Risoul ski holidays take you to a purpose built resort located on a plateau in the French Alps. At an altitude of eighteen hundred and fifty metres, and with lift to close to three thousand metres, Risoul has an enviable snow record and, being in the southern Alps, skiers can enjoy long hours of sunshine. Linked to Vars and part of  the Foret Blanche, skiers have access to one hundred and eighty kilometres of piste. Low cost Risoul ski holidays appeal to a wide audience as there are runs for all levels of proficiency in both skiing and boarding. It is a particularly family friendly resort with a designated children's area with a magic carpet lift. The fact that it is 'ski-in-ski-out' is an added bonus for parents. Wide nursery slopes for beginners are in the village centre and with tuition, novices will soon be enjoying gentle tree lined runs. Intermediates have a good choice of red and blue runs and there are great snow bowls above Risoul. The link with Vars provides a greater choice of more demanding runs. The experienced skier has challenging black runs and a variety of mogul fields that take them into Vars. They can also take advantage, with the help of a mountain guide, of the more testing off piste skiing. Risoul is a superb choice for boarders as there is a large well-equipped snow park as well as wide open pistes and snow bowls. There are forty five kilometres of trails for cross country skiers. Tuition is from the age of three for skiing and eight for boarding and there are creches for younger children.
