Track Packing

This past storm was pretty good to us. We reported 19 inches of snow over 5 days. It was enough natural snow to start doing some track packing last night. On gentler terrain, the snowcats drive over the snow to pack it down. Typically, they leave a rough tracked surface not a corduroy tilled surface. Subsequent to the track packing, future natural snow and snowmaking  comes down as a more solid, ski-able base. So far the cats have packed portions of Molly Hogan, Dercum's Gulch and Humbug.
