3 Groomers w/ 3 hydraulic drags,,, man-power,,, fuel,,, lodging/ meals,,,, extra expenses,,, hidden costs...
$1.2 too $1.7 million based on a 4 month season,,, give or take + or - 2% would be a low bid all in...
I wouldn't be suprized if a person wouldn't encounter a $2.2 too $2.4 m bids...
Its too bad that the 3 areas are spread out,,, darn trucking costs and all of it is expensive...
The biggest set back is a small mishap that becomes a major expense ... no one can recoup from that...
The gamble of business
where are you getting your figures from? remember the groomer doesn't get the entire 20$ from the trail pass. The club can negotiate fixed rates for each trail per groom.
and yes, the only way to have a successful profitable grooming operation is to have one for each staging area.
Generally in mcbride/valemount we can squeeze a 6 month grooming program, sometimes 5 depending on the season
