I think the reason for the wood slats on the roller was to imitate what we used to do to pack snow before there were machines to do it. Everyone who showed up for the rope tow had to side step up and down the ski hill to smash the snow. Running that roller would make the hill look like it had been stepped by skiers.

We have been working with the factory to do this preservation together. Tucker Sno-Cat Corp. is very busy building new machines which they do very well and have been for the last 75 years. They rebuilt all the axles, transmission, transfer case, and associated running gear. Glacierparkbus and I will work on preserving the exterior and interior as close as possible to what it would look like when it returned from Antarctica.

I have not seen this one yet. There is a nice selection of groomer attachments next to a tucker.
