Vars les Claux

Center station

At the foot of the majestic Eyssina face, which sets a truly picture-postcard backdrop, Vars les Claux is the resort center.

From an altitude of 1,800 meters to over 2,000 meters in the heart of a larch forest that owes it its name of “Forêt Blanche”, you’ll find the village spirit here with all the services and entertainment of a major resort nearby.


Welcome to

Vars les Claux

A lively atmosphere

Vars les Claux is the bustling heart of the ski resort: several ski departure points dot the village, which stretches along the D902 towards the Col de Vars. Perfectly integrated into its larch forest, the resort offers a whole range of activities and entertainment, as well as human-sized shopping arcades for the pleasures of shopping.
All the shops are represented here: restaurants, sports stores, food stores, and boutiques to satisfy all your desires.


Residences, chalets, hotels and apartments offer a wide variety of accommodation to suit all budgets.

The different snow fronts ensure a good distribution of skiers and pedestrians who wish to take advantage of the departure points for hiking trails, with or without snowshoes, notably as far as the Col de Vars. In the heart of the resort, you’ll also find the brand-new Caribou rail sled for a dose of thrills!
