Cool Summer Snowboarding. I'm HUNGRY !! Where !!!???

HI Guys,

I'm dying to go again and if it means Alaska I'll find a way but I've heard that there are Glaciers with in the Alps on the go all Summer like Les Deux Alps and Hintertux but how good is the snowboarding truly?

Is it just a wash of man made snow for 10 yards?

Where when travelling from the UK might I get completely natural snow fall in the June, July and August ?

Cheers !

Dan

Aussie is a bit like snowboarding in Scotland with more snakes.

Yeah but New Zealand is MILES away ! I'd never sit on a plane for 22 hours to stay away for a week !

Where would I fly to in the Southern Hemisphere?
