A Day in the Life of a Terrain Park Attendant
‘It’s another gorgeous morning in the Canadian Rockies’ you think to yourself as you’re riding the staff bus up the mountain at 7:10am. The sun is rising behind the stunning mountains in Jasper National Park, creating an array of dancing lights as a backdrop to the superimposed mountains. You arrive at boot up, find your locker, and put your gear on. Durable winter apparel is a necessity along with the equipment; be it ski or snowboard, as commuting around the hill is part of your daily routine.
The day starts with morning setup; heading up the mountain to close up any openings in the Terrain Park fencelines left for the overnight Grooming crew, then maintaining all features as required to ensure they have been deemed safe for our guests before we open to public.
Terrain Park Attendants are also expected to work some evening shifts as “swampers” to assist our Grooming team in ensuring snowcat work is performed to the expectation of the Terrain Park team. Early season park builds, regular daily maintenance, rebuilds and teardown are all part of a Terrain Park Attendant’s role.
Around 3:30pm each day the Terrain Park team will start closing our freestyle terrain in preparation for our nightly Grooming work. Features that do not require snowcat work will be touched up using hand tools, parks will be closed to public and the day ends at 5:00pm with the staff bus trip back to town.
