Abstract : A November 19 1960 French decree gave birth to an interministerial committee dedicated to mountains development. This committee initiated a national policy of touristic development so as to bring more modernity to mountain territories. In the Oisans area, local stakeholders, on the grounds of their own survival, while looking for economic reorientation, agree with this vision as a real identity lobby, through a quest for leisure infrastructures. Controversies about mountain sacking seem to be erased by each village’s hope to become a place dedicated to winter sports. However, both the two rapidly expanding big tourist spots and the national park project bring us to question this uneven dynamic. By analysing the 1960s local press on Oisans’ scale, this article offers to explore, in a historical way and through the prism of the innovation concept, the process through which sports practice, stakeholders and areas interact to bring new territorial realities to life.
