SEPPYO Journal of Japanese Society of Snow and Ice,
Winter tourism, which typically focusses on skiing, is assumed to be one of the few viable industries that contribute to the economy of cold and mountainous areas. Possible global warming can pose a major threat to the economy of hilly and mountainous areas having an impact on skiing industry. Firstly the onsite expenditure of ski visitors was compared to gross regional products in Japan. Secondly the impact of global warming on onsite expenditure by ski visitors was projected based on scenarios of temperature and precipitation variations.
