Ski resorts provide year-round recreational activity for sports enthusiasts. The bulk of the action occurs in the winter months when snow is falling and ski runs are full of powder. In the summer months however, visitors come to enjoy the outdoor scenery, hike, climb mountain bike and camp in often spectacular settings. The ski slopes and chair lifts provide a main attraction for families, friends and individuals looking to catch a rush of adrenaline. Ski resorts typically include more than one hotel to choose from and many short-term rental options. Ski resort towns are usually teaming with shopping, restaurants and nightlife activity.
Operating a ski resort requires constant maintenance to achieve optimal skiing conditions in the winter months. In the slower summer months, planning and preparation takes place in advance the busy season. The business of running a ski resort involves providing consistent attention to activities and the environment which brings nature and sport together for thrill seeking patrons. Ski resort staff typically include maintenance crews, first aid staff, lift operators, hotel and hospitality staff, event planners and administrative personnel. Training specialists for alpine ski and snowboard lessons typically rent space or affiliate as direct employees of the ski resort. Rental equipment is always available through various local vendors. Slope side food and beverage services are almost always available atop one or several peaks. Ski resort facilities are typically run using on-premise or software-as-a-service (SaaS). These programs mountain and ski run maintenance, chair lift scheduling with a subscription program platform, tickets and lift passes, employee management, accounting, point-of-sale, invoicing, billing and ski resort payments.
