closest best resort to Nice/Monte Carlo

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Will be in Monte Carlo/Nice in January, wondering what the closest and best resort is to this area. We are intermediate and advanced intermediate skiers, and wouldn't mind taking off for a few days to the mountains.  Thanks.

Isola2000 is the nearest resort. If conditions are good, go during the week. It's under 2 hours drive.

I agree with WTFH. Isola is the way to go.

There are other resorts in the area, but they aren't as big and they're on the wrong side of the mountains so you've a long detour to get to them.

I skied in la Foux d'Allos a couple of years back & it linked into Pra Loup, but it's not as big as Isola, although it's a bit more of a traditional village than the purpose built wonder of 1960's architecture that is Isola.

It's further away from the coast than Isola, but still on the "right side" of the mountains. You pay your money & take your pick.
