    Here are some pics of a 24 km road to a hydro plant that we had to sand and plow. We mainly just sanded the steep hills so they could get a chipper in. Last winter we had to go in with two loaders to open it up for them after a big storm. It took us 18 hrs with 2 loaders.

    Here are a few more pics. I wish I had a chance to go right to the end of the road so I could get some pics of the plant. I did find one picture of the plant in the summer. About 5 years ago we actually built most of this 24 km road. Enjoy

    This one is about 20 km east of Marathon or 160 km west of Wawa.

    We just use our 2500 GMC and when the snow gets heavy we use our grader to push the banks back. If a good storm comes along we have to use loaders.
