  • PistenBully for Snowmobile Trail Grooming

    Snowmobile trail riding is much smoother and enjoyable with a well-groomed surface. West Yellowstone recently added another Pisten Bully to their grooming fleet to serve the many miles of trails that are maintained with the support of the State of Montana. To read more about the state grooming program and its funding, check out this article from the West Yellowstone News. The 600 featured in the article is the largest machine made by Pisten Bully and is the only one that we are aware of that is being used for snowmobile trail grooming. With its 6-cylinder Mercedes Benz engine, it provides 400 horsepower and 1,400 ft. lbs. of torque. It is rated to have a grooming output of 23.75 acres per hour, making it a super machine for this application. To learn more about the Pisten Bully 600, check out our website.

  • Great Divide Featured

    The Helena Independent Record recently featured an online article about Great Divide Ski Area and mountain manager JP Stanek. Great Divide is located just 22 miles from Helena. The area runs 3 Pisten Bullies, taking what can be challenging grooming conditions and making an excellent skiable surface. Here's a sample:

    Stanek says groomers need to understand the grooming pattern of the mountain, to know what’s stable, what the long-term goal is, where the danger zones are and where certain rocks or patches of earth are close to being exposed and need coverage. On various roads and cat tracks, the plow scrapes the uphill berm, which tends to sag into the skiing lane and capture blowing snow.

    With all the remote twists and turns on Great Divide, Stanek figures it takes a groomer two to three seasons to really know the mountain.

    The article provides another interesting perspective on the issues confronting experienced groomers. Check it out!

    There's nothing better than Spring skiing here in Utah. A chance to enjoy the sunshine and cruise your favorite runs. Ever wondered what it is like to be a groomer at a ski area? Long after I've taken my boots off for the day, these guys are just getting started laying down that silky corduroy we love to ski.
