Winter

There is so much to do at Isola, from skiing and snowboarding to snowshoeing and skidoo rides. If you hire a car from Nice airport you can take the time to visit some of the charming neighbouring villages.

Skiing and snowboarding

With 45 pistes and 20 lifts, there is something for everyone at Isola 2000. There are gentle greens and blues and some more challenging reds and blacks for advanced skiers. The resort is relatively quiet and you can often find you have pistes almost entirely to yourselves!

To find out more about the ski area, visit the Isola 2000 website.
