Summer Snowboarding in the Alps

Summer snowboarding in the Alps.

Snowboarding is not just a winter sport or pastime. Riding takes place all year round all over the globe. Whether this is in South America or snow domes in Europe,China or Dubai. Some one will always be riding somewhere.

The European Alps is home to the most ridable all year round snowboarding resorts on the planet. During the summer months there are numerous riding locations. Here are handful of the best spots:

  • Cervinia, Italy ( our summer home ) - CERVINIA
  • Saas Fee, Switzerland.
  • Hintertux, Austria.
  • Les 2 Alpes, France
  • Zermatt, Switzerland
  • Tignes, France.

These resorts will usually have a snow park set up running from mid to late June over the summer months and into the Autumn. Its worth checking with the lift company to see operating times. Lifts will usually open a little earlier in the morning and close after lunch time.

The overall amount of terrain on the glaciers is not as extensive as your regular winter resort. If the winter has been a big snow fall year then usually the glaciers are nicely topped up for the summer season and into the autumn.

Summer snowboarding in the Alps is awesome for your overall riding skills. Plenty of laps both on the piste and in the snow park lets the riding improve naturally.  Vivid Snowboarding has its annual summer session running in Cervinia between the 9th- 13th August. You can check out the camp details here on our site SUMMER.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch for anymore details on our summer session or any of the locations mentioned above.
