Stefan Morocutti, a long-time QParks staff member and the current park designer of the AREA 47 Snowpark and the Funslope Sölden, has been out in the mountains with the bully for about ten years and has no plans of slowing down in the future.
"When you're thinking about it; having to sit in the machine all day long while the weather's nice and all your friends are hitting the powder... it wasn't my intention to do it at first, but the job somehow just grew on me and I really started enjoying it. These days I can't imagine doing anything else for a living."
For Stefan Morocutti, as well as many others, the beeping sounds of the PistenBully are a part of winter just as much as the twittering of birds is part of spring. Via his passion for snowboarding the man from Grundlsee first started shaping snowparks and from then on one step on the career ladder followed the other. In winter 2015 he became park designer in Sölden and is in charge of the snowpark as well as the Funslope.
In this captivating report of about 4 minutes we do not only find out why the 32-year-old park designer from the Salzkammergut area is so enthusiastic about his machine, we also get to see various brilliant (time lapse) shots captured at the snowpark and the Funslope, which particularly highlight the precision and the mobility of the PistenBully.
A story of lever controls, dozing work, park blades, flex clocks and the love for the sport and nature.
