Summer Skiing Holidays in the Alps

Summer Skiing Holidays in the Alps

For a summer holiday with a twist, discover one of our summer skiing holiday destinations, where blue skies and sunshine are combined with high altitude glacier skiing for incredible ski experiences. The best resorts for enjoying summer skiing in the Alps are the high glacial resorts such as Zermatt, Saas Fee or Tignes. Glacier skiing in the summer offers quieter slopes and most people ditch the heavy winter jackets for t-shirts and sun tans!

For summer skiing in Switzerland, discover 20km of glacier skiing in Saas Fee where a snow park and tobogganing ensure there’s plenty of snowy activities to enjoy throughout the summer. Zermatt is also a popular option for summer skiing in the Swiss Alps, and boasts the highest altitude of Europe’s summer skiing resorts. On top of the 21km of pistes, guests can enjoy a snowpark and incredible Matterhorn views. It’s also possible to pop over the Italian border for a day out in Cervinia for hearty Italian lunches!

In France, skiing in summer can be enjoyed on the Grande Motte Glacier above Tignes. Sitting at 3,000m, there’s 20km of pistes to explore, and after a morning on your skis, there’s panoramic sun terraces for a sunbathe and refreshing drink. During a summer skiing holiday, it’s also highly possible that you’ll spy national ski teams practicing in advance of the winter season – perfect for picking up some tips to improve technique!

Explore our portfolio of luxury chalets in resorts where skiing in summer is available, for a memorable summer holiday of snow and sunshine this year.
