Read the Harvard Business Review Case Study: Blue Mountain Resorts Limited: The Night Skiing Decision.

In this case study, a large Ontario ski resort faces a decision about whether to invest in facilities for night skiing. Demand is very uncertain, so the management undertakes a market research study. Day skiers at the facility are surveyed about their potential interest during the months of February and March.

    • Evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of each alternative.

  5. Decisions and Implementation

    • Propose a solution to the problem.

    • Defend your proposed solution by citing information from the case and our textbook or from other knowledge that you have gained from your experience or research; be as specific as possible.
