Audi FIS Ski World Cup Gives Students Real World Resort and Hospitality Learning Opportunities

Meet the Green Mountain College Killington School of Resort Management Students on November 25-26, 2017 at Killington Resort.

More than 30,000 people, including 90 professional athletes from 20 different countries, are expected to flock to Killington Resort in Vermont for the 2017 Audi FIS Ski World Cup, November 25-26 – and the students at Green Mountain College’s Killington School of Resort Management (KSRM) will be ready for them. From working the front desk at the resort, to manning the snowmaking and grooming machines in mountain operations, KSRM students will be working across all capacities to ensure that the operations around the World Cup go off without a hitch.

Offering the only program of its kind in the country, KSRM provides students from around the world with the chance to earn a B.S. degree in Resort and Hospitality Management in just three years, in the perfect setting for outdoor enthusiasts and powder hounds to live their passions daily. In addition to the liberal arts and business curriculum, KSRM equips students for the real world with co-ops and internships at Killington and Pico Resorts. With the World Cup in town for the second year – and expected to return for 2018 as well – students have the opportunity to put to the test some of the most valuable skills, knowledge and experience needed to become successful managers and leaders in the resort and hospitality industry, and beyond.

“The Ski World Cup is one of the biggest event stages for the ski resort and hospitality industry,” said Frank Pauze, Director, Green Mountain College’s Killington School of Resort Management. “This is an exciting opportunity for our students to continue to apply their learning through meaningful, hands-on experience with Killington Resort, and gain the edge for them to be successful in their field of choice after graduation.”

The only three-year degree program of its kind in the country, Green Mountain College’s Killington School of Resort Management (KSRM) provides students from around the world with the chance to earn a B.S. degree in Resort and Hospitality Management in the heart of the east coast’s largest ski area. In addition to a traditional liberal arts and business curriculum, KSRM focuses on equipping students for the real world with co-ops and internships at nearby Killington and Pico Resorts.
