In recent years, resilience theory has come to occupy the core of our understanding and management of the adaptive capacity of people and places in complex social and environmental systems. Despite this, tourism scholars have been slow to adopt resilience concepts, at a time when the emergence of new frameworks and applications is pressing. Drawing on original empirical and theoretical insights in resilience thinking, this book explores how tourism communities and economies respond to environmental changes, both fast (natural hazard disasters) and slow (incremental shifts). It explores how tourism places adapt, change, and sometimes transform (or not) in relation to their environmental context, with an awareness of intersection with societal dynamics and links to political, economic and social drivers of change. Contributions draw on empirical research conducted in a range of international settings, including indigenous communities, to explore the complexity and gradations of environmental change encounters and resilience planning responses in a range of tourism contexts. As the first book to specifically focus on environmental change from a resilience perspective, this timely and original work makes a critical contribution to tourism studies, tourism management and environmental geography, as well as environmental sciences and development studies.

“Where did you come from?” “How did you get here?” These questions came from people who had not seen black skiers before. “Black people can’t endure cold temperatures”, is a myth that has been held by Caucasians and some black people. Black skiers enjoy gliding, sliding and riding on the cold and snowy mountains. The myths that black people don’t ski and that black people are too lazy to learn will be dispelled. There are countless stories of their experiences on the snowy mountains, their volunteer services, networking, finding love, and the friendships over the years.
