With 120km of pistes it's easy to see why the resort is a popular weekend attraction from the Riviera. Pedestrians can take the Pélevos cable car and rise to 2,320m above sea level and enjoy a panoramic view of the resort. We're told that on a clear day you can see the sea (but as it was cloudy when we were there we can't confirm this!).
