SAM Summer Ops Camp Set for Sept. 7-9
SAM Magazine-Hancock, Mass., May 5, 2011-The 2nd Annual SAM Summer Ops Camp, which affords managers and operators a chance to uncover the benefits and pitfalls of other-season activities, will take place Sept. 7-9 at Jiminy Peak, Mass.
In addition to workshops and seminars, the program allows campers to experience the several summer activities at Jiminy, ranging from a mountain coaster and giant swing to an aerial adventure course and mountain biking.
"Jiminy Peak is pleased to partner with SAM Magazine to host the 2011 Summer Ops Camp," said Jiminy CEO Brian Fairbank. "As an attendee of the camp last year, I saw the value of this type of gathering as we join together to promote year-round business at our ski areas."
Last year's program included a presentation and discussion of Disney's customer service and workplace safety programs, a roundtable on summer ops, best practices for mountain biking, and a visit to the treetop Adirondack Extreme Adventure Course for hands-on experience with a canopy tour.
SAM is currently canvassing resorts to ensure that this year's program addresses the key questions and opportunities posed by summer activities. Watch the Summer Ops Camp page for more details in the coming weeks.
