As soon as the Vanoise National Park was created in 1963, Aussois joined the Park and granted it a few hectares to help protect its mountain environment. Before being a mountain resort, Aussois was a mountain village surrounded by unspoilt nature. It's also a land of agriculture. Cows and sheep contribute to the upkeep of the landscape, and farming remains an important activity in the village, particularly for the production of cheeses, including the famous Beaufort. Here, every resident cares about his or her place of life, and the commune does everything in its power to preserve what makes it so rich: its exceptional environment.
