Skiing area : Vars and Risoul share the Forêt Blanche ski area

Vars and Risoul share the Forêt Blanche ski area, a vast larch forest and 185 km of marked ski runs ; it is one of the largest and most beautiful ski areas in the Southern Alps.

Vars is known worldwide for its legendary speed ski slope Chabrière, the fastest in the world (record 252.454 km/h with a maximum percentage of 98%), and Vars Park, one of Europe’s most remarkable snowparks with seven areas, and two boardercross courses. Vars consist of four villages: Saint-Marcellin, Sainte-Marie, Sainte-Catherine and Les Claux, the centre of the resort.

As the saying goes, Risoul is the most intimate of the big resorts. Apart from the white slopes it offers a gentle and pleasant ambiance, slate roofs,wooden cladding and mountain stone as you can see at the Tourist Office and the Espace Rencontre 1850, two major building of the resort.

The resort has recently changed it management to the Labellemontagne Group and focuses on big sports events : the 2014 Tour de France, and the 2016 Giro d’Italia.
