We have been asked time and time again does your groomer take care of whoops or moguls. The answer is most of the time it does this very well. This is certainly one of the reason the snowgroomers products were made. The SNO-RAZOR will cut the tops off the whoops and place it within the divits preparing it to be evenly compacted and groomed. Adding weight on the groomer will help evenly pack the snow and make it much harder to form whoops in the future.
If the snow melts and then freezes the mogul, then the SNO-RAZOR will scratch the top of the moguls but it may not break through it enough to slash through the top. If there is only a small ice layer then the blade cuts through it. Breaks it up and allows the top of the whoop or mogul be able to be moved to the bottom and packed in the bottom of the mogul. If the ice is inches thick and solid ice then the razor does not cut through this.
Hopefully you can wait for a day when it is warm and the ice is not frozen solid and you can still get the moguls knocked down.
Even if the snow is old and it has been cold for a long time our SNO-RAZOR added to the snowgroomer will just cut through the moguls and soften them up to be groomed.
You can even set the depth of the SNO-RAZOR blade and the angle of the blade to cut through different types of snow.
So even in slush or very wet snow the groomer will take care of moguls. In extreme conditions where moguls are huge it may take more than one pass to solve the issue.
The best way is to not get huge moguls, which means grooming as soon as possible once it has snowed. This packs the snow and makes the moguls or whoops grow slower. Also if a trail is used frequently or it warms during the day, then grooming it at night before it freezes works best.
Our groomers will not stop whoops from forming but they can take care of them and will help them to form slower if the trails are properly groomed ahead of time and regularly.
Our groomers are meant to be efficient and light-weight, able to be towed by the machines more and more of us have available, it does not require a half track to pull one of them.
We think of groomers as the people who take care of these moguls and whoops. Or you could say that they are the people who operate our groomers. In this age of video games there are different names given to different people. If you do not like the names we call them, then you can call them or yourself a mogul killer, whoop smasher, trail layer or anything else you can dream up. We just give you some tools that allow you to do all of the above.
