Push to The Latest: Yes

The future is uncertain at the moment. So we're huddling, virtually, to discuss the current situation and how best to proceed with fellow industry members. While we are all quarantined and working from home we can still keep our communication lines open and work on sharing solutions.

SAM Huddle Schedule:
This schedule will be updated as new huddles are planned. Huddles will begin to take place approximately every other week this summer and fall. We will reassess timing once winter operations begin in November.

Save the Date! Our next Huddle is August 24 at 5 p.m. EDT
Lessons from Down Under

Join us August 24th for a Huddle you don't want to miss. We are talking with operators from Australia and New Zealand about everything from rental and ski school to capacity, food and beverage, patrol, and much more. There is much we can learn from how they navigated their ski season the past couple of months.
