School Ski Trips to Vars

Why take your school trip to Vars?

Set in the southern French Alps just over 30km south of Briancon are the villages of Vars St Marie and Vars Le Claux. Both are linked into the extensive Foret Blanche ski area with its 185km of ski trails across 115 prepared pistes which in turn are served by 42 lifts not to mention 3 snow parks. The former is an authentic mountain village whilst Le Claux was purpose-built for skiing. Vars St Marie has 3 lifts serving the village along with a small nursery area for beginners. Vars Le Claux just 3km away has a larger nursery area and has a multitude of lifts. Our groups are based in St Marie and will use both nursery areas at the discretion of the ski school.
