Skiing is available on Tignes' Grande Motte glacier and will be open to die hard ski fans until the end of August, by which point it will only be a matter of weeks until the countdown to winter skiing recommences.
The Ski Club also reports that summer glacier skiing is already available to those on ski holidays in Les Deux Alpes, while Val d'Isere summer skiing will kick off later this month.
