Winter sports in Nice Côte d’Azur

Try winter sports in Nice Côte d’Azur and enjoy the freedom!
Climb the highest snow-covered mountains in a unique setting that will amaze you at every turn.

Climb aboard a chairlift and hurtle down the ski slopes in the sunshine of Nice Côte d’Azur. Perched at an altitude of more than 3000 metres, the pristine white landscape around you is spectacular. Isola 2000, Auron, Valdeblore, Saint-Martin-Vésubie, in total there are more than 700 kilometres of slopes waiting for you. So make the most of your winter holidays to exceed your limits. Whether you’re a pro or a beginner, there’s something for everyone!

To each his own! If you don’t want to or can’t ski, you can take a sledge and ride down the specially prepared slopes. The sparkling nature becomes your own open-air playground, so you can enjoy every bit of it. Let yourself be swept away by this family activity that will delight young and old alike.

For thrill-seekers, get your adrenaline flowing on a snowmobile. Follow your guide on a unique ride through the forest! A real moment of escape to be experienced alone, in pairs or in groups. If you prefer to drive down the slopes, that’s also possible! Learn to drive on snow and follow in the footsteps of the mythical Andros Trophy circuit at Isola 2000. Take your first speed test as a co-driver or, for the more adventurous, take an advanced course. Wow effect guaranteed!

Enjoy family and fun activities in the snow

Winter holidays are not just for sportsmen. Enjoy unforgettable moments with your family in one of the resorts of Nice Côte d’Azur. Outings and workshops are organised for children of all ages. Building huts or igloos, figure skating, sensory walks in search of animal tracks, snowshoe hikes, introduction to hockey, they will gather wonderful memories.

And what about a trip with sled dogs? Escape into the forest and let yourself be guided by Huskies, Malamutes and Laikas on reserved routes, far from the ski slopes. This activity is of course supervised by an instructor and will amaze children and even their parents.

Finally, for a moment of disconnection from everyday life, discover meditative walks and yoga hikes. Soak up the mountain air and refocus on your body and mind. Well-being will be with you during your stay, so reach out to it and enjoy the present moment. An ideal activity to do at the end of your stay to close your winter sports holiday in complete serenity. And if you prefer to relax in a different way, there is also mulled wine!
