Grooming Report

We were able to find another front blade for the snowcat, so the shop boys came up today and put it on the cat. I was able to go back out and groom with no issues this time. Finally!

Snowcat Down

Thursday, February 09, 2012
 
Last night while grooming Franklin Basin I hit some dirt with the front blade bending the left side of the blade almost to the tracks. After detaching the blade from the cat, I hauled it down to our repair shop. It is in really bad shape, so it will take a week to ten days to fix. Prinoth does not have a new one in the Western United States to replace it with, so we are going to have to repair the old one. 
 
We have contacted Hyrum State Park to see if we can share their cat for a few days next week. They have agreed to let us have it Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of next week (15, 16, and 17) 
 
Here is what we will try and get done:

Grooming Report

Wednesday, February 08, 2012
 
We had a problem with our snowcat not having enough power to even put the blade on the ground, so we did not groom Monday. Our amazing shop boys found a crack in the fuel lines, so it was sucking air into the fuel. It is all fixed now, so I’m going to go out today 2-8-12 and groom the canyon. 
 
Trails are getting hard, but off trail riding is still great.

We got over a foot of new snow in the last few days in the canyon. We have started grooming our normal schedule now, but we are having problems with the tiller not working, so the shop boys are coming Monday to fix it. We are hoping it will not have to go to SLC for repairs.
