Found Risoul to be the most underrated place I have visited. Never waited more than a couple of minutes for any lift. We were also spoilt by the very good snowfalls that preceded our stay. The ski area offers a great selection of runs and the linked resort of Vars is easily reached and well worth visiting, something I did daily. I found it best to go to the sunny slopes of Vars in the morning and Risoul in the afternoon.
