Ski season starts this weekend

For ski enthusiasts the region’s main ski resorts at Auron, Isola 2000 and La Foux d’Allos are due to open their ski slopes from this Saturday.

To hit the pistes in Valberg however, you will have to wait one more week, as they have pushed back their original opening to December 18, in the wake of lower than normal snowfall. Isola 2000 has had no such problems due to the favourable Lombarde wind. Acoording to the meteorological office, temperatures in the mountains are expected to reach 5 degrees during the hottest part of the day.
