Where to Snowboard in the Summer?

Snowboarding doesn’t have to be limited to the winter months. When you think of a summer holiday, you usually think about lounging around on the beach in the sun. If you’re someone who prefers an action-packed holiday, you may decide to hit the mountains instead of the beach. Europe has resorts in Italy, France, Switzerland, and Austria where conditions are snowy in all seasons. These high-altitude resorts maintain great conditions for snowboarding all year round.


In winter, the Alps are an extremely popular destination but there are year-round resorts that are popular in all seasons. Cervinia in North-West Italy is a year-round ski resort with awesome views of the Matterhorn. The village has one of the highest accessible glaciers and one of the highest snow parks in Europe. Access to the glacier is from 9 am to 2 pm so you can spend the rest of the day enjoying the little village, eating pasta, and doing other activities. 

In the mid-90s, snowboarding became a fast-growing winter sport, and since its debut in 1998, it has become a staple of the Winter Olympics. Many Americans will look forward to sports betting on snowboarding as this is currently limited to major events, such as the World Championships and the Olympic Games. As a young and growing sport, betting opportunities are likely to increase in the future.


Les Deux Alpes in Mont-de-Lans, France, is one of the largest summer ski destinations in Europe. At an elevation of 3600m, it remains open throughout the year. A 6-day lift pass and a glacier experience pass will allow holders to enjoy all of the resort’s facilities. A general rule of thumb when snowboarding in summer is to start early and make the most of the snow before the slush becomes too heavy. You could snowboard alongside some of the greats when snowboarding in Les Deux Alpes in summer.
