Judging Considerations

  • What is the setting for your property?
  • How many rooms do you have and what type? What other types of facilities?
  • What kind of access does your property offer to nearby slopes? How many slopes? How many for skiers, how many for boarders? What are they rated?
  • Do your guests have access to a terrain park?
  • What kind of lifts do you run?
  • How much snow do you typically get/manufacture? How long is your season?
  • Do you host any snow sport competitions or events?
  • What kind of experience/opportunities do you offer once the ski season is over?
  • What kind of dining experiences do you offer? What kind of fitness and recreation facilities do you offer? Spa or other wellness facilities?
  • What is your staff’s role in ensuring that guests have an outstanding experience?
  • What else should we know about your resort?
