Far southeast of Grenoble and east of Gap, the Foret Blanche Ski Domaine has 185km of pistes served by 50 lifts with a maximum vertical descent of 1,370m (4,500 feet). This family-friendly ski domaine links the villages of Vars and Risoul. While it is known for its reliable snow, it is also known for having many old, slow lifts. It's also known for its beginner and intermediate pistes, along with having six terrain parks. Keep in mind that the black pistes are really reds that just haven't been regularly groomed.

When you are ready for some nightlife, the best option is the Relex Club or Le Morgan in Risoul.

Note: the villages of Vars and Risoul are located along way from the nearest airport in Lyon resulting in long transfer times.

Overall, Vars-Risoul is the 35th most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 47 snowboarding resorts in France.
