The sun-drenched Vars and its ski area "La Forêt Blanche" is one of the most popular winter sports resorts in the southern Mediterranean Alps. The modern ski resort comprises 4 villages: St. Marcellin, St. Marie, St. Catherine and Les Claux - the whole resort is especially popular with families and children, as well young people. Due to it's altitude at 1,850 m, Vars belongs to those resorts in France with terrific snow conditions, in spite of the many hours of sunshine during winter. Freestylers will find great conditions here with a total number of six snow parks. Another once can be found in Risoul.

Or perhaps you might like to consider an alternative destination? For example have you considered Livigno in Italy? - The Livigno ski resort is a great combination of low prices thanks to its duty free status and high altitude that is relatively snow-sure, all set in a pleasant alpine ambience near to the Swiss border. Or perhaps as a possible alternative suggestion how about Crans Montana in Switzerland? - Renting one of our Crans Montana chalets? You can expect a big-town base with a fabulous panoramic view and sun-soaked slopes – hit it straight after a January dump if you can. [Less]
