3D Terrain Park Modeling Instruction NEW
Get your staff trained on creating 3D models of your park. This will get all departments on the same page (snowmaking, grooming, ski patrol, staff and management) before you even start the season. Alternatively, send photos and hand sketches from you staff and we will turn them into impressive models. This is also very useful for risk management. For more visit SKETCHUPTUTOR.com
Layout Design of the Park
Deciding what features are built and how they are placed in relation to one another in order to maximize cost efficiency, return on investment and overall costumer satisfaction for ALL ability lever park users. A 3D model is first designed in the Sketchup modeling software. This is helpful for pre-build critiques, dimensions and planning.
Design of Jib features
Deciding what rails, boxes and other jibs should be built to satisfy customer demand. This includes specifying dimensions, angles, building materials and construction methods.
Construction of park
We shape features to perfection, then direct a crew of hand workers to fine tune the features. We build jumps and rails with the proper entrance, exit, and underlying terrain.
Maintenance of the park
Parks are constantly changing from use, weather, and from grooming. Nightly maintenance of the park and occasional feature tune ups and rebuilds are needed.
We share tricks of the trade with machine operators and hand crew. These are professional industry practices that we have learned over the years. You can cut out a significant part of the learning curve if staff are taught simple building and maintenance methods.
Some park builders overlook cost factors and focus on the industry status quo and "how things have always been". When building our parks, we put emphasis on safety, fun, cost efficiency, and return on investment. Hiring TPC is an investment that pays for itself.
