Decision in case concerning tender for concession for skiing activities at Sugarloaf Ice Cap

Together with Qeqqata Municipality, the Government of Greenland has decided not to grant any tourism concessions in connection with the tender for concessions for skiing activities at Sugarloaf Ice Cap north of Maniitsoq in Qeqqata Municipality.

The decision is based on an overall assessment concluding that, based on the expected level of activity, the grant of an exclusive concession to skiing activities in the area is deemed not to result in a significant increase of activities. In the Government of Greenland's assessment, tourism concessions, and thus exclusive rights to provide specific tourism products in a specific area, should generally only be granted if the grant of a concession is deemed to result in a significant increase of the activities and investments in the area.
