Visitor Reviews of Vars
Peter Pigeon from Canada writes:
As a retired Canadian who has skied many resorts in many countries, Vars is one of my favourites.
No pushy, loud, crowds found further north. Friendly, comfortable with a great variety of runs and challenges for all levels of skier. Hassle free!
I love the feel of the place. It has soul. I still ski the top rated resorts in multiple countries despite the mob, but always find time to return to enjoy the focus of Vars. Skiing!
