Situated at an altitude of 1,850 metres, at the very heart of the Hautes Alpes, Vars has become one of the most popular winter sports resorts in the Southern Alps. It stands alongside high mountain regions with surrounding summits reaching 3,000 metres (Massif des Ecrins and Queyras). Thanks to its high altitude and location, it is one of the most snow covered resorts in France and additionally benefits from the radiance of a Mediterranean climate.

Made up of four small mountain villages stretching the length of the Grandes Alpes road, Vars has combined authenticity and charm of its traditional villages with comfort of a large winter sports resort. Its natural heritage and mountain nature make Vars a special vacation location. Four shopping centres, almost a hundred specialist and varied shops, pleasant and festive meeting points all further add to the appeal.

The White Forest is a large area covering 180km, with 109 slopes and 50 ski-lifts. Such a large amount of variety and expanse of sporting area is on offer for the best skiing.

Whether you are with adults and kids, family or friends, you can take in the magnificent grandeur of the landscape offered by the White Forest, hurtle down the fresh snow covered slopes, or simply take time out in one of the high-altitude restaurants.
