If you’ve wondered what it’s like to groom snow in the middle of a powder storm, you’ve come to the right place. On Sunday, Worrell Specialty shared a video of him grooming the new snow at Hogadon Basin Ski Area on January 12-13th, 2023. His YouTube page is full of cool videos, which include him restoring a 1974 Thiokol 2100 B Snowcat.
Hogadon Basin is full of unique features. The upside-down ski area is located in Casper, which is the second-largest city in Wyoming. It’s seen some nice additions in recent years, including a new summit lodge and lights for night skiing.
