Halfpipes Made Easy

Written by | 0 comment
Two new implements are on the market that carve halfpipes in a fraction of the time it takes to make them by hand. Doug Waugh has built a hydraulic snow tiller that carves a uniform transition wall up to ten feet high in a short amount of time. Meanwhile, Kassbohrer and Zugspitzbahn have created an oversized blade with a snowblower in the middle that throws the snow up on to the sides and is capable of creating walls up to nine feet high.
