    I must say it is a very nice machine and she has a sweet look. Operators are finding it produces on the hill very well.
    The winch is off the hill Doc, back in operation in time to get Harris Hill ready for jumping this weekend. Yes that sweet PB winch was drawing some interest this week as well.

    Hmmm, I'm sensing that I might just be getting a regular photo opportunity for a PB 400W in the coming months

    I'm also guessing that I probably WON'T be seeing new, wider doors being installed on Mount Snow's Mountain Ops building to make it "Beastly"

    There's a Bison X demo cat at Sundown this weekend. Sorry, no pictures. Seems like it got mixed reviews from the grooming staff, compared to the PB 400 they bought last year.

    Personally I prefer the looks of the Pisten Bullys.

    Well, the 400 @ Sundown is a wheel cat, and the Prinoths are stick cats. Some guys are wheel guys. Others are stick guys. Wheel guys hate sticks. Stick guys hate wheels. Not sure what the guys at Sundown prefer, but if they like wheels, then they probably didn't like the Bison.

    PB makes stick cats too, but the Prinoth guys are quick to point out that sticks have always been Bomb/Prinoth's "A-Game," while PB has traditionally excelled in wheel cats.

    The operation of the two brands of cat is very very different. Takes some real getting used to to swap back and forth. For example, our operators at Lincoln Peak have been running PBs for a long time. Most of them didn't like the Bison at all. Then they brought it to Mt. Ellen. We're all used to running the Prinoth BR-350, and we loved the Bison. Then again, aside from one operator at Ellen, we're all stick guys.

    Anyway, it's an interesting topic. As my colleague is fond of saying, they're all crappy after the first hour! Actually, I do love running the machines. But they all have their pros and cons.

    Didn't see the Beast parked out with the rest of the groomers today But I did see that the PB 400 Winch Cat was still here in back corner of the groomer parking area

    Wish I had some pics of Cannon's first retro grooming equipment.I remember the "packer" was a round barrel stave clad contraption and the "groomer" was pretty much a chain link fence dragged behind the old Tucker cat.

    We still have some equipment like that hanging around at Sundown. I want to say they still use the "packer" for something, maybe smoothing the dirt parking lot? We also have a Tucker that they re-did a few years ago. It's mostly for show, but it has been put to work pulling the Hooker beer trailer out to the bottom of the bump course the last few springs.
