you have to be moving about 50mph with that to move any snow. Running start.....

I wonder if the plow is made out of a 50 gallon barrel cut in thirds and then bolted together...

Absolutely hilarious. I love the custom exhaust...that is a nice touch. Once again I am reminded that a little creativity can go a long way.

Hello neighbor. I first posted this picture back in November, but it could have been floating around in other places too. Yes, you're right, most people on here are from the east. Very few westerners, and you almost wonder if there are any landscapers at all from California.

Hey... something happened to our warm weather. I was getting all primed up for some work and then this snow. Guess you just have to go with the flow, so I spent the day shredding some snow up on the mountain. Snowed all day up there.

O ya that sounds like fun, I just been sitting around the house going crazy. I may go up and groom some of the trails if we get much more snow. I run the groomer for moon country and the grooming chairman call and asked if I was busy if it keeps snowing.

wakesetter your a groomer .... that is neat what kind of grooming equipment do you guys out there run piston bulies, tuckers or pronth... those snow groomers a amazing pices of equpiment. I got to spend a week riding along with my causion at white cap mt. it was amazing going down steep runs while trying to stay in your seat.

Clawgrass,

I run a 2005 Bombardier BR 275 with a 12'6" 12 way front blade and a 12'6" flex tiller on the back. We groom about 250 miles of snowmobile trail in all kinds of conditions from cruzin down roads to making trails on the sides of the Mt's. You are right these cats are awesome pieces of machinery. I will see if I can post a few pictures. The picture at night is an actual picture of our cat I took late one night. The others are pictures of cats just like the one I run.

Looks like fun. I just looked up the forest service's grooming map for this area, and it sure covers quite a bit of territory, however I do see that a group in Sisters also shares in the grooming. It says that the equipment is purchased from ATV and snowmobile gas tax and registration fees and that the labor is volunteer. I'd imagine that this could lead you to night time grooming up on the mountain. Wonder how that would pay? I'm not sure if I'd like the graveyard hours, but sure would enjoy the ride.

Sisters has a snow cat that is the same make and model but I think it like a mid 80s . It is not run by computers and microprocessors like moon country's is. We had one of the oldest cats in the state until October when the new one was unloaded. Everything is finger controlled and computerized, it wont even move if you don't go through the proper procedures. Sisters grooms the high country from trail 5 up toward moon mt. and out to three lakes. We groom down trail 5 to Elk lake out Cascades lake highway and all the trails below that. Then if either club gets behind we jump in and try to help catch up, or if there is an emergency they will send the cats to the scene to help in getting patient out or making a landing area for air life. It could lead to a job on the mt. but your right the hours would suck and the wages are like only 9 or 10 dollars and hour. (But I guess I go groom at those hours now and do it for free.)
