Ask kyle if he's going to get any Cat time because I know Robby is cutting back his hours!
Why don't you see if you can get some hours at Sunburst? I know it's a bit of a drive, but at least you'll have a lot more snow to work with.
As for Robby and his mgt, who cares, you need a builder! No one except for Eric is probably qualified to replace that skill set. 99% of you have no idea what it takes to build a park vs groom, especially with old piston bully equipment!
What was the guys name who was with Midwest best (skier coach, stupid short poles, pencil 10's)? I thought he was actually getting some cat time last year.
Is he going to help?
I'd like to know your source?
That would be something Jim and Steve would definately send out an e-mail blitz on if true.
Awesome if it's true, but I don't believe it.
If they let Robby build it I'm sure!
I'm hoping for the spine with the wall ride on top to make a comeback.
Squirrel can back me on this, it takes years to learn how to groom a park, it is totally different that grooming a run. I don't know who can train Kyle besides Robby. Jim Engel used to groom but he's been so removed from the hill. The new outdoor operations guy, Jim Fink doesn't know how either.
Let's be thankful that Robby still rides the park and he'll make sure it's good for the day he rides.
Squirrel, call Sunburst and help us out!
It actually is true guys,
Sunburst bought a used 2005 PARK BULLY!!!!!
MEA CULPA and couldn't be more excited!
Mother nature please allow them to make snow!
Why you wouldn't you advertise this to increase season pass sales?
Delivery expected in October, perhaps we'll see it for ski swap season pass picture day.
SAM degree, Ski area mgt. 4-5 schools across the country offer it.
Robby & squirrel both have it. You spend two years learning the basics of resort operations and then you go off on your internship to apply your trade. Most guys go out west and don't come back, that's why it's so hard to get good groomed parks in the midwest.
Cutters Camp is the top gun of park building.
Just Steve Voss:-(
Best hill in SE WI to ski (park, race, bumps)
Good to hear Eric!
It's a new season, you can go in with an open mind.
They did buy a park bully after all.
Yes, you SAM's are in high demand!
Did you talk about what nights and how many would work for you?
Good to hear it went well.
