What Exactly is a Ballhooter? 

And what exactly is a Ballhooter you might ask? With roots in Appalachia, ballhooter is an old logging term for a logger who rolls logs down hills too steep for teams. Sorry, to nix any filthy ideas you all had. Like I said, Snowshoes is as family friendly as they come. Enjoy!
