Mowing the lawn in a big way

Julie and I have started doing more of our hikes over on the trails at the Park City resort. The Spiro trail and the Crescent Mine Grade are very scenic and comfortable to hike. Today was a gorgeous day. You get a nice view of Park City and the Uintah mountains which are about 25 miles away.

As we continued our hike, we started to hear heavy equipment from a direction where it just didn't make sense. We got closer and found this guy driving a bulldozer up and down the ski runs, dragging a huge mowing bed.

When he got done, the ski runs looked like this.

These are some seriously steep ski runs. This is the toughest lawn mowing I have ever witnessed. How do you put that on your resume'? And what job does it get you?

It is still early yet, but the maples are starting to change color, especially on the north-facing slopes. I am hoping that all the prime leaf color doesn't occur while I am in North Carolina next week!
