Learn Ski Area Management from the Best in the Business

Opportunities have never been better, with hundreds of second generation resort managers approaching retirement age. You, the graduate of the pre-eminent four year resort degree in the nation, will be there to take over.

Accept the Challenge

Prepare for the life you want to lead at the “Best Snow College in the USA,” (US News and World Report). Whether your passion is hospitality, retail, ski & board schools, marketing, finance, or planning, we’ve got you covered.

Explore the innermost workings of the $3.5 billion ski industry through real-life case studies, debates, internships, and business plan competitions. Graduate with an education, a resort master plan, and a resume that prepares you to work anywhere in the world.

Meet Tomorrow’s Ski Industry Leaders

Recent SBRM graduates Andrew Hardy and Meagan Ballew (Northstar at Tahoe), Cameron Calvert (Squaw Valley), and Andrew Gauthier (Teton Gravity Research) discuss the advantages of the program with Tim Cohee.

Resort Internships & SBRM Alumni = Career Connections

Student internships are part of your active-learning experience, connecting the principles you learn in the classroom with current business practices. You will gain industry knowledge first-hand working at Lake Tahoe’s world-class resorts.

Our alumni are the founders and managers of ski resorts and the publishers of ski magazines. You’ll meet them in class and on the job, as you begin your career.
