Ski Industry

WWE has been providing permitting and engineering services to the ski industry for more than 50 years. We have worked for many of the major resorts in Colorado and for resorts in Idaho, California and Montana for both on-mountain activities and base area developments.  In the 1960s, WWE handled water rights for Vail, followed by the design of the water system for Mid Vail and later for Lionshead.  The early Vail work was followed by numerous assignments involving virtually all aspects of surface water and groundwater engineering.  At a number of resorts, WWE has performed water quality monitoring to document baseline water quality and stream biological health and to monitor for impacts from construction and development.  Many of WWE’s staff members are skiers and snowboarders, giving us special familiarity with the on-mountain layout of many of the Colorado ski resorts.
