Prato Nevoso is on the north-west facing slopes of the Maritime Alps with a good snow record and oodles of sunshine. There’s been a fairly recent investment in the lift system at Prato Nevoso as well as better snow making facilities and a reshaping of the pistes. It is particularly popular for beginners and a great choice for school groups. In Prato Nevoso there’s minimal walking and easy runs with an expert, welcoming ski school.
