    Today French ski resorts are subjected to deep mutations, linked to customers changes, climatic change and management difficulties. In order to cope with these uncertainties, the representation of the ski-resorts can no longer be exclusively centred on the snow product but must take into account a territorial approach. Based on the analyses of districts, ski resorts are perceived as local tourist systems, underlining the weight of institutional and cultural factors in their organisation. In particular, the emergence of a tourism atmosphere is based on the formalization of proximities between actors, organisational proximity and a cognitive proximity too. The articulation of these proximities varies over time and their nature illustrates malfunctions in the organization of ski resorts. This dynamic approach of specific patterns and evolution of the ski resorts, highlights both their opportunities and structural challenges.
