La culture, vecteur de développement des territoires touristiques et sportifs

Abstract : The study of the tourist stations of nature constitutes a remarkable object of study for better understanding the way in which the territory takes part in the production of a cultural system localised (SCL). Indeed, if the economic function of these commercial organizations consists in producing richness for the contractors proposing of multiple services to the tourists present on the sites, it seems reducing to conceive a tourist destination only like on simple aggregation of actors. The existence of a territorial anchoring that one can qualify locally makes it possible to think the presence of a cultural process which takes part largely in the constitution of resources useful for the correct operation of this unit. The step consists in showing the way in which this cultural system is built localised and how it takes form in a French station of mountain, the station of the Arcs in Savoy. The study of the forms of development installation by each person receiving benefits and of the sporting culture of the tourists makes it possible to better seize and understand the practical variation of these cultural resources on a site of practice.
