- The first gateway: http://www.canadatourism.com/
is the Canadian Tourism homepage. It leads to the CTX Business
Centre or to the Partner link which has a section on successful
winter tourism stories.
- The second gateway site: http://www.cotr.bc.ca/
connects to the Rocky Mountain Institute for Tourism, Leisure
& Recreation. This site connects to the libraries of many
institutions across BC.
- The final gateway site: http://www.icimod.org.sg/
connects to the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development.
It leads to links related to mountain development, which can be
relevant to winter tourism.
- To get information about sustainable development in the mountain
regions across the globe, the Mountain Forum web site - http://www.mtnforum.org/ - is very useful.
It also gives access to links about recreation, community, development,
environment, on-line libraries, research and other mountain related
topics that can be associated with winter tourism.
- This web site: http://www.saminfo.com/
is the Ski Area Management (SAM) magazine home site. It allows
users to find articles in the SAM archives and also gives access
to the SAM research centre. It is a valuable web site for researchers
interested in the ski industry.
