Rayne Brooksbank—Groomer. In 1976, when an 18-year-old Rayne Brooksbank went looking for a job and applied to be a cat operator, they asked her, “can you run farm equipment?” The Ontarion assured the supervisor she could drive a tractor and became Canada’s first female cat driver. Almost four decades later, she continues to love her job as lead hand and winch cat operator, and is one of 10 women on the grooming crew. She skis Sundays, and not surprisingly, she delights in skiing clean corduroy.
