Lack of advertising to draw people to the resort. Maybe updated the resort, give out small discount, make it appealing etc.

Knowing that skiing is for active young people as well as an older crowd, I would use faces of different nationalities, age groups and I would definitely promote discount deals that would attract the younger population. I would advertise student deals etc.
