What's New This Season at Black Mountain of Maine

Black Mountain recently purchased a gently used groomer to work alongside its PB280D. This new-to-the-mountain rig is a Pisten Bully Edge. The Edge is the same size as the current PB280D, but has a more powerful engine and a more robust hydraulic system. The groomer also has a segmented front blade and a tiller with advanced controls that making it ideal for use on the mountain, in the terrain park and on the tubing area. This acquisition comes at just the right time after the mountain barely made it through by last season’s amazing snows with only one groomer. The Edge will return grooming capability to a level not seen for the last two years.
