As soon as the Vanoise National Park was created in 1963, Aussois joined the Park and granted it a few hectares in order to participate in the protection of this mountain environment which is its own. Before being a mountain resort, Aussois is indeed a mountain village surrounded by a preserved nature. It is also a land of agriculture. Cows and sheep contribute to the maintenance of the landscape and the agricultural activity remains important in the village, in particular for the production of cheeses, including the famous Beaufort. Here, each inhabitant is concerned about his or her place of life and the commune does everything possible to preserve what makes its richness: its exceptional environment.
