By promoting a Snow Business Course we want to include the traditions of tourism studies into the regional traditions of being a snow-based recreation and sport provider. You will be invited to learn from our traditions as winter recreation and sport event host, and to include use of many types of snow-based recreation.

At the end, the students of this course should have both an in-depth knowledge of different snow businesses and the management of a winter based resort area. Lillehammer College had a test of this program in the Spring Semester 2004 - and the program has been revised since then.
