High winds caused trees to fall across trails, along with breaking the front blade of the snowcat trying to remove them

Last Tuesday night 2/7/17 we experienced a major wind storm along with a lot of rain. Wednesday night 2/8/17 we groomed Tony, Franklin Basin and started up Beaver Creek cutting and removing close to 20 trees. We were able to groom Tony and Franklin, but only made it up Beaver Creek two miles when the front blade broke from removing all the trees. This means the Beaver Creek, Amazon, Swan Flat, Sinks, and Garden city trails will most likely be full of downed trees. I am taking the snowcat in for repairs today, but most likely it will be down until late Monday or Tuesday. What a mess!!!
