Summer season in Les Deux Alpes (France)
Hey guys !

It's the time of the year where you deal with your after-season snowboarding comedown. This year I decided to stay in the 'denial phase' and chase some snow on the European glaciers.
I've been looking in to riding the deux alpes park from mid june - late august.
Has anyone done the summer season/holiday here before ?
As work seems to be very hard to find the best option would be to skibum it.
I'm counting to spend +- 2000eur on the 2 months including the skipass(750ish)
Still looking around for some form of accommodation.

Any help would be appreciated !

Went a couple of years back is a good laugh for a week but unless you really love park I wouldn't bother, slopes are bullit proof in the mornings and slush by lunch if i remember they close the lifts at 12.30. Save the cash and wait till winter, or head to the southern hemisphere and get a proper snow fix.

I am really into park, that's the only reason I'd be heading out.
Used to those conditions by now, sounds the same as late season.
Used my australian workers visa last year and South America won't be an option this way. Might consider Blackcomb in BC, would be a more expensive lifestyle and the season is shorter though.
