ISBN: OCLC Number: Notes: Text in English and French with French text on inverted pages. Title on added t.p.: Répercussions d'un changement climatique sur l'industrie du ski alpin au Québec. The pioneering studies regarding climate change impacts on downhill skiing appeared in Canada, North America, such as the research undertaken in Quebec region by McBoyle and by: 5.

The objectives of this study are twofold. First, building on the recommendation of Scott et al. () this study will re-examine the implications of projected climate change for the ski industry of southern Québec with a methodology that fully incorporates snowmaking and that utilizes the most recent climate change scenarios available from the IPCC () for the periods of the s ( Cited by: Winter tourism has seen increased levels of investment in recent times, in an effort to reduce economic risk, address environmental concerns and adapt to the effects of global warming.

New ski destinations are developing and merging with traditional ones to increase spatial distribution, while many established leading resorts are adapting their management models.

Climate change. A vast climate study is predicting the ski season in southern Quebec will shorten dramatically – perhaps by as much as half – over the coming three decades, with even sharper changes in store. Climate change and Quebec's ski industry for tourism and evaluating the implications of climate change for ski resorts and the responses of the main Alpine ski resorts of the Catalan.

For example, the impact of climate change is stronger at low altitudes, in inner-alpine dry valleys and on southern slopes, which leads to winners and losers among the different ski areas.

Facing climate change: Meet Mr. Snow and his fabric ski slopes Warmer winters in many parts of the world are increasingly becoming a headache for communities in regions that have long. Winter recreation is an important part of the cultural identity of the Northeast United States and is a multibillion dollar contributor to the regional economy.

This study examined the vulnerability of the two largest winter recreation industries, snowmobiling and alpine skiing, to four climate change scenarios for the twenty-first century.

Alpine skiing and snowboarding are great ways to spend time in the mountains during the most unforgiving season of the year. In order to be able to offer this, ski resorts rely on a complex and energy-demanding infrastructure, with scores of employees and heavy use of water.

Skiing heavily relies on specific weather and environmental conditions to make participation both feasible and enjoyable. The lack of published research on the relationships among ski activity, weather, and climate is, therefore, surprising, especially in light of mounting evidence regarding climate change.

For all ski resorts in China and all climate change scenarios, average ski seasons are projected to shorten (− 4 to − 61% RCP ; − 6 to − 79% RCP in the s) while snowmaking needs increase (27 to 51% RCP ; 46 to 80% RCP in the s). Climate Change in the European Alps: Adapting Winter Tourism and Natural Hazards Management is the product of a two year study by the OECD Environment Directorate.

The report presents the first systematic cross-country analysis of snow-reliability of Alpine ski areas under climate change for five countries in the region: France. Climate change impact assessments of winter recreation have almost exclusively concentrated on alpine ski industry, overlooking the potentially greater vulnerability of other winter recreation sectors of large economic value.

This study presents an empirical assessment of the potential impact of climate change on the multi-billion dollar recreational snowmobiling industry in Canada.
