Snowmobiling it probably one of the best winter sports on planet earth. The power to weight ratio on a snowmobile is quite possibly one of the best in the world. There is nothing like floating on top of 3 feet of powder or the rush of burning down a forest snowmobile trail. To keep it fun it is nice to have people Grooming Snowmobile Trails.

Snowmobiles are impressive machines but those who have spent quality time on a snowmobile are far too familiar with the dreaded acceleration bumps that come from high traffic snowmobile use. The more powerful and fast snowmobiles get, the worse they beat up the trails.

Heavy snowmobile traffic on these trails or roads causes huge bumps to start to form. At first, these bumps start off as small acceleration bumps but then start to form into much larger and longer snow whoops. These types of bumps are dangerous as they cause the snowmobile suspension to preload and rebound at a really fast rate which causes the snowmobile to be unpredictable.

Not to mention they are REALLY uncomfortable to ride on. With snowmobile trails you have lots and lots of miles of trails and having big whoops on the whole trail really makes snowmobiling not very fun.

Snowmobile Trail Bump Terms

  • Snow Whoops
  • Snow Bumps
  • Acceleration Bumps
  • Snow Moguls
  • Snow Ruts

Whatever you call them they form from any real snowmobile traffic. Even if you get a lot of snow that “Fills” the snow bumps in, they will still be there because of the snow hardens into bumps.

Snowmobile Trail Snow Grooming

The only real solution is to groom your snowmobile trails with a snow groomer. We can break out snowmobile grooming equipment into two snow grooming categories.

1.Large Snowmobile Grooming Equipment

2.Small Compact Snowmobiling Grooming Equipment

Each of these two options has a variety of pros and cons. So, it really comes down to cost and what you plan on using the snow groomer for.

Large Snowmobile Trail Grooming Equipment

  • Snowcats
  • Tractors with Tracks
  • Trucks/Jeeps with Tracks

Large snowmobile trail groomers typically consist of really big and heavy equipment. For example, the ski resorts will use Snowcats to blade and groom their ski runs. There are snowmobile clubs and government agencies that use SnowCats to groom their snowmobile trails. While this is the best and most effective way to groom snowmobile trails and roads.

Snowcat grooming equipment costs hundreds of thousands of dollars and is really big and wide. The maintenance also is high. You will not be able to groom the smaller harder to get to snowmobile trails.

If you are like me, these smaller more remote snowmobile trails are my favorite.

Occasionally, you will see a tractor with snow tracks pulling a snow drag or something similar but for the most part for large scale snow grooming the Snowcat is the most widely used snow grooming equipment.

Small Compact Snowmobiling Grooming Equipment

  • Snowmobile
  • UTV with Tracks
  • ATV with Tracks
  • Truck/Jeep with Tracks

If you are like me and wish they could afford a large snowcat but can’t…luckily there are other great smaller more affordable options. Compact snow grooming equipment that can be towed behind your snowmobile for those smaller more remote trails is just the ticket.

You need to make sure you get a snow groomer that will trim/cut the trail down first then pack what you trimmed. A lot of the standard snow drags out there just rip the snow off the top of the trail. They don’t actually cut/trim the trail and then compact it after.

Is the method of cutting and trimming down the trail that will help you get rid of the snowmobile whoops is something that is needed for your local snowmobile trails. The cost of a snowmobile and one of our compact snow groomers is MUCH less than a large snowcat with grooming equipment.

We have a patented SNO-RAZOR design that will level cut whoops and drifts. All our groomers are lightweight, easy to use and extremely versatile. No matter if its a snowmobile trail, cabin trail, ski trail, tubing trail, sledding trail, dog sledding trail, or hiking trail.
