We love the idea of opening the ski season with a trip to the Côte d’Azur!
Spirit of contrast best describes the Alpes-Maritimes area, home to 3 international stations (Valberg, Auron and Isola 2000) and 12 family stations across the Massif. "Snow" and "sun" are guaranteed approximately 1 hour 30 min from the coast road! The last stations of the Southern Alps before the Sea!
