The French ski resorts have a reputation as being more expensive than other Alpine country resorts, with the exception perhaps of Switzerland. There are always local offers available however that make the resorts a more affordable option and the French Riviera slopes have some of the most affordable options of all.
Nice has more than 4 ski resorts within a two and half hour drive of its shores with daily ski buses to the slopes. Take advantage of the low season holiday rental rates in town and ski the slopes by day and enjoy the city by night.
Isola 2000 and Auron have offers of 2 nights stay and 3 days skiing for 174 Euro per person. The ski bus departs from Nice with bus fares costing 8 euro return.
This year you can also profit from a special Ski Carnival promotion and the presentation of your Nice Carnival ticket will earn you a further 10% discount in the Mercantour park ski resorts.
You can check out all the local offers on http://www.cotedazur-neige.com and get ready to hit the slopes.
