Les 2 Alpes summer glacier is to open for skiing from June 22 to Aug. 31, 2013 (7.15am to 12.30pm).

The summer 2013 ski pass is priced at €28.80 for adults and €23.50 for children under 13 and seniors over 65. The under 5s and over 72s ski free.

Les 2 Alpes has one of the largest summer ski areas in Europe. A funicular railway transports skiers up to the glacier’s eight runs (two green, four blue, two red and a freestyle area) which are served by chairlifts and drags.

Les 2 Alpes’ snowpark rivals that of Saas-Fee's glacier, with its snowskate zone, slopestyle (Big Air, tables, kickers and rails), cool zone, half-pipe (4.5m/15ft high, 120m/400ft long) and a smaller pipe suitable for beginners. Six-day ski camps run throughout the summer.
