Risoul shares about half of the expansive Forêt Blanche ski area with its neighbouring village, Vars. With interconnected lifts and trails, adventurers can easily traverse the peaks, immersing themselves in diverse terrains throughout the day. Named after the snowy larch forests, this area boasts abundant tree-lined skiing and expansive vistas of the stunning Guil Valley from the open slopes higher up. The piste map is filled with a mix of blue and red runs, catering to both beginners and intermediate skiers, while also offering challenges for the more seasoned pros.
Evidently designed with skiers in mind, the accommodations are conveniently situated close to the lifts, granting easy access to the array of restaurants and bars lining the base of the slopes. Its compact size makes navigation effortless, particularly beneficial for families with young ones. Although the après-ski scene leans more toward indulging in delightful cuisine rather than pulsating club beats, there are a couple of go-to spots for those seeking a lively atmosphere.
Beyond skiing, the resort offers a diverse range of activities for all tastes. Thrill-seekers can revel in the toboggan track and zipline, zipping through the trees with exhilaration. For a more serene experience, the Skiseo leisure centre provides a scenic swimming option, complemented by the tranquil offerings at Pause Ô Spa. Additionally, classic winter pastimes like ice skating and dog sledging add to the array of off-slope adventures available.
