Winter vacations: discover the ski resorts 1h30 from Nice



In winter, Nice lives to the rhythm of its highlights, such as the Carnival. But if the Côte d’Azur city is an ideal destination for a mild winter, it’s also the starting point for enjoying the joys of the mountains and the snow in winter vacations. Just an hour and a half’s drive from Nice, the large ski areas and village resorts will delight ski and snowboard enthusiasts, as well as families who enjoy sledging or snowshoeing.

From Auron to Isola 2000, via Valberg and the village resorts of Beuil Les Launes, La Colmiane Valdeblore and Roubion, not forgetting the Nordic areas of Le Boréon and Casterino, each resort has its own identity and assets to attract winter sports enthusiasts or simply visitors looking for an escape to the great outdoors. With 135 kilometers of slopes, Auron is the largest ski area in the Alpes-Maritimes, offering a wide range of activities for the whole family!

The unique geography of the Alpes-Maritimes offers exceptional panoramic views from the peaks of the Côte d’Azur massif. On a clear day, skiers can look out over the Mediterranean Sea from Valberg, Isola 2000 (at the resort’s highest point at 2610m), the Col de Turini (Turini-Camp d’Argent), Roubion, Gréolières-Les-Neiges or L’Audibergue.

Are you staying at Hotel West End**** and would like to visit the ski resorts of the Alpes-Maritimes? If you don’t have a car, it couldn’t be easier!  Just take the “100% neiges” bus from to La Colmiane, Auron and Isola 2000. It’s even possible to make a round trip during the day for a single fare of €6 (book online).
