This winter, the Alpes-Maritimes’ resorts will be continuing to invest in improving their runs, ski lifts, environmental quality and events and activities.
Accommodation providers are offering stays that combine the Côte d’Azur’s coast and snow-packed pistes, while resorts are busy putting together attractive packages and deals, subscribers to the Parc National du Mercantour’s “Esprit Parc Naturel” eco-tourism charter are treating us to some fantastic winter offers and wildlife-themed tourism is taking off to the delight of young and old alike!
Following the opening of Le Boréon’s artificial ice-climbing waterfall a few years ago, the département is continuing to develop its range of non-skiing leisure facilities, with France’s longest zip line arriving at La Colmiane this year: 2,663 metres of pure adrenaline, featuring 300 metres of altitude change and speeds of up to 120km/h starting at 1,776 metres and ending at 1,589 metres.
It’s worth remembering that the Alpes-Maritimes is unusually lucky in boasting 6 resorts with sea views from the top of some runs: an exceptional natural feast for the eyes. Valberg turns 80 in summer 2016, and is consolidating its position as a family- and eco-friendly resort, while Isola 2000 is emerging as the ultimate place to be for freestyle champions and Auron is developing its reputation for authenticity and the technical sophistication of its runs. The Alpes du Sud resort villages are synonymous with warmth and friendliness and the beauty of the area’s little villages.
