Consider the person who goes to work in a snowplow and has to clear the highways of the Colorado Rocky Mountains the next time you go to your warm, comfortable desk job! Watch the video below to see a stunning panorama of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, including one road that is being plowed for passage in April after a long winter of snow.
Every April, Trail Ridge Road in Colorado is cleared in preparation for possible passage in May (Memorial Day). Two plows are involved, one in the east and one in the west, and they work together to plough snow up to 22 feet till they meet in the middle at the visitor’s center. What equipment is necessary to complete this incredible task? Wheel loaders/blowers from John Deere can handle the job and eat the snow for 48 km across Rock Mountain National Park. The snow can be thrown up to 150 feet using the rotating blower.
Plowing Trail Ridge Road costs more than $35,000 per year, according to the National Park Service. The gear is oiled and greased every morning, and the travel takes a few days. Of course, when the snow returns, it’ll be time to shift it once more.
