A survey as to the benefits and disadvantages of a groomer available for winter skiing operations at the Cog Railway. The groomer would be to assist in mountain rescues, snow would last longer late in the season and through warm periods due to being packed, it would knock the drifts down at the top of the ravines for a safer traverse. We would only groom 1 side of the tracks, leaving the other natural and we wouldn't groom daily packing powder, just when the trail is roughed up or iced over. The groomer would only be used when the ground is frozen, and there would be no expansion of the current trail.
The price of a land use permit does not necessarily correspond to the purchase or not of a groomer.
