Media release: Skiing in the French Riviera

THINK Riviera and you think sun, sea and ski.

Says a spokesperson: “The mountains account for 80 per cent of the Riviera and boast 15 different ski resorts.

“Join us in February for a press trip to the Mercantour ski resorts and see for yourself how the Mediterranean gives way to the snow covered mountain peaks.

“The mountains of the French Riviera are a fantastic destination for winter sports. Lots of daily direct flights of two hours from the UK and the bus transfer of 90 minutes costs just €1!”

Discover some of the following highlights in the press pack:

* A sea view from two resorts, Isola 2000 and Roubion-les-Buisses.

* A huge Nordic skiing area in Gréolières-les-Nieges.

* Snowboarders can choose between four snowparks.

* Snowshoeing in the magnificent Parc National du Mercantour.

* The family resort of Valberg, awarded the Family Plus Mountain label.

* The joy of a drink on the Promenade des Anglais after a good day’s skiing.
