Abstract [en]

This research note examines the changes in mountain tourism in Sweden during the last 20 years (1980-2000), asking in which areas mountain tourism is increasing or decreasing, what the changes in different activity participation rates are, and what might account for those changes. It is indicated that the southern-most county of the mountain region (Dalarna) had become the most popular location by the late 1990s. The increasing visits to this area close to the Swedish population centres may be related to the occurrence of shorter vacations and increased demand on people's time. Not only the geography of mountain visits is changing, but activities are changing as well. Downhill skiing (including snowboarding) had increased from 22% in the 1980s to 36% in the 1990s, while snowmobiling had increased from 9% in the 1980s to 16% in the 1990s.
