La gestion des risques dans les stations de sports d'hiver françaises : prise en compte de la demande sociale pour la mise en place d'une gouvernance sécuritaire

Abstract : People in charge of safety in alpine ski resorts have to account for the numerous different sports performed in their ski areas. Apart from the running of the ski-lifts, preventive safety measures are focused on the natural environment and the behaviour of the practicing sportsman which are generally considered as the main sources of danger. However, empirical studies conducted in light of analysis and management of risk and the theoretical interpretation of these would suggest a need for a wider view of reality. It is the aim of the present study to give an in-depth understanding of the risk-related ski-resort activities from the practicing sportsmen's point of view (coping with risk, dealing with danger in situ. their opinion on how to adopt collective regulation, etc.) and to define the relationship between the clientele and the acting persons responsible. More specifically, a theoretical frame is proposed to describe the management of risks in ski-resorts. This model was developed with the help of an questionnaire carried out on practicing sportsmen concerned.
