Auron is directly linked to the village of Saint Etienne de Tinee by the Pinatelle cable car. The town has all the charm and authenticity of a genuine mountain village with a rich cultural heritage. The Auron resort has access to 4 ski domains that stretch over 132 km of pistes. Skiers and snowboarders can profit from space for freedom and facilities that have been adapted to the sports.
Auron is a perfect resort to visit with your family and friends.
The Auron ski resort also offers other winter activities besides skiing and snowboarding. You can go snowmobiling, snow airboarding and snowshoeing.
In the summer, there are plenty of outdoor activities on offer. You can go hiking, mountaineering, climbing, via ferrata, mountain biking, Nordic walking and trailing.
There are also cultural activities to take part in as well, such as visiting one of the many chapels or museum’s here.
Several green, blue, red and black slopes are accessible by ski lifts (cable cars, chairlifts, ski lifts, gondola, rope tows and magic carpet). Beginners and experienced skiers alike can enjoy the pleasures of skiing there. While first-time skiers will learn how to ski, the experienced skiers will hurtle down the most difficult slopes. On the Ubac slope, you can enjoy the Family Park area which offers a fun and marked out course with obstacles and snow reliefs.
Snow lovers will enjoy the Auron snowpark which is divided into 2 areas: the beginners’ area and the area for intermediate and confirmed skiers. Auron is also equipped with two “Tandem Ski” chairs so people with reduced mobility can enjoy the slopes with a qualified instructor.
At the top of Auron resort, there is snow throughout the season, but at the bottom this is not guaranteed, so there are snow cannon's allowing you to ski down to the bottom.
Auron's closest airport is Nice, and it's an hour and 40 minute drive.
