How to go skiing in summer

Skiing in the summer? Yeah, you heard... Skiing in the summer. Just because the sun is out slightly more often than it was in the winter, doesn’t mean that you have to stay in the UK.

Read on and follow the links below to find out just how you can get your skiing fix during the summer months.

Just because winter in the Alps runs from December to April, that doesn't mean the skiing has to stop. Lots of European resorts have glaciers that are open during the summer, such as Tignes, Zermatt, Saas Fee and Hintertux.

Alternatively, travel to the Southern Hemisphere and make the most of their winter. New Zealand, Australia and South America all have ski resorts, and are great places to visit for extensive backcountry.

If you don't want to travel so far, visit one of the indoor snowdomes or dry slopes around the UK. They host lots of events during the summer, including park nights, race training and competitions.

It can be tempting to spend a pittance going to some trashy clubbing resort in the Mediterranean and losing your sense of self worth for a week, whilst drinking concoctions from a metal 'fishbowl' that resembles a bedpan. But this should be avoided. You can always hit the slopes...
