We had a fantastic 2013 winter season in The Alps with record snow fall. But that doesn’t mean that ski resorts batten down the hatches and go into hibernation until the season starts again! Instead, they shake off the snow to reveal their verdant beauty and make for a refreshingly different summer vacation destination. Perfect for escaping city smog and blistering heat, ski resorts in summer offer fresh, clean air, spectacular scenery and a host of activities, including hiking, mountain biking, paragliding, rock climbing and of course summer skiing and snowboarding.
