Hi Tom

I did a 6 day tour starting from Molines-en-Queyras, east of Risoul in February, 2020.  Some photos and maps here.  It was my first time in the Queyras and I was pleasantly surprised by the skiing.  Very quiet, even in a French half-term week.  Lower altitude meant we could mix huts and small valley gites/hotels.

I've skied in the Queyras & the adjacent Haute Ubaye several times over a period of some 30 years, inlcuding with the Eagles (parties led by Steve Goulden) - there are accounts of those trips in the year book. I'd recomend the area and although its a long drive from the UK and not close to any airports there is a night train from Paris to Mont Dauphin (with connecting buses to all the villages during the ski season).
