We can offer Summer Skiing in the French Alps in two resorts – Les 2 Alpes  in the Oisans region and Tignes in the Tarentaise region.


Les 2 Alpes has one of the highest ski areas in the world, and from 2800 to 3600 metres (11 800 ft), between 21 June and 30 August 2014 the largest skiable glacier (90 hectares) in Europe is open for Summer skiing and snowboarding. Les Deux Alpes is very much Europe's capital of summer skiing with a significant area of marked pistes, an 800m vertical descent, 16 ski lifts open from 7.15am to 12.30pm, a purpose built “snowpark” with half pipes, jumps, and organised courses available it offers a total ski area bigger and better than many small winter resorts. With a variety of runs in a relaxed summer atmosphere Summer skiing is for everyone from complete beginners to more expert skiers or boarders looking to enjoy something different. You can even mix with professional snowboarders who come from all over the Europe for training. Summer skiing is done in the morning until lunchtime leaving the rest of the day for more traditional summer activities in Les Deux Alpes.


Tignes Glacier rises from 2700m to 3600m and boasts 20km of ski runs, 12 lifts, 750m of vertical, a snow park and an ice grotto not to mention having breathtaking views. From its summit of 3656m, the Grand Motte glacier dominates the surrounding area. Grande Motte Glacier is open during the summer months allowing freestylers to practice in the snowpark, or watch the professionals complete their summer training.  For the beginners amongst you the soft summer snow is ideal. The Grande Motte Glacier is open from 21st June to 3rd August 2014 everyday from around 7.15am to 1.30pm.
