It is the biggest ski area in the Alpes-Maritimes.The lift served area extends from 1600 metres to 2450 metres. There are 135 km of lift served runs divided between 2 greens, 16 blues, 15 reds and 9 blacks. There are also 8 off piste itineraries routes. The lift system is extensive and has undergone recent modernisation and now includes 3 cable cars and a large park of chair lifts including six seater high speed chairs. The ski area is split over four sectors : Las Donnas, Sauma-Longue, Demandols, Lieuson. The domain is attractive and varied. The Demandols sector is in an isolated and wild valley with very sunny slopes.
