SROAM Advisory

On Monday, as a class we met with the SROAM Advisory committee, a group of ski industry professionals who advice the Instructors on changes to the ski industry and things that could be changed in the classroom. They are CEOs, GMs, Outdoor Operations Managers, and HR reps.

Talking to these individuals, I learned so much. From plans they may have in upgrading their mountains, to advice on our future, and things about the industry I didn’t even know about. The most important thing I took away from the conversations was that I WILL come to forks in the road along my career path, and I WILL have to make decisions on where I want to go. I am prepared to make those decisions to advance my career in the future.

If any of the advisory members read this, I want to say thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule and coming to talk to my class. It means a lot to hear what you have to say and we all have taken things away from it that we will retain for a very long time.

First sight of snow

When I first arrived, people told me that when I first see snow on top of the mountains is when things start to get exciting in anticipation for the ski season… It has, I could not be more excited for the ski season than I am right now. Here is that first sight, at the top of Kokanee Glacier: dsc_1829-20160704
