Two articles in this open issue focus on ski resorts in the USA and how they can respond to climate change: one presents a voluntary environmental program for large resorts, the other analyzes climate change impacts and adaptation action. A comprehensive review of literature on adaptation action in mountain areas worldwide emphasizes the need to close the adaptation gap in mountains. Further articles present a scoping review of irrigation systems in the Upper Indus Basin; investigate environmental attitudes and perceptions of runners competing in an ultramarathon in the highlands of Iceland; and analyze the shear strength of purple topsoil under different land uses in the Three Gorges Reservoir area in China.

The issue is available online and open access:
