It is VERY interesting that the mindset in the mid-west is that smaller/poorly built and maintained parks are lower liability than bigger/properly maintained parks. It is also a common mindset that smaller is less time/easier to maintain.
There is a massive movement out west to establish park constructions standards, because people are sick of places willy-nilly building parks and telling lies to customers about the maintenance requirements, high costs and improperly qualified/salaried staff building them.
(This is based on my experience in working with many parks/resorts in the mid-west with aging, non-qualified, hick/union/farmer/ex-convict/non-qualified park staff and machine operators.)
Here's an example- cut and clear:
You live in the midwest and want to become a real groomer/park builder (not laborer carrying rails or shoveling all day). What clear cut steps do you follow to do so?
You would think that with an aspect of the sport that is in such high demand, with such high exposure and liability associated, and so many people wanting to jump in to learn, help and make the sport better, some kind of class, certification, hiring program, volunteer program, etc. would exist.
