Prior to his job as Terrain Parks Manager, Chiuchiolo was a freestyle coach for the resort in 2007, and also worked for Fuse Marketing and the Ultimate Fighting Championship. In his new role, Chiuchiolo will continue to grow public events at the resort and work to expand event partners and strategic partnerships.
