The impact of climate variability on tourism businesses in Wanaka and Queenstown
This report summarises the findings from 27 operator interviews in Wanaka and Queenstown (June 2010). The main goal of the interviews was to identify which climatic factors are relevant to the different kinds of tourism businesses and how sensitive the businesses’ operation and economic viability are to specific conditions. Interviewees were also asked about the measures they put in place to deal with favourable or adverse weather conditions. The focus of the interviews was on the winter season, but relevant information on summer activities was included as well.
