Summer Snowboarding: 7 European Resorts to Check Out This July

6 resorts in Europe where you can spray some slush and catch some rays!

 

Closest Airport: Innsbruck

Elevation: 3250m

Opening times: May to October

Park? Yes

The Hintertux glacier in Austria is one of the few places in the world where you can snowboard on every day of the year.

Located at right at the back of the Zillertal valley about 30 minutes up from Mayrhofen and at an altitude of 3250m, snow is basically guaranteed year round at ‘Tux.

The summer freestyle offering at Hintertux is particularly solid, with a huge number of jibs and kickers to hit, as well as pro kicker line. Earlier in the season there is also a halfpipe, although this is usually closed by the time summer rolls around.

The dedicated t-bar means you can get a bunch of laps in during the day and keep an eye out for local Burton Snowboards ripper Werni Stock crushing the pro-line like he can best. Chances are that if the sun is shining and he isn’t injured or travelling, he’ll be there!
