SROM 190 Field Study consists of a five day credit bearing field trip to visit ski areas. Although venues change from year to year, it typically includes major ski resorts and regions throughout western Canada. The purpose of this visit is to talk with ski area managers and supervisors, on location, about their operations and to inspect those operations. Often the ski area visit provides ''hands-on'' supplements to the contents of on-going SROM courses and involve field work assignments. This trip provides an excellent opportunity for candid conversations with ski industry personnel from general managers to line staff, as well as an excellent opportunity to examine facilities and equipment.
