With guaranteed natural snow on a glacier culminating at an altitude of 11,800ft, Les 2 Alpes is one of the rare ski areas to stay open right into summer and they expect their summer ski and snowboarding season to run from 23rd June to 26th August 2018 this year.

Les 2 Alps is one of three glacier areas in France still opening for summer snowsports, along with Tignes and Val d’Isere. They operate the largest skiable glacier in Europe with 250 skiable acres of runs for all levels. Since last fall 2017, the glacier has been equipped with snowmaking facilities.

The summer season also begins with the second annual, weekend-long Les 2 Alpes outdoor festival which brings together elite athletes, enthusiasts and sports lovers who are keen to discover mountain activities.

You can try out all the latest activities or take part in various competitions in seven disciplines including MTB, trail, hiking, skiing, snowboarding, golf, and paragliding, as well as alternative sports such as slacklining, waterlining, climbing or yoga.
