Either in the Southern Hemisphere, or really, really high

The high altitude French resort of Tignes offers a unique riding experience, and summer glacier riding from mid June to early September. Part of the attraction, unlike most other glaciers which tend to be a hassle to reach, is that you can reach the base of the glacier in less than ten minutes by an underground funicular.


The North Face offers challenging terrain for intermediates and expert riders, while the glacier snowpark is one of the best of its kind. The halfpipe, rails, moguls, a hip ramp and quarter-ramps attracting pros and punters alike for the whole of summer.
