    Welcome at the QParks Shape Academy supported by PistenBully

    Yes, we are looking for skilled and motivated shapers for our projects in the Central Alps.
    If you're up for spending the season in one of Europe’s top resorts, give us a call!


    What Is It About?

    In the last years, snowparks and Funslopes have become essential facilities for modern winter sports destinations. Today, there is hardly any lift operator who would diskuss about the necessity of freestyle terrain parks within a ski resort. As the need for professional concepts and, most of all, for their adequate realization has increased over the years, QParks has been able to establish an excellent reputation as a leading European provider for snowparks and snow terrain concepts.   

    What Does It Take?

    It does not really matter if you are an experienced shaper. The QParks Shape Academy trains YOU in collaboration with the snow groomer manufacturer Kässbohrer, making you an expert in park building and shaping. For us, your abilities and motivation matter, which will also decide how fast and how high you can climb up the career ladder. At QParks, commitment and good performance count more than the length of your CV. 

    How Much Does The Academy Cost?

    Nada! On the contrary, you are being paid for your training. In our view, the key to an effective training is practice, and the key for becoming an expert is effective training. We provide you with both, and your work will receive fair compensation.  

    When Do We Start?

    For us, the winter season starts at the end of November or beginning of December. You will start working depending on the ski resort you are assigned to and the local snow conditions there. The assignment of tasks. duties and staff allocation is carried out by our management and personnel department. Of course, we do our best to take any wishes regarding team or destination into account. In autumn, we will send you some first detailed info about the resort you will be working at.  

    Here is an overview of the current QParks and Funslopes.
