Project deliverable Open Access
As a result of the research and work done during the project, the team involved in this case study has developed a prototype of a service which may be replicated in other ski resorts in Northern Finland, but also in Southern Finland where conditions are close to the critical or minimum ones throughout the year. As a wrap up of the activities implemented in the past years, the team of this case study of Blue-Action organized an online regional dissemination workshop on 2 October 2020, “SnowApp-ilmastopalvelu lumetuksen ennakoinnin tukena hiihtokeskuksille ja muille talvimatkailutoimijoille”, targeting regional operators in the winter tourism industry in Finland.
The main goal of the webinar was to present the main results of the case study and in particular the work done on the implementation of the SnowApp, the climate service application for snowmaking, its interface, and the advantages for regional operators in using the SnowApp.
The audience consisted of several participants representing the winter tourism industry, particularly ski resorts, and decision-makers, but also regional developers and tourism researchers from Northern Finland.
