Abstract: 

Introduction: Climate have strong impact on tourism and leisure time. Climate as a natural environmental factor plays an important role in tourism development in different regions of the world. Climate change and global warming, due to increasing greenhouse gases have many effects on procedure of tourism areas. Evaluation of predictions on future climate change can reduce these effects on tourism industry. Unfortunately, despite the obvious importance of climate change on tourism, researchers have paid little attention to this topic until the 1980s. Thus, one of the oldest researches in this region is the examination about the impacts of carbon dioxide on earth warming and its effects on tourism (skiing Laavrntyds area) discussed by Boyle and Wall. This research has been done in Canada in 1980. In this study, climate change phenomenon has been examined using two scenarios A and B. The effect of climate change on snow condition, snow cover of the region, and ski industry were examined. The results show that this phenomenon has impact on the ski industry and shorten duration of the ski season. It should be noted that among researches carried out, a few of the issues of climate change was about the effects of climate change on tourism activities.
