In the Hautes Alpes, two ski resorts have combined together to form a ski area called La Forêt Blanche. If you like skiing in the trees this is the place for you!

Vars is the largest and most famous place of the two and consists of a combination of four small villages. Three of them are at an altitude of about 1650 meters. Risoul is a modern station and more suited to families.

Skiers can test their speed on the Kilomètre Lance, known as the fastest track in the world - see how fast you can go!

Surf Country, the largest snow park in Europe, with a fun park and a half pipe attracts snow-boarders and skiers alike and cross-country skiers find approximately 43 kilometers of trails.

To make it complete, there are various events held throughout the year so you will never get bored.

  • 180 kilometres of slopes
  • Area for beginner and advanced skiers
  • Plenty of non ski activities
