Ski Resort Tycoon is a simulation game in which you have to make and control a Ski Resort.
The objective of Ski Resort Tycoon is to make money, in this instance by investing capital in a mountain ski resort and then building and managing numerous aspects revolving around the business such as infrastructure (including ski lifts, ski runs, and ski jump ramps), lodging, dining, entertainment, landscaping, maintenance and safety staff, guest amenities/customer satisfaction, etc. in order to turn a profit.
It can be played on one of three difficulty settings and features several modes of play. There is a tutorial mode that guides you through each step necessary to accomplish your goals. The "challenges" mode supplies a number of scenarios, each with specific mission objectives that must be met in order to successfully complete the scenario.
