Ski area La Forêt Blanche

With the lift pass "La Forêt Blanche" you have access to the pistes of Vars and Risoul, which form the mutual ski area of La Forêt Blanche. The name is programme in this case: the "white forest", as it is named in French, offers 185 km of diverse piste and winter sports fun in front of a wonderful wintry backdrop.

The ski area is accessible from directly above the individual villages and is ideal for families and beginners with it's many blue and red pistes. La Forêt Blanche was even awarded the Les Petits Montagnards for it's family-friendliness. The little ones will find e.g. the slope towards Vars Sainte Marie enjoyable, a 3.4 km long piste named Olympique which begins at the peak of La Mayt. Also the areas around around the Homme de Pierre and Mont Mayt are ideal for practising the first swings in the snow. But also the more experienced will find what they are looking for in La Forêt Blanch. A real treat is the high-speed track Les Vautours, which hosts the traditional high-speed race Kilomètre Lancé in a gorge just below the Chabrières.

Freeride fans will enjoy the terrain around L'Eyssina. Snowboarder should rather turn towards Risoul, as they will find the "Surfland" here, which is one of Europe's largest snow parks and even offers a 150 km long, illuminated half-pipe. In Vars is another great fun park, which provides 8 ha of area and a practice lift for beginners.
