Ski Areas

About the Sector

The ski areas sector includes businesses that operate ski hills, including chairlifts, gondolas, conveyors, and cable cars. The sector also includes ski rental, ski lessons and other ski support functions. Ski areas can range from large “destination” resorts, to mid-sized local resorts and community/volunteer run ski hills.

As part of your ski business, you may also operate other facilities including Food & Beverage and Accommodations. We recommend taking a look at these sector pages too.
