The "Big One" missed Logan Canyon 1/10/17

We need more snow to start grooming
My boss and I just went up Logan Canyon to see how much snow the “Big One” put down. There is one inch of new snow at the Sinks and UDOT/Snowcat Sheds, half inch of new snow at Beaver Creek, Franklin Basin, and Tony Grove with water puddles under the little snow we got from all the rain in the canyon yesterday.

To answer everyone’s questions of why we just can’t walk the cat up the trails to groom higher?
1. Just like your machine, we need enough snow to lubricate and keep the tracks cool.
2. There is only 4 inches of packed snow on the trails at this point, so putting a four ton snowcat with 3 inch grouser on the snow will destroy what little snow there is, and make it melt faster.
3. If I hit a rock or stump with the front blade it will destroy the blade, causing us to be down a week or more for repairs. The blade is only made out of 1/8 Sheet metal and tubing to keep weight down. It’s not a bull Dozer blade.

In my 27 years of grooming snowmobile trails, this is the first time I have started this late in the season. Unreal!!!

Watch out for the logging equipment coming out of Beaver Creek. They will be logging in there though 2019.

Funny. Idaho has been grooming for weeks now with the same snow conditions.

ST. LOUIS -- Dexter philadelphia phillies jersers Fowler detroit tigers jersers avoided the first water-cooler shower, juking his way through a mob of teammates giddy on the infield dirt. He could not avoid the second, the cold celebration that came minutes later, near his dugout. "I thought I eluded them, but they got me!" Fowler said afterwards. "I'll be ready next time."

Fowler's hit made a winner of John Gant, who threw three scoreless innings of long relief in his season debut, and brought a climactic end to an afternoon in which Carlos Martinez and Noah Syndergaard dueled. "It felt like a playoff atmosphere," Fowler said. "We could see them again in the playoffs." Such long-distance forecasting is uncommon in the Cardinals' clubhouse, where focusing on the present qualifies as standard doctrine. But Fowler wasn't the only one alluding to the postseason Thursday, or speaking of the win in excitable terms. Jose Martinez called it the best victory of the season. Manager Mike Matheny called it "special." Cards on walk-off win over Mets Cards on walk-off win over Mets 01:01 1:15 PM ET "It was one of the best games I ever played," Martinez said. "We never gave up." Flummoxed by Syndergaard for much of the day, the Cardinals fought back from two deficits. Fowler and Marcell colorado rockies jersers Ozuna, two slumping but important regulars, drove in key runs. Gant, who woke up as a member of Triple-A Memphis and could end up back in the Minors soon, picked up a bullpen asked to record 21 outs. The victory sent the Cardinals to Pittsburgh winners of 10 of 12.

Gant K's Cabrera Gant K's Cabrera 00:11 1:15 PM ET Martinez's two-out hit scored Tommy Pham and saved the Cardinals a half-inning after Luke Gregerson walked in the go-ahead run with the bases loaded. Pham started St. Louis' first rally with a double in the seventh, and finished with four hits, just one day after suffering a bizarre head injury in the batting cage. Two of those hits came off Syndergaard, who lined up with Carlos Martinez in a rematch of Opening Day starters. Pham's four-hit game Pham's four-hit game 01:00 1:15 PM ET There were 37,762 fans at Busch Stadium expecting to see a high-octane duel, and that's what they got, though both starters were long gone by the st. louis cardinals jersers end. Syndergaard's defense spoiled what was a dominant start through six; he finished with two runs (one earned) allowed over 7 1/3 innings. Martinez scattered four hits and a run over six frames, routinely wiggling out of jams brought upon by three hit batsmen. "That's unique, going into a rubber game against a good team with a good starter," Matheny said. "Great series."
