Summer School

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I am thinking of doing some summer skiing in August for 1-2 weeks. Has anyone done the Warren Smith Academy in the summer? Would you recommend it? How good is the snow on the glacier? Any other recommendations? The budget might stretch to Argentina or NZ if I could find a good ski school there...

You might be lucky but snow wise August is not ideal. I would either head south for 2 weeks or wait until autumn. Depending on what you are trying to achieve?

Canít comment on Warren Miller. Iíve done a Snoworks summer ski course in Tigne a few years ago. It was excellent. I chose the first week in July and snow on the glacier was very good that year - start 8am finish 12am to 1pm before it gets a bit slushy. Very lovely in the alps in the afternoons too - walking, tennis etc. Snow on the glacier should be good again this year Iíd expect, although August is late. Iíd ski in the summer in Europe while we still can...

August will be great and is a good time for the Saas Fee and Zermatt glaciers Youíll start quite early, 815ish lifts with the warren smith crowd.

There are also loads of ski schools operating on the Saas Fee and Zermatt glaciers. Iím one of them, give me a shout if you want any more info.

The snow tends to be quite hard in the mornings, softens nicely for a couple of hours and then is slushy up to about 12/1pm.

The it nobody mentions is that there are not really many tourist skiers around in the summer. Loads of guys from the World Cup and international A and B teams. Itís a really inspirational place to be. The nature of the glaciers is that it promotes loads of lap coaching, so you can get massive technical progression done in less time that you would in winter.

Not sure how your plans are going, but Chile has epic skiing, I used to work in NZ and Chile is dramatically better. I'm based in Portillo and would like to think our school is pretty good Wink

Following up from this, is there anywhere where there are some slopes that beginners could access, was thinking about trying to get my kids a little sneaky trip before main season starts, so they get a head start.....if summer was no good would October half term improve options?

And a thread follow up - this today on Saas Fee, nipper no 4 mid 1 week training course with Ski Zenit. Mountain was closed yesterday as the snow was a bit too soft, but monday and today really good, same is in store for tomorrow with colder weather Friday. If you are in the region anyway, its a super experience if totally head wrecking to be skiing when its 21 deg at the village!

The kids love this summer week, builds them a great base to start their season from, just a week focusing on nothing but technique.
