La Forêt Blanche Ski area

Presentation

Great skiing with a southern accent


Risoul and Vars, the two sisters with a southern accent, share a vast larch forest facing a horizon of tangled peaks. A happy union that satisfies gourmet skiers, eager for wide open spaces, ready to do battle with the mountains.
Risoul and Vars created the Domaine de la Forêt Blanche in 1990 by linking their respective slopes. The estate owes its name to the many larches that cover it up to an altitude of 2200m.
In the heart of the Guillestrois, this area is defined above all as a mountain country. And shelters for lovers of skiing an exceptional potential!

Wanna see how ?
Ski area la Forêt Blanche: a promising name to illustrate one of the most beautiful areas in the Southern Alps. Take a map and find better! The symphony will be played to the rhythm of quivering spatulas, in often abundant and mild snow.
 
Words, words? No, the facts are there, the dry and cold climate makes it possible to preserve the quality of the snowpack, the brief and abundant falls always give way to the pure and blue sky of the Guillestrois. “Since the warming, (explains Gilles Favier, ski manager at Risoul), contradictorily, we have suffered less from the lack of snow. The southern slopes are certainly less snow-covered, on the other hand the northern slopes are favorably. Large falls are less frequent, however, in favor of many small falls. Risoul remains one of the best watered southern resorts in the region ”.
