Major: Ski Business and Resort Management, Sustainability

It wasn’t until the end of my sophomore year of high school when I realized I couldn’t live without the mountains. When it was time to apply to colleges, I made sure every school I applied to was located near the mountains. During my research, I stumbled upon Sierra Nevada College. I searched their website, took the virtual tour online, immediately fell in love and applied right then. I had never been out west, but I took the chance and bought a one way ticket to Tahoe.

I couldn’t be more pleased with my decision. Sierra Nevada College is the perfect school for me. This college offers the two majors I desire, when most schools don’t offer anything similar. The classes are small, the teachers are great, and the opportunities in Tahoe are endless. My double majors are Ski Business and Resort Management and Interdisciplinary Studies in Sustainability. My goal is to make the ski industry more sustainable, and Sierra Nevada will help me achieve that.
