favourite ski resort is Risoul at 1850m and Vars at 1650m
making up ‘Le Forét Blanche’, which
has an excellent snow record until April. The two villages
have their own style. Risoul is a lively, typically French
ski station with friendly bars and clubs. Vars is much
bigger with lots more shops and bustle!
The ski area has
5 small valleys radiating from two peaks, each with it’s
own unique flavour providing 180 km of tree lined and open
sloped pistes up to 2750m. In between are numerous
deep gullies that provide endless off-piste runs that can
suit beginners and advanced skiers.
