SROM 280, Ski Area Construction and Project Management builds on topics previously introduced in three related courses:  S171 Ski Area Planning, S172 Lift Functions, Maintenance and Regulations, and S166 Ski Resort Facilities Maintenance. S 280 focuses on ski area construction projects with trail construction and lift installation receiving the most emphasis.  As a part of examining construction techniques and best practices, students will study environmental impact mitigation practices, including measures to reduce impact on natural water courses.  Students will review government acts and regulations that affect construction decisions around water courses.  S280 also reviews project planning techniques and tools including Gantt Charts and PERT/CPM.
