RESORT

 

Vars is a cozy winter sports center located in the French department of the High Alps at an altitude of 1750 m above sea level. This place offers a variety of varied ski runs of various levels of difficulty and 6 snow parks! This real paradise for amateurs of white madness is known in the world among others from the very steep Chabrieres ski track (max. 98%, angle close to 45 °), where Simone Origone broke his own world record in downhill skiing in 2015, reaching a speed of 252,632 km / h! Thanks to the extensive and wonderfully maintained database of snowparks, the resort has been hosting the most famous freeride and freestyle disciplines for many years, both skiers and snowboarders.

 

When writing about Vars, one should not forget about Risoul, located at an altitude of 1850 m above sea level. Both resorts combine not only the lifts and a shared pass, but also the term Domaine de la Foret Blanche. This means & #8222; White Forest Area & #8221; derived from the specific microclimate & #8211; incoming masses of moist and warm air from the Mediterranean, often causing huge snowfalls and forests rising to a height of 2500 m above sea level! These factors affect the very long persistence of large layers of snow, and the season lasts here until the last days of April. Together, both stations form an area covering 180 km of routes of varying difficulty. Interestingly, the slopes in Vars have southern exposure, so they are famous for the sun, and in Risoul the northern one, thanks to which fresh snow stays longer after precipitation.

 

Life in Vars is calm, but full of charming restaurants and small bars.
