And the West is History: Sno-Cat Stuck in Creek – 1999

This snow grooming machine slipped into a snow-covered Hermosa Creek in Hermosa Park at Purgatory Resort in 1999. It was not easy to extricate from the watery trap, but with the use of another Sno-Cat it was finally pulled from the frigid water. It is unknown if there was significant damage to the machine. – Ed Horvat for Animas Museum, edhorvat@animasmuseum.org (Catalog Number: 14.40.444 from the La Plata County Historical Society Photo Collections)
