Feeling slightly nauseous at the thought of not being able to get to mountains until the winter? Worrying you will lose the whole bag of tricks you learnt last season? Thinking of smoking crack to compensate for not snowboarding?

Well fear not, Les 2 Alpes opened its glacier yesterday- Wednesday 16th June. The lifts are open from 7.15am daily, with the summer shredding season lasting until 28th August, and if that hasn’t already persuaded you to pack up and go, theres 2.4m ( 8 feet) of the white stuff lying on the glacier.

Les 2 Alpes is the first to open its lifts this summer, allowing riders to shred 200 hectares and massive park including two half pipes and a superpipe.

Throughout the summer there will be a number of summer camps including Girlie Camps and One Snowboard Camps.
