This paper aims to provide detailed analysis of the impact of climate change on winter sport tourism in European regions. The analysis considers "impact" as the combined effect of exposure to climate change stimuli and economic sensitivity of the winter tourism sector. Using this framework, a new methodology is developed that adds a spatial dimension to the framework and enables the identification of the regions whose winter sport tourism is likely to be significantly affected by climate change.
