Seen at Coronet Peak just out of Queenstown.
I was busy taking a panoramic sequence of the snow makers when three of these beasts came down the hill grooming the snow in formation. unfortunately their lights were so bright it was next to impossible to get them coming down but they stopped where I was and went in for a 30 minute coffee break… Nice!
Piston Bully 600 Snowcat
This one differs from the first due to the fact that it has a large winch on the back which gets attached to a post at the top of very steep runs so the snowcat can still go down and then wince itself back up. Also handy if one of the others gets stuck.
