The hours suck, but you are going to get some awesome sunrises and first runs once your body gets used to it!

Hey Pontoon Princess, unfortunately I don't get to drive the br100 to work. It's about an hour and 15min commute in my truck. If I could buy a house in Montezuma I probably could commute with the LS powered cat. A Terra track would be even better. You said that "girls love snowcat guys" haven't had that experience yet but hopefully. And yes sunrises are so very special.

Looks like this morning will be great skiing, it's tough to see my last pass because it's snowing pretty good. Name:  IMG_20181129_025443.jpg

Sean, Congratulations on your job. I think many of us wish we had the opportunity to get paid to drive around Uber-cool new Pisten Bullys like you do!

I have a friend, who when furloughed from his airline job wanted to drive snowcats at Park City Mountain Resort. He was told that's not an entry-level job and had to start "at the bottom", which meant as a "grunt" on the snowmaking crew. Only after he showed he was a competent and reliable guy was he given the chance to drive a snowcat. He said it was a blast, though he had some harrowing experiences.

this is sarcasm so put a smile on rookie.

rule number one on snow cat selfies.

proper grooming shall pass the boot test, where-in properly tilled and groomed corduroy shall not yield to the weight of the average build operator.....

here is your rookie advice, noob..... walk down the track out of the frame.... snap the moon, cat, sunrise, hotty in a bikini who thinks the cat operator is all that and a bag of chips.....

Walk back up the track to get in.

walking on the track will force you to tie your boots up tight and we don't have to see photos of you all warm in the cat shoe less......

FWIW snow cat operators flash the operators... its a thing, right up there with groomer shots in the lodge.

The Colorado cat crew got out to Vail pass for our first adventure of the season yesterday. This adventure comes a month earlier than our first trip last year. It's almost hard to believe how much snow is up there.


First order of business for the day for my cat was rescuing my friends snowmobile from a serious accident the day before. He rented a sled for his girlfriend and took her out onn Vail pass. They got into a field with a couple of creeks in flatlight. She was having difficulty getting over a hill so he put her on his sled and he took the rental. She hit a creek and before she could react she hit the second (much bigger) creek. The sled stopped and blew up both Skis. Her body kept going thru the handlebars (shearing all four metal mounting brackets) and ended up about 20ft away from the sled. He took her to the hospital and left the sled. She is hurt but ok. So we got the sled out yesterday. I had to put in a road in armpit deep snow to get the sled. Then we dragged it out and loaded it in his truck. It has been a rough season so far, we found multiple other sleds abandoned looking for his. Not sure if the pictures show the damage but this sled is trash.
This is where the sled spent the night.

Forum8fox is standing on the track because the snow is chest deep. This is where we put in a road to the weather station to get in our first lap.

Stretching this cat skiing thread.

Went snowboarding solo Bretton Woods. Amazing mid winter conditions.

Saw a cat. Local club Trooper groomer.

Hoping to hookup with some sno cat Colorado folk staying in Breckenridge Feb 17-22 to experience the west!

Last photo is what I hope it is like when I go to sno cat heaven.

Breckenridge is already pretty snowy you should have a great time out here. If everything is running good I should be able to take you cat skiing Vail pass one day if you want.Name:  IMG_20181207_180452.jpg

I would be happy to get a beer and a high five minimum.. Anything over that would be a bonus.

Thanks for the hospitality!

I'm free tomorrow through Thursday or Friday I think. My birthday is Monday. I need to see if I can find a way to get our cat out, may have another friend that can help so we have 2 cats out. Let's rally for sure. If it's clear we could potentially shoot a sweet night photo with some cats too. **hint, hint, maybe we can make an add for tincup and make some $$**
