Vars is much quieter than its neighbour, Risoul. The resort is well maintained and has a friendly atmosphere. There is a good variety of restaurants, bars and shops to choose from and these remain lively all day as skiers and snowboarders stop off for a break, and they continue to be the centre of activity after the lifts close and into the evening.
The pistes remain relatively quiet throughout the season and there is a great variety of wide, sunny slopes to steep descents through the treeline. Vars is the perfect place for families and mixed-ability groups looking for an affordable holiday that does not compromise on experience.
