to be honest i m not really sure about the word '' waiters " , i have an idea but i won t tell !!! ha !! ha !!

from what i understood from your question ,i took those pics by walking on the side of the river .

phil1 : looks like a snake for sure, you can even see the '' eye '' but also like a vertebral column !!!

dont see much , but on the second pic la cache is about 30 miles in front.

Waiter's (Not sure if I spelled it correctly) rubber boots that go up to your waist, so you can walk in the water and not get wet.

vertebral column[/quote That was my 1st thought when I looked at that picture.

All summer and fall, looking at Groomers fanstic pictures, he inspired me to take a few more then I normally doo.

It's makes it a bit tougher to decide what pic's to take when we are crusing at 40 t0 60mph. :good:

Here is a few more.

Looks like TQ5 is open for bussines! :good:

I don't know anything about grooming at all but, when I was up Valin's last week, all the groomers I saw did not have a drag, they was (Brushing ? ) the trails.

The snow was soft up there that week, and it looks like the trails you are grooming is iced up on top.

Would that be the reason?

if they had no drags , (guess) probably because there was a lot of snow or like you said for brushing .also trail can pass in some ''swampy '' places ,so mixing snow ,mud ,etc together help to freeze faster and work better with no drag.

and no ,snow was nt icy .if you look at the 9 th pic ,probably only the effect of light .snow was soft on top but ''rotten '' at the base .
