Snow Cat is purring

Rockin’ Ron for Hugh. Here be yer morning update. 15 inches of white gold in the past 5 days. Snow of 1 to 3 inches at higher elevations is forecasted for today, with 6 to 12 inches for Wednesday night into Thursday! Snowmaking on Upper F.I.S. from Catwalk to Goat Path (this may cause the closure of a few nearby trails). Grooming on 24 trails for a total of 95 acres of freshly groomed terrain (can’t you hear Hugh’s voice when you read that?). OK, I gotta get my second cup of coffee, then I’ll feel purr-fect.

It’s not just the trails that get groomed, it’s the areas between and around the lifts, and of course the Tubing Hill. Hey, can you do my driveway?

Cat and Mouse

Prinoth Bison

This Snow Cat is a BISON! Reminds me of Bob Marley – “Buffalo Snow Cat”.

Rockin’ Ron for Hugh. While leaving Parking Lot 1 after some sweet runs, I saw the delivery of a new Snow Cat (actually it’s called a Bison and it’s made by Prinoth). Later on in the Village, I ran into Mogul Mouse. Coincidence? Wonderful things happen at Smuggs – like the 7″ of champagne powder that was poured on our mountains in the last 24 hours!
