Val d'Isère Summer Ski Season Underway

Val d'Isère Summer Ski Season Underway

Published : 09-Jun-2024 03:51

Val d'Isère has opened for a month of summer glacier skiing, its 61st summer ski season although some were missed due to poor conditions. This year it is reported to have 4km of slopes open at present and a healthy 4m base.

Val d'Isère opening means France currently has two summer ski areas available, with Les 2 Alpes having operated through May, aiming to continue to July 7th.That equal's the two currently open in Austria (Hintertux and Molltal) and is one less than the three centres (Fonna, Galdhopiggen and Stryn) open in Norway.

Molltal is due to end its season next week and a third French glacier area above Tignes is due to open for its short 2024 summer ski season in a fortnight's time.

Italy's Passo Stelvio has also opened for its 2024 season after a week's delay due to the access road over the pass needing to be cleared of snow and made safe from avalanche danger.

Year round skiing also continues on the glacier above Zermatt in Switzerland, also available from, Cervinia over the border.
