  • 2. Problem
    • Estimated that snow grooming requires 6-7 million gallons of diesel fuel per year at US ski resorts
    • 3. Cost to US ski resorts over $100 Million per year
    • 4. Annual grooming costs for MMSA is $2.28 million
    requires over 156,000 gallons of diesel per year
    • Negative public perception of extensive snow grooming in relation to high lift ticket prices
  • Why lift tickets cost $99 at Vail
    Photo and Caption by Terry Richard:
    “Will they charge me just $46 if I promise to stay off the groomed runs”
    The Oregonian - March 06, 2008
  • 5. Solution: EcO-Groomer (Patent Pending)
  • 6. Key aspects
    • Utilizes 2 additional retractable snow processing units to triple grooming area by one cat on most trails
    • 7. Intermediate and Beginner trails primarily,
    not for advanced runs or deep snow events
    • Estimated that (60%-70%) of general grooming
    can be done in Eco-Groomer (EG) mode
    • Total grooming cost will be reduced by as much
    as 30% to 40% with EG technology
