Auron is great if you are beginner to intermediate. The runs are fun and varying, there are some really fun off-piste slopes too. I wouldn't necessarily go back though. I lived in Nice at the time, so it was great because it's only 1 1/2 hours drive from Nice. If you have high expectations of how your winter-holiday should be, don't go to Auron. The one advantage of Auron is, it's not as expensive as Courcheval for example, but then again, it's not as big! So it really depends on what you like. If you're in the south of France anyway, you can head up there for a fun day of boarding. From Nice, there's a ski bus which heads up there almost everyday for about 30 Euros (ticket to and from the r

I visited Auron last January. We had a wonderful experience. The snow was excellent, and the ski-domain is actually very large, with plenty of variety for different skier skills. The village is pleasant, with several good restaurants. A bit short of night-life however! Aside from one or two small bars. Not the scene for a crazy holiday, but good for families. Princess Stephanie of Monaco goes every year for her birthday! She was there when we visited. If its good enough for Royalty...!!

Auron is een wat klein dorpje met een mooi skigebied. Het is als een cirkel om de gondelverbinding nar het beginpunt van het skigebied gebouwd. Het kent dus eigenlijk amar een plein en een straat waar alles gebeurd. Ga er niet naar toe voor de apres-ski, verder dan wat bier en een disco-avond in een bar komt men niet. Wel leuk schaatsen in het centrum van het dorp. Het is hardstikke zonnig, vaak mooi weer, maar ook vaak iets minder sneeuw dan elders. Als alles open is heeft het een gevarieerd en lekker skigebied, tegen relatief lage prijzen (ook in de horeca). Erg kindvriendelijke pistes!

Auron is snel (ook per bus €8,00) bereikbaar vanaf vliegveld Nice (v.a. €30,00+tax) en is prachtig gelegen in zonnig dal. Veel investeringen in snelle liften en nieuwe pistes. Overzichtelijk en goed beveiligd skigebied heet Mercantour. Gebied wordt vooral bezocht door bewoners van de Côte d'Azur, die daar appartementen bezitten. Feesten doen ze de hele zomer al aan de kust, dus reken niet op après-ski en uitgaan. Wel heel gezellig en lekker eten/drinken in sfeervolle restaurants met open haarden op de pistes. Aanrader met kinderen.
