Skiing during the summer months is very popular with ski clubs and snowboard camps as it gives a few extra months of practise in between the winter ski seasons.

Summer ski area

Thanks to the Pissaillas glacier (known as the Val d'Isère glacier) summer skiing is possible - the snow coverage on the glacier is helped by a number of snow cannons and the ski area is served by three ski lifts: TK du Montet, TK Côte 3000 and the Cascade Express.

Slopes are open only in the morning and in the summer the snow gets slushy very quickly so heading up early in the morning will get you the best snow. The summer skiing season can be dependent on the preceding winter season's snowfall and weather, so it's always best to check the glacier is open for skiing before heading off.

Summer skiing is generally under warm sunny conditions, with cheaper ski passes and an un-crowded resort.
