Snow grooming or piste bashing is the process to manipulate snow for recreational uses, usually using a snow groomer or piste basher vehicle (colloquially sometimes referred to as a "pistie beastie"). This can be a tractor, snowmobile, truck or snowcat towing specialized equipment to move and manipulate snow. The process is used to maintain ski hills, cross country ski trails and snowmobile trails by grooming (moving, flattening, rototilling, or compacting) the snow on them.

Famous quotes containing the words grooming and/or snow:
“Cats are the ultimate narcissists. You can tell this because of all the time they spend on personal grooming. Dogs arent like this. A dogs idea of personal grooming is to roll in a dead fish. Dogs spend their time thinking about doing good deeds for their masters, or sleeping.”
—James Gorman (b. 1949)
“What is last years snow to me,
Last years anything? The tree
Budding yearly must forget
How its past arose or set”
—Countee Cullen (19031946)
