    The SAM Huddle: Small is the New Big

    The SAM Huddle: Small is the New Big

    Small ski areas thrived last season as people stayed closer to home and new skiers and riders came out in droves. How will these areas fare this winter as Covid continues to impact travel and recreation, and more locals now have a connection to their local hill?


    On this episode, we huddled live and in person at the Ski Areas of New York and Pennsylvania Expo at Holiday Valley Resort in New York to talk about the upcoming season.

    The SAM Huddle: Dust Off the Covid Playbook

    The industry breathed a sigh of relief when last winter was in the rearview mirror. That sense of relief was all too short lived, though. While this winter won’t be the same as last, it appears that Covid will still be very much a part of it. On this episode, we will look ahead to the upcoming season and learn what mountain resort operators from across North America are planning as of now.

Great podcast

Been out of the industry for a while. That being said great insights for any guest related industry.

Episode 9 surprise...

Starting off the episode with Heon was definitely a gamble. I was skeptical, but Meeker was able to reel him in a and keep him on track. If it weren’t for his interviewing acumen this would have gone off the tracks very quickly. Kudos to SAM for taking a chance.
