Winter and another epic ski season is right around the corner. To get locals in the mood, students in the Ski Resort Operations & Management (SROAM) Program at Selkirk College are holding a window contest in downtown Nelson where one lucky shopper will win gear perfect for the months ahead.
The second-year SROAMies are creating eye-catching displays in the windows of Baker Street businesses as part of their Retail Management course.
“Partnering with local businesses for this real-world learning experience has been a lot of fun,” says Selkirk College Instructor Robyn Mitz. “Students value getting hands-on outside the classroom. And when they’re getting their hands on some amazing outdoor gear, they get even more excited.”
Check out window displays at The Village Ski Hut, Ripping Giraffe, ROAM and Valhalla Pure Outfitters created by Selkirk College SROAM students. Vote on your favourite for a chance to win a $50 gift card at the participating business of your choice.
As you head downtown for a fresh pair of goggles, a stylish new jacket or that new snowboard of your dreams, stop by the Village Ski Hut, Ripping Giraffe, ROAM and Valhalla Pure Outfitters for inspiration courtesy of SROAM students.
Starting Monday, October 15, shoppers have the chance to vote for which window display is best and win winter gear. Go to the online entry form at selkirk.ca/shreducation and select the display that gets you the most excited for this year’s snow season.
Students will win bragging rights and you will be entered into a draw for $50 from the participating business of your choice. Voting closes on November 1.
The Ski Resort Operations & Management Program covers all aspects of ski resort operations, giving students a unique blend of management skills and industry knowledge to prepare them for lasting leadership roles.
