Global mountain tourism current and future conditions

bild incoming

Mountains are important assets for the tourism industry. They take up an estimated share of 15-20% of the global tourism market, generating between 100 and 140 billion US$ per year. The winter tourism is more developed but will decrease in the future. There will be less snow because of the global warming. The summer activities like hiking, climbing and mountain biking need to get more advertised. The mountain industry has to minimize the seasonal effect and diversify the supplies.
