Vars, an authentic, traditional ski resort, with charm is one of the most southerly and sunny in the French Alps, but thankfully quite snowy too, due to its altitude and orientation. Part of the giant Foret Blanche region, shared with neighbouring Risoul, it remains predominantly French in attitude and clientele, while now reaching out to more international guests. You can choose between four separate villages, though most opt for the main purpose-built altitude base at Les Claux . is a large resort with 55 lifts (14 chair lifts, 40 surface lifts) that offers skiers an impressive 905 metres of vertical descent. Alongside Risoul, it makes the La Foret Blanche ski area. Vars has 64 pistes. Vars is best suited to beginner skiers and snowboarders but there is some terrain for both expert and intermediates. There are 45 kilometers of cross country ski trails at Vars. For snowboarders, there is a terrain park. The closest airport is at Marseille but the transfer time is 2.5 hours.
