Snogo Listed on the National Register of Historic Places

Wausau-Everest is very pleased to announce that a SNOGO snowblower has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The 1932 truck-mounted unit is located at Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. The snowblower kept Trail Ridge Road and other park roads open for tourists and nature enthusiasts for decades. The unit is one of 39 such snowblowers manufactured by Klauer Manufacturing Company of Dubuque, IA from 1928 through 1934, and is believed to be the oldest SNOGO in existence. Wausau Equipment Company, Inc. purchased SNOGO from Klauer in 2000.

The National Register is a listing of historic properties determined to be significant in American history. Most properties on the Register are buildings, structures and sites. The listing of a SNOGO snowblower is unique because it is one of just a handful of important resources on the Register that are mobile. The park intends to restore the vehicle and use it in parades and other festivals, such as the annual opening of Trail Ridge Road and the 100th anniversary of the park in 2015. We at Wausau-Everest are extremely proud of SNOGO’s place in American history and are thrilled to continue SNOGO’s proud heritage with a complete line of top-quality loader-mount and truck-mount snowblowers.
