Even as a child, Pascal Hallauer could watch as the PistenBullies prepared the descents. Now, he sits in the vehicle every day. In the evenings, after the last guests have left Snowpark Grindelwald – First, he and his PistenBully colleagues prepare the halfpipe with special equipment, push snow around for new obstacles or level out well worn areas. Using the colossus weighing around eight tonnes, he can do a fine job. "When needed, it is accurate to the centimetre," says Hallauer. As a freeskier, he knows exactly what is important when jumping off and landing. He remembers his first day in the PistenBully very well: "I was completely overwhelmed by all the buttons and levers," says the trained carpenter. But not for long. In the evening of the same day, Hallauer prepared his first run.
