A few of the European glaciers offer summer ski training opportunities and the Inside Out Ski Club is holding three-day summer ski camps in Tignes in June, offering a package of accommodation, airport transfers and three half-day coaching sessions.

“Following the great success of our Autumn Ski Camps we are once again working with the Hotel Les Melezes in Tignes Les Boisses to offer a great value package, so there's no need to pack your ski boots away for the summer!” said a statement from the company.

Prices vary slightly depending on date with the first camp from Friday 17th - Monday 20th June costing from £269 and the second from Monday 20th - Thursday 23rd June costing from £209.

The package prices includes half-board accommodation, airport transfers, 3-day glacier lift pass, and 3 half-day coaching sessions.

Summer skiing starts early in the day and finishes by lunchtime, allowing time for walks, mountain biking, lazing in the hot tub or just relaxing with a good book among the splendour of the Alps.

The minimum level to join these ski camps is Level 6 on Inside Out's ability scale, and you must be comfortable to ride on T-bars and happy to ski on firm snow first thing in the morning and soft snow later in the day.

In the coaching sessions their will be an onus on the fundamentals of ski technique such as clean transitions and edge control for carving, or coordination and twisting your skis for skiing steep terrain. On hill exercises, drills and feedback will be supplemented by video analysis. Group sizes will be no more eight per instructor, so places are limited and early booking is recommended.
