Ski rental Risoul
Set in one of the largest connected areas of the region, at 1850m above sea level, Risoul offers privileged access to the ski slopes. The typical mountain architecture of Risoul has been preserved (buildings and chalets covered with wooden shingles, perfectly integrated into the larch forest), thanks to the work of renowned architect Ricardo Bofill. One of the main assets of the resort is its view: from Risoul and its ski area you can admire the surrounding mountains, from Alpes-Maritimes to Haute-Savoie, from the Ecrins mountain range to Queyras regional park and Mont-Viso at Mont-Blanc. The resort has also received the Famille Plus Montagne label, a significant advantage for traveling families. The ski area of la Forêt Blanche will open from December to April.
