Don Norosky

Don Norosky hails from Newdale Manitoba. That's prairie country for those who don't know. Raised a wheat farmer, Don spent the last three years driving combines as a contract harvester. Hence the nickname of "Combine Don". Don has been snowboarding and operating lifts in Jasper during winter months, doing trail work in Marmot Basin during the summers and harvesting during the fall. After a weekend ski trip to KHR, Don moved to Golden to work in a joinery mill. He heard about Chatter Creek and hired on as a cat driver, carpenter and general maintenance person. Last fall, Don Norosky did some cooking for the Solitude Lodge construction crew. Combine Don is enjoying himself at Chatter Creek. Snowcats are a lot smaller than combines, but the routes are not as flat and definitely not as straight. The photo on the right was taken as Don was preparing himself to receive the Pink Purse for his cat driving prowess high on Megahooped.
