Summer Skiing

Skiing continues all Summer here on the glacier. Top professionals (and people like us!) take the opportunity to hone skills with private lessons or small classes, starting early and finishing at 12 ish. Play tennis all afternoon, sail, cycle, walk, fish, swim......or you could sit in the sun with a beer!

The glacier, rising to 3,656 m, has 20 km of pistes covering 130 hectares with a vertical drop of more than 750m and one of Europe's largest summer ski areas. When you come out of the funicular, the views are stunning. A 360° panorama of peaks from Mont Pourri to the ridges of La Grande Sassière, the Grande Casse (at 3,856 m the highest point in the Vanoise range), and Mont Blanc looming in the distance...
