Introduction

Skylark Drone Research, a member of the National Ski Areas Association, is conducting a survey to gather opinions on the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV’s) known as drones by resorts offering skiing/snowboarding/mountain biking and other activities.

Participants in the study will be provided with a copy of the final report.

       Responses will remain anonymous and confidential.
       Results will only be presented in the aggregate.
       Companies will not be named.
