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.

For example have you considered Cavalese in Italy? - The Cavalese ski resort is an unspoiled medieval town in Val di Fiemme, with lifts up to the Alpe Cermis slopes. Part of the fabulously scenic Trentino region, this area deserves to be better known on the UK market. Or perhaps as a possible alternative suggestion how about Saas-Fee in Switzerland? - Saas Fee chalet rentals enjoy an attractive, purpose-built resort set in a sunny position, with spectacular views and a small area of intermediate slopes.
