Industry Days Inspire Youth

This winter, SOS partnered with Vail Resorts mountains Heavenly, Northstar, Park City, Beaver Creek, and other corporate partners Loveland, Copper, and evo to give participants an inside look into potential careers within the industry. Across locations, participants met with employees in leadership roles in a wide range of departments including ski school, mountain operations, snowmaking, ski patrol, lift operations, maintenance, and sales. They had the chance to ask questions, test out equipment, and learn firsthand the individual paths each leader took to get where they are today. The kids were able to get up close and personal with the snowcats, see ski patrol dogs in action, tour dining facilities, and hear from ski school instructors! As many SOS students embark on college applications and others progress towards the career path of their dreams, these Industry Days provide opportunities to peer into future career possibilities where their passions can translate into professions.
