Internship and Employment Opportunities
While this program does not require a formal internship, it is highly recommended that you work within the industry during your studies. Working while taking coursework allows you to apply what you are learning directly to your day-to-day activities, and in doing so, gain the necessary experience to be a successful ski area manager.
Our faculty are committed to working with all enrolled students to leverage CSU's local and national ski industry connections to find internships and employment opportunities. We have received many requests from ski areas from across North America for both employees and interns, and are happy to work closely with students to find the best resort for their needs. Family ski areas such as Wachusett Mountain Resort, publicly traded corporations like Vail Resorts and Intrawest, and other organizations that work closely with the ski industry, like Brendle Group, have all expressed interest in hiring students who are taking this program. If this is something that interests you, please contact Dr. Natalie Ooi at (970) 491-7292 or firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
