This June, the snow conditions on the glacier in Les 2 Alpes have been absolutely incredible, even better than usual! That’s great news for all snowsports fans as Les 2 Alpes’ glacier opened for SUMMER skiing on 18th June and will remain open until 27th August 2016.

Whilst we were breaking records for the amount of rainfall in the valleys this spring/early summer, up at 3,200 metres it was snowing! 

The weather conditions, combined with the work carried out by our piste grooming professionals on the glacier since the end of the winter season have enabled us to maintain good snow cover: 80cm of fresh snow fell in May, with a further 50cm in June, making an average depth of between 250cm-400cm of groomed snow.

From 11th June, LES 2 ALPES’ GLACIER laid out the white carpet, opening the slopes exclusively to FRENCH AND INTERNATIONAL SNOWSPORTS STARS!

This summer, we are proud to welcome snowsports pros from all over the world: France, Italy, Spain, Korea, USA, Canada, Quebec, Alaska, Andorra, Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia,…

80 slalom and / or giant slalom stadium marked out on the glacier for the French World Cup teams:
