The classes are interesting and engage students differently than in typical university classes. We gain so much more than just a piece of paper.
This program was a perfect fit for me. I wasn't sure what to do with my life. SROAM gave me direction for my passion, skiing, and gave me a solid foundation of skills that allows me to live my dream every single day. I've taken the program and moved on through a Bachelor of Management at the University of Lethbridge, in less than the time it would generally take someone to get just a degree from a University while enjoying the process so much more.
While my post diploma degree helps open doors, my SROAM diploma gave me much more in terms of basic skills, useful knowledge, and industry experience. It has also given me an incredible network of friends who share the same love of snow. The instructors are also worth their weight in gold. The care they give students allows for us to thrive.
Because of this program, I've been able to truly live a life that is beyond my wildest dreams. I've worked at Castle Mountain in a variety of positions, Canadian Mountain Holidays, and am now doing digital marketing with Keefer Lake Catskiing along with teaching skiing. I also sit on two not-for-profit boards (CSIA Alberta and Castle Mountain Community Association) and am in charge of communications for them. This all could not have happened without SROAM.
