"Risoul, another skiing trip!" Risoul by Djinn76

Risoul Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 11 photos

In 2004, that was the resort chosen by my previous university to go skiing... A friend proposed me to join, the trip was pretty cheap and I love skiing: I immediatelly agreed.

Risoul is located in the Southern Alps. Lots of French people from the South are skiing here, quite funny to hear their sunny accent when queing for the ski-lift!!...

Btw Risoul is one of the most sunny resorts (300 days of sun/year claimed by the marketing) but in january, I bet we were there at the wrong time : snowy, windy and quite cold!!

The life in this resort is pretty cheap and attract many students or young people. As a result, the night life is quite interesting... the skiing area is quite nice but don' expect the same infrastrucure as for example in Les Trois Vallees : here most of the lifts are plain ski-lifts...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:lots of young people
  • Cons:too many ski lifts instead of chair lifts...
