Risoul sits between the towns of Gap and Briancon and is situated in the Hautes Alpes department in south east France. It is famous for its ski resort and is part of the Foret Blanche ski domain. Its elevation is above 1,850 metres and is also bordered by two national parks namely Ecrins and Queyras. Risoul holiday rentals are a new phenomenon, but the ski resort at Risoul dates back to 1970 when the idea of building a resort here was first conceived. This ski resort was also the first adopter of snowboarding and has a Surfland snow park. Interestingly, this snow park was chosen as a “training ground” for the Winter Olympics of 2006.
