2/8/21 Up and Running again

Finished grooming Sakatah State Trail yesterday. With all the big drifts on the trail from Madison Lake to Mankato that was a big job. Took most of the day and it looks good. On the way back to Faribault by Waterville The JD groomer decided it had enough and blew a heater hose. Had to leave overnight and fixed it today out on the trail. JD groomer resumed grooming today our other trails. Trying to finish up grooming before the middle of the week.

This below zero weather is hard on the equipment

Here are some pictures of the state trail that our groomer drivers had to deal with the snow banks. This is from Madison lake to Mankato at hwy 22. The snow banks were hard and the only way was to bulldoze and bucket them.

Our trail administrator Alex M was also training a new groomer driver Alex K. On the state trail. Thank you Alex K.
