Recently a blog post (when I say "blog" it comes from three outdoor professionals who know their shit) came out taking about new regulations that will start or that have already started about maintaining a safe terrain park. Some items that were talked about were the rating systems of features and how to do inspections properly while maintaining the safety in the park as well as creating documents that can be used if any legal action was taken against the ski resort after an incident in the park.
I'm interested a lot in looking into getting a job in the park and was wondering what employees, general public of skiers (and pros?) think about theses systems/ if they have seen them used at their local hill and if they think they will work at any resort, big or small.
Not only do new terrain park standards set a bar for all resorts it also means that the professionalism of the park at any resort should rise due to these new standards. This may take many years but I think that it has a huge potential.

Secondary Note: The previous two postings are about redbull rampage and how the progression of the event has gone too far; the athletes have continued to ride gnarlier lines while redbull hasn't progressed their rider support (no compensation, and HUGE lack of safety with regards to the medical staff. good reads.
