Abstract | Full Text

Law regulations are external determinants of any entity functioning on the market, so their changes have direct economic consequences for each enterprise or institution. In the paper an attempt was made to estimate results of implementation of the Act of 18 August 2011 on Safety and Rescue in the Mountains and the Organized Ski Areas for Polish ski resorts. The methodology suggested in the paper seems to be of a universal character, it offers the calculation of additional costs resulting from legal regulation per capacity of ski resort (€ per year/1,000 persons capacity). So it may be a tool to analyze the consequences for the competitiveness of any European ski resort. The results for Polish ski resorts reveal that the new regulations imposed by the Act of 18 August 2011 have generated additional costs for a resort of approximately 1,000 €/year/1,000 persons capacity.
