Aaaand i'm back. Welcome to the 07-08 season here at Park City Mountain Resort. We bribed the web guy and ended up with our own blog this season, dedicated to yours truly, the Terrain Park. As the season approaches myself and Chucky have been up on the hill making the usual rounds repairing, building and cleaning. There is always something to do to keep busy this time of year. You can go through every foot of rope to make sure it's on the up and up, adding new pieces of banner tape where they should be and replacing the faded worn out ones. You can clean out the park shack and build shelving and racks to hold the rakes and shovels. There is always the fun task of going through the remaining sticks of bamboo and pulling the two for me, one for the dumpster deal with the broken sticks of boo. There was the walking of the Parks picking up garbage which mostly happened at the beginning of the summer after the snow melt. It's amazing how many truckloads of garbage I hauled out of there this summer. Please throw your stuff in the garbage cans at the bottom and top of the lifts, don't throw them on the snow. It's not a forgotten red bull can just tossed off to the side of the run when the snow melts and there are over a hundred of them.
We took the two built in features at the bottom of the Crown out this summer so there was the task of sorting through the garbage, the items we could keep and getting everything to the storage building or the dumpster.
There is so much to ramble about, but I told myself I would keep it short and sweet.
So here are some photos of randomness around the resort this summer and fall, I will try to keep with the weekly posts but sometimes I may get too busy and sidetracked and you may get a delayed post. It is now thursday, I will put together a post by friday of next week so keep checking back next week and for the rest of the season. :)
The hiking this summer was great, make sure you get up to explore around the mountain. This is DB with marley and kaya in chase on the top of Jupiter during the sunset. It's very peaceful on the mountain, away from the city and the daily grind.
That's all for today, keep checking back for more and welcome to another season!
