AbstractIce, snow, and rime are wonders of the cold season in an alpine climate zone and climate landscape. With its pure, spectacular, and magical features, these regions attract numerous tourists. Ice and snow landscapes can provide not only visually-stimulating experiences for people, but also opportunities for outdoor play and movement. In China, ice and snow tourism is a new type of recreation; however, the establishment of snow and ice in relation to the suitability of the surrounding has not been clearly expressed. Based on multi-source data, such as tourism, weather, and traffic data, this paper employs the Delphi-analytic hierarchy process (AHP) evaluation method and a spatial analysis method to study the spatial differences of snow and ice tourism suitability in China. China's ice and snow tourism is located in the latitude from 35 degrees N to 53.33 degrees N and latitude 41.5 degrees N to 45 degrees N and longitude 82 degrees E to 90 degrees E, with the main focus on latitude and terrain factors. A poor fit is concentrated at latitude 20.45 degrees N to 35 degrees N and longitude 100 degrees E to 122 degrees E; the difference is that the latitude is low and affected by the Japanese warm current. The analysis of the suitability of ice and snow tourism can be employed as a reference for the development of ice and snow tourism.
