The Alpine region is particularly sensitive to climate change. In recent decades, the mean snow line has risen by about 300 metres. According to moderate climate predictions, a further increase of 500-700 metres is expected during the rest of this century. (Müller & Weber, 2008). Compared to 1970, the winter season has been cut by roughly 37 days in recent years. Technical snowmaking is essential since the amount of snowy ski resorts will shrink by more than a half by the close of the century. Using snowmaking can decrease this percentage to 25% (Marty et al., 2017). These changes in weather conditions are significantly affecting Swiss ski resorts and, as a result, winter tourism - Pascale Josi, 2018.
