“Gunny [Chris Gunnarson] uses a job with Oakley to create a healthy competition between his employees. He selects two crews of three from the ranks of SPT to build feature setups simultaneously at two different resorts in the north Lake Tahoe area; one feature setup will be built at Squaw Valley and the other at Alpine Meadows. Gunny is counting on his guys to rise to the occasion, take ownership of the build and deliver a high-quality, professional set of features at each resort.”National Geographic

How exciting is building a terrain park?  In real time, probably not that exciting.  But fast forwarding thru time and showing what these guys at Snow Park Technologies can create out of nothing is impressive.

National Geographic’s “Mountain Movers” TV show will be featuring Squaw Valley & Alpine Meadows tomorrow night at 5pm PST on the National Geographic channel.

Hiring Snow Park Technologies has been a part of the $50 million KSL has spent as a part of the Squaw Renaissance.  SGT has made Squaw’s park situation much better and they work they do there is top notch.

  1. I’ve been watching the past episodes online and the show, while being filmed and edited to pique the interest of any non mountain person, is actually quite good and entertaining. And extremely impressive to see sped up just how they make huge events like the X-Games.
