Adventure sports centers – ranging from rock climbing gyms to resort-based canopy tours and ziplines – have come to rely on SFA’s extensive business modeling expertise. Our Sports Facilities Advisory adventure sports feasibility studies have been utilized by developers of high-end adventure resorts, skiing businesses, fishing operations, whitewater rafting centers, zipline canopy tour operations, and other outdoor and adventure travel operations. From canoes and kayaks to skis and snowboards, we share a passion for adventure and have the tools to properly plan and evaluate these exciting business opportunities.
An independently researched feasibility study for an adventure sports complex is often the first step of turning an idea into a full-fledged facility. These feasibility studies are designed to support major funding decisions and provide clients with access to SFA’s vast experience in financing and planning these unique endeavors. Additionally, a large number of banks, equity firms, and Small Business Administration (SBA) lending sources have come to require an SFA-produced feasibility study. That is because our process has become the gold standard for adventure sports business planning.
Following your session we will conduct the necessary research, define preliminary construction and start-up costs, analyze and document cash flow, and evaluate the opportunity in your marketplace. In most cases this process requires 7-12 weeks from our initial planning session. Our clients find this feasibility study process energizing and educational, and they tell us that the process opens their eyes to opportunities and realities they had not previously considered.
With SFA you can be assured that we will only progress your project to the funding phase if we believe it has strong potential. Additionally, you can count on SFA to produce a highly customized feasibility studies and financial forecast where we seek solutions to challenges and work closely with you to get your facility concept aligned to the market demand. We will also provide recommendations to enhance programming and revenue through the introduction of camps, clinics, special events, recreation amenities, or other proven programs.
