Groomer’s Report

Weather: 2C, 4cm in the past 24 hours, 47cm in the past 7 days, total snowpack heights around 3oocm.

Groomed: Big Blue Snowcat is still down for unexpected maintenance (see previous groomers reports). Took the 180 out last night to ‘smush some moguls’ on the Morrissey Trail and Doug Dean Trail.

 

Groomer’s Report

Weather: 0C, 12cm in the past 24 hours, 57cm in the past 7 days, snowpack heights hovering near 300cm.

Groomed: Our Morrissey Groomer is still down for the count resulting in no grooming last night. We choose to focus on initiating troubleshooting and repairs instead of taking out the little 180 and knocking down the whoops. The maintenance issue with the cat appears to be within the pump that builds the high-pressure oil that fires the injectors but requires further testing… a challenging feat to diagnose and repair with the snowcat stuck out in the field. We are hoping to confirm this evening and get parts on their way ASAP. The trail is quite bumpy today (last groom Friday night) but with temperatures hovering around zero they are relatively soft and manageable for most riders at this time. We will re-evaluate the trail conditions and may groom with the little 180 Cat tonight; but, our volunteer’s main focus is directed at getting the big Cat back in service as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding!
