Skiing and winter sports in Auron
The ski area of the Auron ski resort is divided into 4 areas:
- Las Donnas
- Sauma Long
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… You can also take lessons at the ESF of Auron (French Ski School).
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. The Auron ski resort offers a wide range of winter activities such as snowmobiling or snow airboarding. Snow airboarders are lying on their stomach on an inflatable sled going down the slopes.
In order to appreciate the exceptional panoramas of the Mercantour National Park, go to Saint Dalmas le Selvage. It is only a few kilometers away from Auron. You will enjoy there a huge area perfect for ski touring, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing.
