Our Friends at PCMR host an internal film festival for all the departments to participate in. we really enjoy seeing what the come up with. check this one out from the vehicle maitenance team.
The NSAA held their winter trade show at Snowbird in January. As part of the festivities, groomer operators particpated in the Phat Cat Challenge for a chance to win $1,000. It's fun to watch, and the local news featured the story.
Hi Snow fans. By now most of you are either gettting ready for opening day, or have already made some laps. We have been busy at PEC. New Employees, Summer Services, Trainings, Meetings, and alot more. But now for the best part. It's go time. We have been out on the road putting Pistenbullys all over the map. 100's, 400's Pro Series Parkbullys, 600's you name it, it is out there. The other day we threw the Go Pro up to get some footage of a delivery, so you can see how it goes. We use a great team of professionals to make sure we show up ready to impress. Our goal is to always match the quality of our equipment with our service and support. Check it out and get ready for many more. Here's to deep pow, and of course, smooth alpineflex corduroy. Until next time--
Have you reached that point in your summer where your just ready for it to be done? Hot, hot temperatures have us reminiscing of winters past and anticipating the snow forecast for next season. Whether or not you're ready for it, snow is at the heart of Peterson Equipment. And we are looking forward to a great winter. How was last season? Skiers and riders out there might have had to search a little harder, but the snow was there for those that wanted to find it. Here's a video from the Ski Utah Powderhound that shows a little can go a long way! It was originally posted on the Ski Utah blog.
We've recently added a new technician to our service shop. Deven Gnehm grew up locally and has a great interest in all things mechanical. Deven has a background in rebuilding engines, snowmobiles, and motorcycles, as well as fabrication and more. He's an enthusiastic and quick learner, and we are excited to have him in our shop. As he gains experience, you will see him out on the road, too. Welcome to PEC, Deven!
Mountain slopes aren't just for skiing perfect groomers in the winter. It seems crazy but the slopes you fly down on skis seem so much steeper when bare. Summer is a great time for enjoying some laid-back fun at your favorite resorts. Here are a couple of fun events I'd love to attend.
Music festivals are easy-access and fun for all. Many resorts host them, including Brundage near McCall. It's called the Idaho Down Music Festival, and it's this coming weekend.
Canyons in Park City has a new music series this summer. It's called Friday Night Beats and BBQ and best of all, the music is free. This is definitely on my summer to do list.
If you are looking for something a little more challenging, there are a ton of options from alpines slides to zip lines. (A-Z, see what I did there?) I've got my eye on trying out the Hiawatha biking trail near Lookout Pass. This trail has been built along an old stretch of scenic railroad and includes the tunnels and bridges.
For a little friendly competition, Snowbird is hosting a series of mountain bike races, the Full Suspension MTB series. Actually, Snowbird plays host to a bunch of cool competitions all summer long.
Finally, this one is not strictly ski-slope related, but I want to include fishing and one of my favorite blogs, the Brighton Anglers. They have a number of great posts from fishing spots throughout the area. I admit that I've never fly-fished (at least successfully), but everytime I look at the site, I get the urge to try. They make it look so easy!
This is by no means meant to be a comprehensive list. Just a few of many things that caught my eye as cool or different around our area. Check out any resort's summer offerings and get out there! Winter will be here before we know it.
