Sounds loud. Do you wear hearing protection while skiing?

Awesome! I've wanted to try this for a while. Huntly nordic in Scotland have a trail & carpet made from snowflex, no tracks. This works surprisingly well after skiing through a sloppy pile of wax, but twigs, grass & moss don't glide too well, so it does need to be taken care of.

Year round skiing. Yeah!

For uphill that does look great

if nothing else, its a good excuse to go to Italy!

Bringing it to Northern Michigan?

Yea!!!

We need this !!!

I want one in my backyard

Very cool !

Cool!

OK, if you could install this just out to Trapper's Cabin we could have craft beer events all summer!

Nice. Let us all know if we can help. Still would like to do some more leaf blowing on existing trail.

Gabe, has been a leaf blowing machine today!! Re-route will probably add about 1/2-3/4 mile to the yellow trail, rerouting the area I call the "wasteland" where you go through all the dead oak and scrub oaks before climbing the ridge to the yellow ski trail.... If you know where that is.. lol
