Auron Ski Resort, summer 2018

Summertime hiking at Auron Ski Resort in Mercantour National Park, southern France. The base camp — not shown in the photo — sits at 5,250 feet (1600m) and some of the 43 runs rise nearly 3,000 feet above that, so skiers and snowboarders (and hikers and bikers in the summer) have a lot of terrain to explore. Unlike other nearby resorts, such as Isola 2000, the runs here are mainly intermediate and advanced. There are only 3 beginner runs in the entire resort.
