        • E.g. 2500 people work as seasonal workers every year

    • SOCIAL IMPACTS
      • Types of jobs changed from farm labouring to jobs in restaurants and hotels
      • Tourist developments have increased the risk of avalanches - more deaths from avalanches, e,g, 12 people killed in 1999

      • Huge amount of energy used to run facilities for tourists - increases carbon dioxide emissions, global warming
