Abstract [en]

Climate change as a phenomenon will imply new risks for the ski industry. Intergovernmental Panal on Climate Change presents three future scenarios, during the periods between 1990-2100, in forms of increased temperatures, a rise in the sea level and seasonal variations, variables out of which two have direct impacts on the ski industry. The aim for this study was to explore and compare attitudes towards climate change between five ski resorts located in mid-south of Sweden. This was done through in depth interviews in both face to face and by telephone. The result of the study was that all the chosen ski resorts were aware of climate change as a phenomenon but have not yet recognized its consequences. All ski resorts use methods to maintain skiing i.e. artificial snow production though not because of climate change.

Abstract [sv]

Klimatförändringar som ett fenomen, kommer att innebära nya risker för skidindustrin. Intergovernmental Panal on Climate Change presenterar tre framtida scenarion, under perioden mellan 1990-2100, i form av ökade temperaturer, ökning av havsnivån och förändrade säsongsmönster, variablar av vilka två har direkta effekter på skidindustrin. Syftet med den här studien var att undersöka och jämföra attityder mot klimatförändringar mellan fem skiddestinationer lokaliserade i mellersta och södra Sverige. Det var gjort med djupgående intervjuer både på plats och per telefon. Resultatet av den här studien var att alla valda skiddestinationer var medvetna om klimatförändringar som ett fenomen, men är inte än helt övertygade om dess konsekvenser. Alla skiddestinationer använder sig av metoder för att bibehålla skidåkandet som produktion av konstsnö men detta görs inte på grund av klimatförändringar.
