The resort

Amongst the bountiful powder and not far from the elegance and grandeur of Turin, the former base for the 2006 Winter Olympics is an ideal platform for beginners, intermediates and snowboarders. There are a handful of snow parks, a speed skating area and several links to the remarkable Risoul slopes. Plus, nursery runs will keep the little ones smiling.

Speed demons

Slice down the mountainside on the Risoul routes, tree-lined trails or enjoy a spot of speed skating. Things get so fast through Vars that the quick-paced pistes are often nicknamed ‘motorways’. You can whizz off where you fancy, too – 59 ski lifts ensure that queuing will be kept to a minimum.

Tremendous terrain

Seasoned pros will find much more to get stuck into off-piste. Seven terrain parks and 10km of cross country routes will pose challenges for freestylers. You’ll have so many opportunities to perfect your snowboard grips, but there are kicks, rails and mogul fields, too.

Getting around

If Turin is beckoning and you wouldn’t mind a day off the snow, go in search of sumptuous restaurants, modern boutiques and towering architectural showstoppers. It’s a city famed for football and blocks of chocolate. Stay local as well – French-style Vars resort has two shopping parades, lively bars for evening relief, a superb spa and even things like ice climbing facilities.

The highlights

  • There are seven snow parks for off-piste daredevils.
  • 180km of downhill ski with few queues for lifts.
  • Serviced by Turin, a gorgeous Italian city teeming with character and in need of exploring.
