned. I put over 10,000 miles on that sled and never had a breakdown.
Current position: Club president
Volunteer work: In addition to serving as president, I also served as Carroll County Director for four years, and two years as assistant.
I’m a certified groomer operator, maintaining groomers and grooming equipment. My trail maintenance work includes building and maintaining bridges.
I’ve worked at the grass drags for the past several years, doing prep-work and working at the swap meet.
Tell us a snowmobile story: I met my wife on a snowmobile trip to Yellowstone in 1988. We are still snowmibiling together after 29 years.
Tell us something most people don’t know: I am a commercial hot air balloon pilot. Also my wife and I spent almost 12 years living full-time in our motorcoach, traveling throughout the US and volunteering in parks and wildlife refuges.
Favorite riding area: Anywhere where there’s snow.
