Description: This study explores the concept that ethnic groups have different motivations and crowding norms when downhill skiing and that visiting and immigrant ethnic groups would respond more like their original ethnic group than they would be like their host ethnic group. The four ethnic groups or sampling strata that were surveyed in this study were: White Anglo skiers at Hunter Mountain Ski Area; Korean skiers at Hunter Mountain Ski Area; White Anglo skiers at Yong Pyeong Ski Resort; and Korean skiers at Yong Pyeong Ski Resort. The total sample was 1,157 skiers for the four sampling strata. Eight hypotheses were tested to explore what affect the ethnic differences of skiers had on motivations for skiing and crowding norms for White and Korean skiers in New York State and Korea. Discriminant analysis was used to predict group classification in the four sampling strata based on the eight variables used in the hypotheses testing.
