Make business with snow

The businesses that can be based on snow are unlimited.
Today, there is several businesses up here in the north of Sweden that work with snow and use the renewable material snow as a resource. Some examples are skiing facilities, both downhill and cross-country, where the businesses prepare tracks for both tourists and professional skiers. Then we have testing facilities for vehicles and tires, where the testing entrepreneurs also prepare tracks for their customers with different snow types and different frictions. Another business that is actually arising is the movie-making up here in the North. We have really nice nature, which actually enables really nice scenery for movies. Then we also have specific businesses like Arctic Baths and the Ice Hotel that uses ice and cold climate for fantastic experience.
These are just examples of what businesses that can be connected to snow and ice. What can you take with you from this course if you would start a company that can use snow and ice as a resource?
