Blowing and Throwing

The land of big snow is back! Ryan sends in some photos of a Schmidt Caltrans blower working the Yuba Pass of I-80 in the Sierra Nevada mountains. I did some poking around trying to nail down the particular model but didn’t come up with much. Honestly, looking at the vehicle tells you all you need to know about its power and setup. 

In the mountains it’s not only the government folks who need big iron to move snow. The Boreal Ski Resort in Soda Springs clean requires a Cat loader with a Larue blower to keep their parking lots clean.

To go along with his great photos Ryan shot some video that perfectly captures the ease in which these machines move snow.

It’s a double feature!

Thanks for the photos and video Ryan. We hope to see more from out west very soon!
