How'd they do that grooming?

With a custom made drag pulled behind a snowmobile. We have been doing this way for a few years now. It won't always get down to bare ground but does a pretty good job. The bigger drifts in the open are sometimes tackled using a tractor with a blade or bucket. When you combine the cleared singletrack and Bald Mountain trails that the snowmobiles have packed, you have quite a lot of trail to ride.

Depending on the snow depth, type of snow, temperatures, etc., it takes a varying amount of time before a MTB is able to ride the trails. But once conditions are prime the trails are sometimes better than riding on dirt, including better traction. And this is on regular MTB's. The advent of fatbikes has extended the horizon on either side of the timeline for rideability.
Is there day of registration?
