Grooming our own ski trails - how?

Grooming our own ski trails - how?

I talked to a real old timer who passed on this tale.

In the old days, homemade groomers were used a lot.  They consisted of a
piece of expanded iron screening with the front turned up.  Two wooden
runners  were bolted on the bottom to press in the tracks.  It was weighted
with something heavy and pulled by a snow cat.  Perhaps you could make
something like it to be pulled by a snowmobile.

Hello Everyone,

I would like to make a proposal to our school here about purchasing some
grooming equipment for setting some tracks for classic skiing. (I would
like to groom for skating but I think that is out of the question... or
is it??)  Does anyone know of a low cost method of doing this?

Lisamarie says that I am a dreamer and I agree, for I have no idea what
is needed or the costs involved.  However, one never knows!.....

Could someone steer me in the right direction.  Is there a grooming
website?  Am I a dreamer?
