Colleges for Ski Area Management

Comprehensive training programs for individuals interested in pursuing a career in the ski industry. Technical and academic study is combined with a practical internship which is conducted at major ski resorts throughout Colorado, Utah, Vermont, California and the Midwest. Students spend their freshman year and the first eight weeks of their sophomore year completing prerequisite courses in Ironwood. During this period, the Mt. Zion Ski Complex is utilized as a training laboratory. Mt. Zion is our college owned and operated ski area located on campus and is open to the public. The remainder of the sophomore year, students are in training at an internship site.
