Discover the stuff of sustainable winter dreams

Winter and ski tourism in Europe is particularly hard hit by the effects of climate change. Here, average temperatures during the season have recently increased by around 0.3 % every ten years. Today, experts assume that by 2050 the snow depth at medium altitudes will decrease by around 40 %. Therefore, the existence of numerous winter sports is threatened.

High time to do something about it – and preferably sustainably. Because climate change is also accompanied by a change in awareness: More and more ski tourists are aware of the importance of sustainability. Especially when it comes to sustainable slope and snow management…
