Auron school ski trip, France

One of France's southern-most ski resorts is a great choice for catering to all abilities of skier

  • Voyager ski rep
  • from November
  • Evening entertainment

Auron, situated close to Isola 2000 and just an hour’s drive from the Mediterranean, is one of France's southern-most ski resorts. It was purpose built in 1937. We stay in the original mountain village of Saint Etienne de Tinée which is connected to the ski area and Auron by a 12 person gondola.

With 135km of pistes split to give plenty to offer for all levels of skier, it is a great choice for all school groups. The resort is snow sure and traditionally opens in November.


Auron Les Rabuons

Les Rabuons

Les Rabuons is located in the heart of the village of Saint Etienne de Tinée 500 metres from the main village lift which links up into the main Auron ski area. The centre has 36 en suite rooms with two to four comfortable beds in each, all with TVs & wifi access is available in every room.

Food is served in the centre's self-service restaurant with two dining rooms and an outdoor terrace as well as a lounge area and bar for teachers to relax. In addition, there are five equipped meeting rooms, including a plenary room for 100 people – ideal for in house evening entertainment.
