People come to Nick Sargent with a lot of problems. While he would love it if more people also brought solutions (hint), it’s his job to find solutions. While this industry is all about fun from a consumer standpoint, it’s pretty amazing the level of complexity in the problems facing the industry. Just to name a few: climate change, changes in distribution, production cycles, and baby boomers aging out of skiing and riding. Let’s not forget rapid business consolidation and the fact that resorts are now the biggest players in retail.
