    Vail Cat Crew

    Here's some pics of my job this winter in Vail, Colorado. The nice shiny new Prinoth in the pics is a BR500 demo. 24ft wide and 500 HP of muscle.

    First pic is the inside of a Pisten Bully 300. Story of broken windshield in the fourth pic: Mourning crew operator fell asleep, slammed into a huge tree and bashed his head into the windshield due to not wearing his seat belt, They said they were gonna take him to the hospital and drug test him and he refused and quit.

    It was a VERY fun job I have to say and encourage anyone with the time to chase one of these jobs to do so. They are a blast to operate and the job never gets old.

    The 600s are pretty awesome machines, some day cats will groom mountains by themself. Did you guys have problems with all of the sensors on them. Also, why does Vail run PB and Prinoth?
