  • After a few weeks holiday at the sea, the desire to once again breathe the mountain air came over us! So we headed up to visit Isola 2000. We knew Isola 2000 from various visits in the winter. We know that winter sport resorts are not so nice in the summer, because the snow away conjures up all dirty, unkempt and negative. With this knowledge we arrived in Isola 2000. A cable car was opened and so we went cheerfully, to enjoy a lunch in the hut. Previously, we had to clean the cabin of the car because the Radfaher polluted the seats with their wheels. Once at the top, no chance - nothing was open. So are we went for a walk a little and said, well, we eat below. We looked from the cabin that some snacks - had opened restaurants. The exterior of the station was depressing, all the garbage was around, from winter the seating, stood outside and waited for repair and cleaning. The closed snacks left the impression of an abandoned Western town in Texas with us. Because the small hunger does not satisfy us, we strolled to the open three snack - restaurants. Garbage and trash everywhere, the rooms crammed full of clutter from the winter menu citizens without fries 9.00 euros, despite hunger we saw out of here to order something. The obvious filth of the rooms and staff provoked a disgust. How can a winter sport look so abandoned in summer and be so far off of each service. Everything, the lift station, the cabin, the zugemüllte landscape, is in a State of disrepair. It stood there several buses on Sunday afternoon, what impression have to get these visitors. So to the person in charge of Isola 2000 - even in the winter not very nice thats through popped out buildings in the style of a previous, Soviet era. Will awake and you your paradise with open eyes look at.

  • Small friendly town! Access is difficult because small roads winding to get there, but worth it because little traffic in the city and everything is done to limit car trips. Perfect to spend summer holiday for lovers of hiking.

  • I have spent here 6 days skiing, and I loved it. Even blue slopes could be fast enough. The slopes were well maintained. I would recommend it to anyone.
  • Very close to Nice, in about 2h by car you are on top! Really on Top! Unluckily I don't go there for skiing, in winter I climb there for the Ice Rally "Trophee Andros" a very particular evento for motorsport. The town is on the italian border and if you like ride bike, motorbike or car, the road is amazing with wonderful panoramas to shoot (I did Nice-Torino via Isola 2000 Col de la Lombard in october and fall colors were superb). In summer there are wonderful mountain paths to climb with lakes and WWII fortifications. Before to climb to Isola 2000 do a stop at Isola the old original Village with all different main doors. If like me also do astrophotography it's better spend another half of hour and climb to the pass Col de la Bonette (another wonderful road) open from spring to autumn. Don't forget also the Parc National du Mercantour.
  • Sking for 5 days March 2015. Isola is great. cheap to get to via snow bus from nice airport. Skiing mainly blues and reds. Restaurants a little overpriced for average food. Laid back ski resort. Not much nightlife if your'e into that. family freindly
