A sunny place - 22/11/2011

I and my wife, we visited Vars in January 2011, with Crystal sky. Stayed in one of the many apartments, do not actually remember which one. But what we both remember very well is the unbelievably sunny weather every single day that week. There was plenty of snow, quite warm, not much below freezing. It felt like spring time, if only days were a bit longer. Uncrowned slopes, no lift queues, not at all expensive restaurants, reasonable accommodation with shower and bath, and great variety of slopes. Not too many British skiers and very friendly locals. Rather quiet night-life. These are all on the positive side, at least for us (age 50). We were very tempted to go there again this winter. The only two factors which have made us not to are 1) too many outdated slow lifts and 2) our desire to explore new places.

Apres Ski: 4/5

Vars is a good, cheap destination. A smallish resort but with a good range of pistes and enough to keep the one beginner, two intermediates and two lunatics in our party happy! The hotel was full of schoolchildren but the relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and good food more than made up for this.
