Abstract

The recent polarised arguments between conservationists and the pro-skiing lobby over the proposed Cairngorm Funicular railway have raised amongst other issues the 'value for money' of public investment in the Scottish skiing industry. This paper considers the economic impact of Scottish ski centres, to the Highlands and Islands Enterprise (H.I.E) area. The justification for and estimated contribution of public investment in the Scottish skiing industry is outlined in the second section. The economic impact of Scottish ski centres on the H.I.E economy is outlined in section three. The final fourth section draws some tentative conclusions about the prudence of public sector funding of the Scottish skiing industry.
