Aight, so I can easily say this is this most insane thing I have ever done. To get snow on the drop in and and the platform where the jump is, they have to crane it up to us. The crane guy lifts up a container which is about the size of a small roll off container. He then has to maneuver this thing through the light towers, and bring it in to where we need it dumped.
If something snapped and it fell, it would take out the scaffold with all of us standing on it. The wind was blowing when we were dumping it on the drop in, so basically you have the swinging pinata from hell trying to crush you. The snow is stock piled man made snow that they blew into a pile a few days ago. When we dump it there are always some huge frozen snow balls in the mix. When we dump snow on the 44 degree slope you have to watch out to make sure you don't get flattened by a 200 pound powdered Dunkin Donut Munchkin.
Once we get the load safely on the deck, we have to spread it out quickly because the scaffold was engineered for a maximum thickness of 8 inches. If there is too much weight in one spot, the scaffold could collapse in that spot and we would all fall 120 feet or more into the park.
Forgot to mention that when the bucket touches on the drop in, the whole structure shakes. We dump the snow out on the uphill side of the container by opening a metal gate, which is one side of the container. The gate is super heavy and it would definitely crush your leg or head if it fell open when you weren't ready. The worst is that the snow dumping out of the bucket pushes it backward in the air and makes it swing. It would be really easy to get knocked off of the drop in, or hung by the guide ropes.
