Skiing in Risoul
A purpose built resort, set on a plateau and linked with the ski resort of Vars giving access to 55 ski lifts and 180km of skiing in the area called the "Foret Blanche". Like many of the southern alps resorts Risoul is known for being a sunny resort although at 1850 it is high enough to ensure a good snow cover for the winter season.
