Pmoorepark crew means you will be working while you can ski... so even though your job is kind of skiing you wont have the freedom you normally do.
Get a job busing tables or bar tending or serving at night and have everyday to ski.
To each there own. I have friends doing it both ways. Honestly I love working in the park and wouldn't have it any other way. Also when I leave the hill for the day, I'm done with work, versus being on my way to work.
It all depends on the person. Also different mountains have different policies. Some crew shred quite a bit, others not so much. And beyond that it obviously depends on the day.
OP, to answer your question, yes. A lot of times it can be at least mildy difficult to get on the park crew at the mountain you're at, especially with no prior terrain park work experience. The problem is, that a lot of people want the job, many of whom also have little to no experience. When you take somebody with no prior experience it's a gamble. A lot of the people that want the job want the idea of the job. They have heard that parks crews sit around and smoke, drink beer, and the park builds itself. When they actually get the job, they turn out to be lazy, and it becomes a baby sitting type of even which isn't that fun.
If you have multiple mountains you could potentially work, that increases your chances by a lot.
If you have no real plan for where to land, apply for a TON of jobs. Then you really have a better shot. A lot of jobs have gone up in the last month. If you want a park job, I would recommend applying ASAP, to give yourself a better shot.
If you have any applicable experience like landscaping, construction, welding, etc or anything that shows you're a hard worker with good references that's a plus. Even then there are no guarantees. Some years you'll get an entire park staff returning. Even if there are a few jobs, many times there are already locals/friends of the crew who have been trying to get in and waiting for a spot to open up.
Here's something I wrote up last summer to cover some of the info
The best way is to apply everywhere, and keep applying until you land something. IF you get a job, make sure to crush it. Work your ass off and come out with a good reference. I'd recommend trying to work multiple seasons at the first place to give yourself a better start for your resume toward getting another gig later on.
Just don't burn bridges. If you work multiple places and get fired or have a shitty reference, nobody will want to deal with you. The parks can be stressful on their own, but if you add in some lazy people who don't want to work, it can get ugly.
It's not always rainbows, unicorns, and happy times, but the Terrain Park is a great place to work. If you've never done it but want to. Take a shot, see what happens, if you hate it you can always find an alternative job for the next season. Who knows, maybe it'll still and you'll end up a lifer in the parks.
Good luck regardless OP.
Check indeed and simply hired for park jobs. A bunch of gigs up all over right now so check it out.
