OPEN HOURS SKI SEASON - 7 DAYS A WEEK 10AM TILL 5PM
APPOINTMENTS AT OFF HOURS ARE NOT A PROBLEM, BUT YOU WOULD NEED TO CALL FIRST TO MAKE SURE THAT I WILL BE AROUND.
WE HAVE TWO GROOMERS, OUR NEW ONE THIS YEAR IS A POLARIS EPS 1000. TRACKED MACHINE GENERATING 80+ HORSE POWER. IMPLEMENTS INCLUDE ROLLER, DISC DRAG, YORK RAKE AND TWO YELLOWSTONE 84 INCH GINZU GROOMERS.
We are now grooming with two Polaris Rangers. Heated cab means more now than it used to. Picture to the left is the Red Camp across from the main lodge that we rent.
One of the main advantages we have in Osceola Is a wealth of fresh soft snow. The way we groom allows us the abilty to groom - renovate - pack any amount of snow. This lets our skiing stay firm to the ski for skate skiing. Set track for classic and no rug burns for those inadvertant sudden stops (falls).
I use a Yellowstone 84 inch Ginzu groomer. With 250 pounds of down pressure we have the ability to smooth out all snow regardless of the age. The Ginzu groomer is 330 pounds. www.yellowstonetrack.com
