Where to Ski or Board in France in August 2017

STORY BY Patrick Thorne 3rd August 2017

The French Alps got as dusting of snow on higher slopes in the last week of July.

Tignes, pictured above and a video below from July 26th, offer fresh snow to its glacier skiers.

But summer is back now and summer ski glacier conditions are more normal with a 7am start, the best skiing between 9 and 11, and closing at noon.

There’ll only be one France summer ski destination open for much of August – Les 2 Alpes.  It starts the month with a 65cm base and eight runs open graded blue and red, plus the terrain park.

Tignes says it’s will finish summer skiing earlier than usual this season – on August 6th – possibly connected to renovations of the Grand Motte cable car.

And the other French summer ski area above Val d’Isere finished its season last month.
