    We've had winch issues with our BR-350, but after sorting through some "growing pains," it's probably the most reliable machine in the fleet.

    Bison demo arrived at Mt. Ellen today:









    Might get some more pix tonight.
    The company that Prinoth uses to haul their machines around on a flatbed is having a pretty profitable week around Vermont right now!

    Can't wait to see some more pics, and hopefully your impressions of how that silver machine performs there BMM!

    I tried to get some snowgun porn shots too yesterday, but as of when I had to quit to pick my 4 year old son up from ski school, there wasn't too much set up snowgun wise Obviously Mount Snow had plenty of SMI polecats in their arsenal to put on display, and other than that all I saw snowgun wise were a couple of Techno-Alpin air/water towers, one full sized tower set up, and one mini tower on its side still in plastic wrap.

    For ski area equipment junkies like myself, the NSAA show is a really, really cool thing to have show up at my home hill now for roughly the last 5 Februaries!

    For the ski area equipment junkie, it is pretty neat from what you can see on the outside. I've never seen more than just pictures of the inside display boothes, but outside atleast, you have a bunch of different makes + models of groomers with folks demo'ing them. And also the way that the set up is at Mount Snow, behind the Grand Summit Hotel, they basically have 3 parallel snowmaking trails within a short distance walk from the hotel and hooked up to the pipes, you'll see some snowgun manufacturers with their products hooked up and running, so you might see some SMI Fan guns next to a Ratnik air/water tower near a Techno Alpin Fan Gun near an HKD air/water tower near an Aerco fan gun, etc, etc, etc.

    For most "normal" folks it wouldn't be noteworthy, but for a ski area equipment junkie, it's almost like being a kid in a candy store

    Heard the Beast did the Fiddle sans winch. Beastly.

    Well, except that the Fiddle got groomed. Not Beastly.

    My thoughts on the Bison--after a mere couple hours of playing--can be summed up as follows: I'll take two of 'em!

    Love the cat. All kinds of power, ergonomically sound, easy on the fuel, great front visibility, decent rear visibility, quiet, comfortable, and sexy. Ventilation isn't great... just two little side windows. Although the fan system does have a recirculate or outside air option. Same tiller as the BR-350. It's a good one.

    Here are some pics of the machine:










    Left a pretty nice pattern, even in over-tilled, worn-out, wind-blown snow:






    And here's a wee bit of my handiwork, after the GMVS racers got at it:
