The Gréolières les Neiges ski resort is located in the Grasse backcountry, and is the ski resort closest to the coast (22 km as the crow flies).The resort is a pleasure to visit in any season, alternating the joys of snow in winter and a variety of warm-weather activities in summertime. The ski area extends over the northern slopes of the Cheiron massif and spans a surface area of more than 1,000 hectares (2,470 acres).
From the top of the Cheiron, take in a unique, 360°, panoramic view encompassing the French Riviera coast, the mighty Alps, and, on a clear day, Corsica.
The snowmaking system, with its dozens of snow cannons, ensures coverage of four kilometers of runs throughout the season.
Note: It is the leading cross-country (Nordic) ski resort in the Alpes-Maritimes: 30 kilometers of trails crisscross a forest of Scots pines at between 1,400 and 1,540 meters’ altitude.
All the pleasure of hiking in a winter wonderland. Though fairly easy on flat terrain, this sport can become much more demanding on the slopes. No specific training is required to snowshoe, so everyone can enjoy hiking in the snow. Fun and refreshing!
