Abstract: 

Sports that depend on the geographical resources and attractions are considered the most important in sport tourism. One of the tourism events in the recent years is skiing which has the highest income in tourism industry and has therefore caused even many small communities to take action to invest in this sector as an attractive tourism destination. This study assessed the possibility of establishing recreation-sport ski site in Isfahan province using a combination of Boolean Logic and Decision Making Trial and Evaluation Laboratory (DEMATEL) methods in a geographical information system (GIS) environment. Boolean logic was used for examining the sub-criteria of the climate and geology and also for investigating the main criteria interactions such as geology, climate and accessibility. The results of the study showed that the greatest area and the density of the appropriate zone is located in the western part of the province. In these zones, especially in the cities and regions of Semirom, Frieden and Fereidunshahr, the land form is appropriate; the possibility of rain and snow durability is more than that in other regions of the province. Therefore, the western region has the potential to be as a skiing resort considering every aspects.
