Question 7 of 35
A ski resort in Ohio is on the decline, what do you think their challenges are? What are a few things you would suggest to turn their business around?

1.
To get more people to use their ski resort. Get more people to come to the lodge who do not ski. Advertise what they have to offer that is not skiing; restaurants, bars, tubing, Mt Biking, Camping, Hiking, etc. If they do not have things beside skiing they need to add them.
