Isola 2000 is less than 60 miles from Nice and offers decent skiing for beginners and intermediates alike.
With its proximity to the coast, it would be easy to assume the mountains here are mere foothills of the Alps, but don’t be fooled. There’s a reason Tour de France cyclists base themselves in Nice during the summer. It’s home to some big mountains, and Isola is home to 43 pistes up to 2,600m. What you might lack in architectural charm, you gain in super easy ski-in, ski-out access in this purpose built resort.
