A couple clips from the past week or two of some really wet/sticky spring snow grooming. Then a slideshow of some of my best grooming/snowcat photos. Enjoy.

Nice vid, Patrick! Love the sunrise (or sunset :?: ) pics at the end!

It's a couple years old, how about a new one this season?

BTW, will Pam cooking spray keep the wet stuff from sticking to the blade?

never tried pam,
we have however tried waxing the blades with ski wax. worked well for about 1-2 hrs then wore off.
but, there is a product called "SLIDE" used on highway snow-plows that keeps the snow from sticking.It's a liquid that can be sprayed, brushed,or rolled on ,then must dry. breaks the surface tension kind of like rain-x. it works well but must be reapplied every couple days.
a stainless steel or "plastic blade skin" maybe a more permanent solution if its a common issue. ask your local groomer dealer about them
