/ summer skiing
Sharpen your elbows(assuming tignes), the scrum to be on the 1st funicular is something else.
Once up there the queues are fine as the racers have their own pistes.
You can still have a powder day there if you get lucky but generally i found it turned to mush very quickly.
I keep saying I'll try Les Deux Alpes one summer (it's fairly local) but have never got round to it. The problem with summer glacier skiing (or snowboarding in my case) is that it seems like a hell of a lot of effort and faff for not much quality slope time - especially when there's so much other stuff to do in the mountains in the summer.
