While Balaam couldn’t provide specific numbers or statistics on how often this type of Snowcat incident occurs, he said, “I should probably tell you that there are always at least some – because this type of Snowcat is what you would see at ski resorts – that there are always these types of injuries or accidents that happen.. That exact number, I don’t know.
