Now You Can Earn a College Degree On the Slopes
Earn your B.S. on the slopes with Castleton University and Killington Mountain Resort
Starting this fall, Castleton University students will be able to complete an accelerated, three-year Bachelor of Science degree in Resort Hospitality Management through a combination of traditional classes and working paid positions at Killington and Pico Mountains. The new program replaces a prior one established in 2001 by Green Mountain College called the Killington School of Resort Management, which announced in late January that it will close at the end of the 2018-2019 academic year.
The program will be housed in a new College of Business at Castleton University. When operated by Green Mountain College, the program reported a 99 percent employment rate for its graduates, 35 of whom currently work at Killington Mountain Resort. —A.G.
