They were trying to track down a needed part to repair the Ski Trail Groomer -- and yes, they were of course successful. The BMD is ALWAYS successful (sometimes it just takes different directions, but they always win in the end)
Taffy reports that while there was a short in the engine, there's nothing at all wrong with that front ski. Trails are all open, and in great shape. Our skiers never noticed that the groomer was in pieces!
