Climate change is, and will continue, to have profound implications for mountain and snow sports tourism. Highly dependent on climate-sensitive natural resources and landscapes, activities such as skiing, snowmobiling, and mountaineering face challenges, as observed temperature change (mean and extremes) in North America is projected to continue warming, along with strong declines in glaciers and snow cover. This presentation will highlight the results from several Canadian and US research projects that have used downscaled climate change scenarios and stakeholder surveys (tourists, athletes, coaches) to explore the differential climate risks and opportunities for key winter sports markets, including the Olympic Winter Games. Important knowledge gaps and research priorities will be offered to help advance climate action and aid the transition to a net-zero future.
