Just curious: Is there a significant difference felt on a "renovated" trail (see trails report) or is this a marketing reposition for what the grooming teams do every evening anyway? Do they spend more time than they do on just plain "groomed" trails? Use a different machine? Haul in snow from elsewhere? What?

Don't know what the actual process is but having been down Vouge after it was "renovated" the result is chewing up sections of ice and boiler plate into a surface that's easier to hold an edge on a turn. Also makes some mini "death cookies" (small ice balls) that get crunched out pretty quick. "Regular" grooming tends to just flatten push piles and moguls as well as move some snow around to cover thin spots without attacking icy spots.

Cheers
Thanks for the info.

Cheers
