Winter 2016 27 Featured Dealer In the spring of 2007 Lee Foster and Jim Tees opened the doors on their new powersports dealership in Wells River Vermont. However Absolute PowerSports did not begin its story there. Lee and his wife Deb ran Moto Magic in Littleton New Hampshire selling Polaris and Kawasaki from 1988 to 1998. After a few years out of the business Jim approached Lee for input on starting a dealership and the conversations morphed into a partnership. Together in 2006 they formed Absolute PowerSports VT and purchased an existing dealership in Groton with plans to move into a renovated bus and truck garage in Wells River just off I-91. Another dealership in Gorham New Hampshire was being looked into at the same time as the dealership in Groton Vermont. Absolute PowerSports in Gorham New Hampshire opened in May of 2007. Deb and Lee say that one of their favorite things about being a part of the snowmobile industry is that they get to play a role in helping create family time in the great outdoors. Watching families get out there and enjoy something together is a rewarding aspect of the business. Absolute is involved with their local clubs and sell TMAs for Coles Pond Sledders Topsham Ridge Runners Buckaroos of 302 and the Newbury Border Riders. They also have hosted several chili cook-off club fundraisers at their location and most recently donated a gift certificate to VAST for our prize drawing at the Yankee Sportsman Classic in January. If youre riding in the area you can take a secondary trail off 302 from PH Truck Stop a short connect over the CrossVT trail then onto Industrial Park Rd and ride right to their door. Sales Manager Herb Ziter would be happy to show you all the new snowmobile models. Parts and Service Manager Travis Edson can order you some parts or help you find the right jacket helmet or anything else you need. If your sled needs some work Service Technicians Tim Derby Nick Burke or Jon Tabor are all skilled mechanics and can fix just about anything including motorcycles tractors and ATVs. Service Technician Tim Derby replaces a carburetor boot on a customers sled. He is an MMI graduate and while he enjoys working on snowmobiles Harley motorcycles are his passion. Nick Burke left is an avid snowmobiler and has worked for Absolute for over four years. Jon Tabor is a graduate of WyoTech Wyoming Technical Institute and has been with Absolute for two years. Office staff April Edson and Kiley Thompson handle the very important behind-the-scenes work of marketing customer service tracking orders and parts and customer financing. Travis Edson has a lot of knowledge on fitting customers with the right helmet and other gear suited for their style of riding. He started out at Absolute as a technician and is now the Parts and Service Manager. Beth Godin photos
