Fall Education Seminars offer topics related to risk management and safety. Topics cover the range from summer operations to winter operations - all meant to give you tools and ideas you can bring back to your area. 

2014 Fall Education Seminars are currently being planned. Check back in late-June for a list of sessions for this year's seminars.


Below are a sampling of sessions from the 2013 Fall Education Seminar:

What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

A Lot Can Go Wrong: Prepare Yourself Before it Does.  In a fast-paced examination, we’ll analyze more than a dozen industryspecific exposures and that continue to plague ski areas. The issues run the gamut of topics, and we’ll examine the steps to prevent these pitfalls from impacting your program.

Property and Premise Liabilities: Effective Strategies to Minimize Unforeseen Risks. The industry has recently seen some sizeable, and unforeseen, property loss claims recently, from fires, snowloads, ice dams, hurricanes, and mechanical failures – not to mention the growing challenge of premise liability. Property conservation and hazard mitigation are everyone’s job, not just facilities management.

Scenarios from the Front Lines: Resorts Lead the Discussion.  In this session, we break you into small groups to explore some real-life scenarios. From both a pre and post-loss vantage, you will compare ways your resorts would deal with a wide-range of challenges, involving events, drugs, lift safety, security challenges, social media, and new attractions.  You’ve heard from us, now we want to hear from you and your fellow resorts.  

Employee Safety: The Impact on Workers Comp and Your Overall Safety Culture.  We will explore a handful of impactful employee incidents that can lead to dramatic spikes in worker comp premiums – not to mention human suffering and employee morale. A deep analysis of specific incidents, and changes in operational practices, can prevent a lot from going wrong.
