James Niehues has joined the EcoGroomer team. You may recognize his name as he is the artist who created nearly all ski resort trail maps since the 1980′s. Well over 1 billion trail maps have been printed with his name right there in the trees. Mr. Niehues will create vivid illustrations of the EcoGroomer for distribution to our manufacturers, resort operators and the skiing public to help communicate the vision, benefits and eco-friendly aspects of this important new technology.
The results of our Earth Day contest are in.  As a result of 11 people, out of 100+ Ski Industry contacts, reaching out to the snow cat manufacturers by e-mail in support of the EcoGroomer project 210 new trees will be planted by the Arbor Day Foundation from our donation. The most creative e-mail was from Courtney Tilley of SeoSkye. 100 trees will be planted in her honor. Thank you Courtney and many thanks to everyone who participated.
