40 years of winter sports : the hidden face of data ?

Winter sports are at a turning point. In order to be able to envisage the future, it is important to understand the history and the fundamental mechanics. By bringing together several sets of data, some unpublished and others little used in this context, we will explain the short- and medium-term evolution of the rate of French people going to winter sports. We cover a period of more than 4 decades, and will evaluate the impact of the major trends and events that have marked the era and society. By taking various and sometimes surprising angles, we will use the explanatory factors to project ourselves into the future.
