The location is accessible and the whole family can drive from Nice to reach Isola 2000 in less than two hours. Upon arrival a family will find that there are more than enough facilities for skiing, snowboarding, ice go-karting, snowmobiling, and other winter activities.
The new ski resort of Isola 2000 is relaxing because of two major reasons, the natural setting and the après ski. The serene mood of the Mercantour National Park permeates around the whole resort while the nearby small town of Isola provides a picturesque background. The family can spend countless hours tracing the footpaths of the park. Then, about 10,5 miles from the new ski resort, the family can take a short trip to visit a genuine French mountain village.
The après ski in the new ski resort of Isola 2000 is not at a fevered pitch at night. The atmosphere is laid back and relaxing. The nightlife, which is buoyed up by several bars, cruises at a low key. This does not mean that skiers stay cuddled underneath the bedcovers at night. In fact, the two most popular bars, the Le Cow Club and the Le Petit Chamois, can be quite crowded during the peak season. For those who wanted more excitement but are staying in this new ski resort, there are cars for hire that can be used to reach the busy towns of Monte Carlo and Riviera.
During the day, the new ski resort of Isola 2000 is fun and exciting because of the skiing terrain. There are 43 individual pistes in which the majority of it caters to intermediate skiers. There are several black runs for expert skiers. These skiers will enjoy skiing above and below the tree line. And there are ski runs for beginners and for parents who are teaching their children to ski. Of course, when the parents prefer to have their children instructed by professionals, there are available skiing schools. The new ski resort also provides day care services to help the parents.
All levels of skiers will be pleased to know that snow in the new ski resort of Isola 2000 is more than adequate. The area is benefitted by its elevation and its proximity to the sea. This proximity is the reason why the region is referred to as the Alpes Maritimes. The spectacular view of the Maritime Alps invites all visitors to take a break from their skiing adventures. Viewing the horizons is best done while eating in any of the excellent restaurants, such as the Le Rendez-vous, the La Raclette, the Le Crocodile, and the La Marmotte.
Aside from daytime skiing, the new ski resort of Isola also offers the opportunity for night skiing. There are also moonlight snowshoe walks. However, the new ski resort of Isola 2000 is open only from December until April. It is indeed a relatively new ski resort and not yet commercialized enough to accommodate summer holidays. The time that visitors can spend skiing in this region is limited only during the winter months.
