I'm on the parkcrew at Motta Naluns, Scuol in Eastern Switzerland. I have a degree in American History from Roskilde University in Denmark, but 2 years ago I decided to follow my dream, and start building some parks!
As for sketchy episodes, I actually had one of our resorts Bully drivers poach the park after closing. We were handshaping, and my boss was in the bully grooming right under a steep natural knuckle in the park. So this dude comes flying down, heading straight for said knuckle. I start screaming at him to stop, as he would ski straight into the shovel of the Bully if he kept going. But he just flips me off and yells that he works here, and he can do what he wants. Luckily my buddy just managed to intercept him and stop him. Strangely enough he wanted to fight us to begin with until he realised what was going on. I fucking hate it when people go into the park after closing, and I can tell you that this behaviour is fucking rampant in Switzerland. When you tell people that it's really dangerous they always respond by saying that they grew up skiing and that they know what they're doing.
Other than that, it's the best job in the world!
