Currently working at Transition Sports as a retail sales professional in Avon, a suburb of Vail, Colorado, Joshua Rosenbaum spends his off-time enjoying outdoor recreational activities like snowboarding and snow skiing. After attending Colorado Mountain College, Joshua Rosenbaum graduated with a B.A. degree in business in 2015.
The Colorado Mountain College Business Administration degree includes a specialty program in the Ski and Snowboard Business, providing a number of courses related to the ski and snowboard industry. The classes explore everything regarding the ski and snowboard industry that a potential business owner would need, such as marketing to the industry and equipment manufacturing processes as well as business administration procedures. The school also provides certificate courses for ski and snowboard repair shop technicians, slope and trail maintenance, and ski patrol operations.
Manufacturing skis is an industry that relies upon the latest technologies in ski design to help produce skis that are lighter and allow the skier to have faster run times. Although the basic components like a laminated wood core remain the same, additional composite layers are attached to provide extra strength and longer-lasting skis. The Colorado Mountain College’s classes in ski and snowboard business will help those interested in this career have a leg up on the competition.
