How to go snowboarding in Summer

By adamrowden, 20 Jul '12 at 09:38

Snowboarding in the summer is like eating pizza for breakfast or spending an hour on Facebook whilst at work. It doesn't seem like it should be allowed, but at the same time it vastly improves your mood. Most resorts will close during the warmer months, however, there are quite a few places that open up for snowboarding in the summer.

Just because winter in the Alps runs from December to April, that doesn't mean the snowboarding 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.

But this should be avoided. You can always hit the slopes...
