Our four new snowcats arrived Tuesday on a day when wintry rain transitioned into snow. Three of the Prinoth cats are BR-350s - the workhorse of our grooming fleet that you've seen us use for several years. Grooming Manager Rob Gayman describes the BR-350 as a workhorse, reliable and powerful capable of tackling the extreme weather and conditions.
Our new snowcat is the Bixon X - set up to specialize in freestyle terrain grooming. Additional maneuverability of both the front blade and rear tiller will help dial in the transitions, particularly on more irregularly shaped features, making park building and maintenance faster while improving the product, according to Freestyle Terrain Park Manager Jason Stankevich. It's also more fuel efficient, making it greener. Here's Jason to tell you all about the Bison X!
