French Glacier Ski Areas Opening This Week

Les 2 Alpes will be the first of France’s three ski areas that still offer summer glacier skiing and boarding to open, this Wednesday, June 16th.

The lists open from 7.15am daily until the 28th August, the resorts there is 2.4m (eight feet) of snow lying on the glacier.

The resort’s summer ski area, one of Europe’s largest, covers 200 hectares and has eight runs and a large snow park complete with two half pipes and a superpipe located between 2900 and 3600m of altitude.

The other two glacier summer ski areas still operating since Alpe d’Huez, La Plagne and Val Thorens all stopped offering summer snow sports in recent years, are neighbours Tignes and Val d’Isere which will both open within days of Les 2 Alpes for their summer seasons.
