Winter sports resorts’ strategies to adapt to climate change

How do global changes influence the trajectory of winter sports resorts and their future? What local responses are made in different regions of the world according to historical contexts and specific resources? Based on an interdisciplinary reading of a vast repertoire of cases located in Europe, North America, Asia and Oceania, the book brings together a panel of international reference authors who present their latest work. Their contributions put into perspective many forms of adaptation to climate, economic, social and cultural transformations. This innovative approach, which combines environmental and societal issues, will be of interest to all observers and players in the winter sports sector.
