Is anyone wondering why the groomed runs on King Con have so many ridges? Those runs were track packed about 10 days ago and then groomed a day before we opened them. The oldest snow was rotten and we had some new snow on top of that. When the snowcats drive over the fresh snow they leave a space between the tracks that isn't run over and compacted. This raised area of snow, in comparison to the flattened snow under the tracks, will leave a small hump when it is groomed for the first time.
Originally from the Pocono’s of Pennsylvania, Travis found his way to Park City three years ago and is now our grooming manager. When not in snowcat you can find him skiing or snowmobiling in the Utah backcountry or enjoying the skiing here at Park City Mountain Resort.
