“Project Kids” is a cooperative, multi-year industry-wide initiative. There are five tactics that play the central role in the development and success of the program:

1. Entertainment ( and Snow Lab TV - in cooperation with Nickelodeon)
2. Public Relations ("Winter Feels Good" - campaign) - branded PR campaign that is designed to promote the message of health, fitness and social benefits of winter sports to kids and parents
3. Marketing (internet, TV and print ads that drive the target audience to the dedicated kids snow sport portal
4. The experience (the goal is to work with partners to develop an effective introduction at the retail, rental, instruction and on-hill levels)
5. Conversion (Snow Monsters program to retain the interest of kids who participated; NSAA, USSA and SIA along with more than 70 ski resorts have forged a partnership with Snow Monsters to help package, distribute and promote this valuable program to newcomers and returnees)
