A variety of slopes alongside “Tony’s Snowland”
On the other hand, the slopes around the area’s only ski station, “Isola 2000”, are home to a huge variety of blue and red-graded runs, as well as designated practice zones for beginners. All of Isola 2000’s 42 ski runs are easy to reach thanks to a network of 20 lifts.
The no.1 destination for boarders and freestylers alike is “Tony’s Snowland”, in the shadow of the “Tête de Pelevos”. Equipped with a half pipe, a “slopestyle” area, rails, a “boardercross” run, and an “Easy Park” for beginners, this snow park truly has what it takes to keep everyone from professionals to complete novices well entertained. Boarders will also find a “freeride” zone close to “Col Mercière” and “Tête Mercière”.
Those looking to make their first forays into the world of freestyling can do so in complete safety at Isol’air 2000, where huge cushions of air ensure peace of mind and a soft landing while practising even the most complex of moves.
The fun carries on after dark on both Tuesdays and Fridays, as the 2km blue-graded run by the “Belvédère” lift is open from 8pm until 10pm. Cross-country fans will find a 3km route through the enchanting winter landscape starting near the Isola 2000 ski station.
The younger members of the family are also very well catered for. Children from the age of 15 months upwards can spend the day in either a nursery or a kindergarten. The ski-kindergarten provides a secure environment, where kids from the age of 4 years and upwards can gain their first fragments of experience out on the snow.
