This work is based on tourist perceptions of the environmental quality of Piedmont’s ski resorts. This paper also reviews the literature of the relationship between a skiing station and climate change. To achieve these main goals, this study involved 1,270 tourists who answered a questionnaire through a semi-structured interview technique, measuring the individual evaluation/orientation of the tourists regarding affirmations (items) on a Likert scale. The data analysis shows that the feedback from the tourists on aspects such as air quality, the landscape, the relationship between the buildings and surrounding landscape was satisfactory. Meanwhile, there has been difficulty in obtaining an opinion for some items, such as the consumption of water that is used to produce artificial snow or for electromagnetic pollution, therefore, these items fall into the category ―don’t know/no answer‖.

Abstract

This work is based on tourist perceptions of the environmental quality of Piedmont’s ski resorts. This paper also reviews the literature of the relationship between a skiing station and climate change. To achieve these main goals, this study involved 1,270 tourists who answered a questionnaire through a semi-structured interview technique, measuring the individual evaluation/orientation of the tourists regarding affirmations (items) on a Likert scale. The data analysis shows that the feedback from the tourists on aspects such as air quality, the landscape, the relationship between the buildings and surrounding landscape was satisfactory. Meanwhile, there has been difficulty in obtaining an opinion for some items, such as the consumption of water that is used to produce artificial snow or for electromagnetic pollution, therefore, these items fall into the category ―don’t know/no answer‖.
