We are getting some new snow up in the canyon this week, along with a lot of wind. We will do our best to push back the drifts in the higher elevations.
We are having problems with the snowcat not running right. The engine keeps going into safe mode, and we think the hydraulics is getting too hot. We are going to have our shop come up Tuesday to service the cat and see if they can fix the hydraulic cooler. We are still in the diagnose part of this, so we need to take it out Sunday to figure out what is going on. Thanks for your patience with us this year.
We will not be gooming tonight because of the high winds today.

Off highway vehicles must be registered before transporting or operating on public roads or land. Registration stickers must be displayed (stuck on the machine) along with the month sticker. Do not carry them in your bag and think that is good enough. It’s not!!! The decals will stick on the tunnel and hood very well if the machine is warm when you stick them on. Placing them on the belly pan will get ripped off when riding in deep snow.
