Last chance to ski this winter in the Alpes du Sud

The vast majority of the winter sports resorts in the Alpes du Sud have already closed their lifts and pistes for the season, but there’s one last chance to get some skiing and snowboarding in at Isola 2000 and Auron this weekend.  

On Sunday 14th April, the popular resorts of Isola 2000 and Auron, both found less than two hours’ drive from Monaco, will close up shop for the season, meaning that this weekend is your last opportunity to get some skiing in before spring really does take hold.  

A further three ski resorts in the Alpes du Sud also remain open this weekend. These include Serre Chevalier, Orcières Merlette and Montgenèvre, the latter of which will remain in operation until Saturday 20th April, according to the France Montagnes guide, which can be found here

In all, 20 resorts across the country will be open until that date, but the number drops off significantly in the weeks that follow. As April turns to May, only ski resorts in the Alpes du Nord region, such as Val d’Isère, Tignes, Val Thorens and Les Deux Alpes, will have pistes open to skiers and snowboarders.  

There was considerable snowfall on the higher peaks of the Mercantour mountain range earlier this week, but warm temperatures are due in the region in the coming days. Temperatures up to 30°C are expected in some parts of the Alpes-Maritimes and the Var this coming weekend.
