AURON | 1140 - 2450 m
Auron, known best of all for its close proximity to Nice (90 km), is located in the Mercantour massif. Does this make it the "French Mountain Riviera"? Maybe not-but thanks to its first-rate snow cover, and the extensive practice area all along its 130 km of marked trails, Auron is achieving its goals.

With its winding pistes between larch trees, pass through the snow park, or high speed runs on the black Olympic piste, Auron offers you bountiful benefits: some of which you will not see until after nightfall, when a cheerful ambience reigns in the resort.

Pleasant and versatile ski terrain.
Proximity to Nice and the French Riviera.
Very friendly atmosphere.
 
Avoid school vacation periods, as roads and pistes can become very crowded.

Green ski slope for Learners. These are usually not marked trails, but tend to be large open, gently sloping areas at the base of the ski area.  2 slopes Blue ski slope are Easy. Similar to the North American Green Circle, and are almost always groomed, or on so shallow a slope as not to need it  16 slopes Red ski slopes are Intermediate. Steeper, or narrower than a blue slope, these are usually groomed, unless the narrowness of the trail prohibits it  15 slopes Black ski slopes are Difficult. Steep, may or may not be groomed, or may be groomed for mogul. It is worth noting that 'Black' can be a very wide classification, ranging from a slope marginally more difficult than a 'Red' to an icy mogulfield  9 slopes
