I am building a 3D model of a Pisten Bully 600 in Google Sketchup -- as I go along I'll post some pics.
I'm a sucker for both Pisten Bullys and Prinoths - they're like the exotic sports cars of the snowcat world.
My collection of mini cats-- 4 Pisten Bullys and 1 Prinoth.
Check out the 360 view of this Pisten Bully interior -- be sure to go full screen.
Cool. The only thing missing is a couple doing the 'nasty' in one of the gondolas. Not that I've ever done that on the Sunshine Village gondola... much
Piston Bully also has models with specialized attachments just for park and pipe grooming, the 400 & 600 PARK. Pinanfarina designed the Prinoth Beast. Which one of the two manufacturers puts in the better stock sound system, and is there anyone who will let me ride in one? As a kid I used to hang out at my uncle's diesel garage (that is where I learned to swear) and can't help noticing what each ski area uses on the mountains. In fact, I am going to suggest one of our troop's scouts email the head of grooming to see if he'll give the kids a tour of the snow cats and snowmaking during our annual ski outing this weekend (it is at a relatively smaller and more affordable hill). I always look forward to the skiing and not the snow camping part of the trip.
