Ski resort Information

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.


Ski area focus

Directly linked to the great ski area of la Forêt Blanche, the resort of Risoul has easy access to 116 marked trails totaling 185 km spread across nearly 900m of undulating terrain. From the top of the slopes, the panorama is breathtaking! The high altitude provides good snow cover, and snow canons covering 55% of the area fill in any gaps to ensure optimum conditions for skiers. The 51 ski lifts in Risoul enable a return ski to the resort door. Between large open areas and forests of larches, skiers can twist and turn on beautiful, perfectly arranged tracks. There are also 17km of Nordic ski runs, as well as a slalom trail, beginners' area and two toboggan runs to multiply the fun. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced skier, la Forêt Blanche ski area offers many possibilities.


Off-ski activities

Always lively and incredibly friendly, the resort of Risoul is full of activities of all kinds even if you don't feel confident skiing. Why not try a paragliding adventure to get an overview of the stunning landscapes - everything looks so different from the air! Slip on some snowshoes or jump on a snowmobile to discover or rediscover the beautiful forests of larches in a magical atmosphere. If you are passionate about history, you will not be disappointed by the cultural richness of the region. Guided tours of historic sites and artisan workshops are a real highlight, telling the history of Hautes-Alpes from key landmarks. The resort is also home to many restaurants and charming mountain shops. Don't forget to check the program of organized activities during your stay in beautiful Risoul so you don't miss out!
