The primary aim of this study is to explore the feasibility of mountain resorts as sustainable year-round tourism destinations. To meet this aim, two studies were conducted. Firstly, an examination of the supply side perspective of mountain resort operations was seen as a useful starting point in determining the desire for and ability to provide year-round offerings at one resort in Victoria, Australia. Secondly, we explored international examples of mature mountain resorts that have evolved from single season resorts to year-round destinations.
