So I had a lodge rented for New Years Weekend and I invited a few guys from work to come up and ride. They have never ridden so I wanted to rent a couple more sleds for them to play on. I contacted Cascade Playtime rentals and wanted to get a price on 4 sleds, of course Shawn was not available but they took my number and said he would call. no call, so I called every day for 3 days before I got him. He gave me a price of 175.00 per sled including a trailer. I got there early like he asked and hooked up to his trailer which had a foot of snow on it that I had to shovel off. after an hour of him getting the sleds ready he loaded up the sleds. I got a old school phazer, an older freestyle, and he upgraded me to a newer xp that was held together with duct tape, and a new Polaris with seriously bent handlebars, the last 2 where upgrades from the first sleds he brought out. So I go inside and buy some more Klim Gear from his as well, it should be noted that I have spent at least 1500.00 a year on gear and parts from him every year for years. I also want to mention that I am a local to the area for over 20 years. So I head off to the lodge stopping at Sportland for some fuel, and noticed a flat tire on his trailer. Sportland does not have air so I fix a flatted it and headed on my way. Guys had a blast riding that day, just around the power lines. rode a few hours. parked the sleds. Got up early the next am to load the sleds and return them as agreed to by Shawn. Two sleds would not start. The new Polaris with 5000 miles and the phazer would not start. Wrenched on them for a few hours replaced plugs etc, waiting for some guys to return from riding there sleds to help load up this crap. So had they started I would have returned them by 9:00 am as discussed but ended up wasting my vacation time working on his CRAP and finally getting them returned about noon. So Get back and he charges me for an extra days rental nearly 1000.00 bucks for his pieces of ♥♥♥♥. I should have known better then to rent from him as I have helped tow his customers back from the mountains several times over the years, but since I always have bought gear from him and seemed like we where always on a friendly basis ( as long as I was spending money in his shop). I wanted to give him some business. He was not willing to negotiate anything about the second day rental. So......... I am going to spend much time and money letting the whole sledding community and Public know what a weasels Shawn and his business are. Shawn you will lose thousands over this crap. I know there are many on here that consider Shawn to be a friend or buddy, good luck to you. By the way no paperwork was signed on this rental. I wonder if he is paying taxes on this income? He did tell me he bought sleds in his name because the factory warranty wont cover rental sleds. Anyway enough for now. Hope you all had a great New Years and tell your friends to rent elsewhere.

As slimey as they come----got that feeling the first time I met him..  Now that he was caught stealing I-90 motorsports trailer full of gear right before the spokane show---off to court---think he did NO jail time---just home lock down----apparently has good lawyers on retainer or Kititas county does not want to make him pay!
