Terrain Park Update
Park update: 10/16/15
Well that was fast. It seems like just yesterday we were tearing out all the elements from the parks and getting ready for the summer. I hope you are all as excited as I am for this season. We have started to prepare the elements for the winter by grinding all the rust from this summer off them and giving them a fresh coast of paint. This is a pretty tedious process, but we want to make sure that they are as safe as they look, which is excellent if you ask me.
This year we have a new face helping us out. April Deschenes is no stranger to the park world. She worked for Cranmore Park Staff in years past (during the Darkside era). For the past few years she worked out at Squaw as a park ranger, but has returned back to her home mountain to ride and work with us this season. She, along with Charlie Bennett, are my leads this year. They have been working hard with me to make sure the parks are on a whole new level for the 2015/2016 season.
As for me, I have a new role to play as well. I am the Terrain Park Supervisor this year. I was the lead for the past few years, and now the keys have been handed over to me. I hope to get to know you all in the next coming months. If you see me in the lift line this year, come up and say hi. We build these parks for you guys to ride and enjoy. Those being said; don’t be afraid to give us some creative input. We want to know what you guys think of the parks.
That’s all I have for now. Look for some new updates here in the next few weeks. I will try my best to take some pictures of our progress. Get the skis and boards out, throw a coat of wax on them, tune up the edges (or detune, whatever is your thing), and get ready for a great season.
See you all out there!
