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.

Substitution between Tourism Destinations: An Application of Discrete Choice Modelling – Short-break Choices of Sydney (Stage 1) & Melbourne (Stage 2) Residents

Comments Off on Substitution between Tourism Destinations: An Application of Discrete Choice Modelling – Short-break Choices of Sydney (Stage 1) & Melbourne (Stage 2) Residents

In this study, discrete choice modelling is applied to destination choices. A nested logit model is estimated and the results show the relative importance of various destination and trip attributes and of a number of respondent characteristics. The model results are used to simulate the effects on destinations’ market shares due to changes in attributes and tourists’ characteristics.
