Summer Skiing France, Jun 2009

Tignes is the second French resort to open for summer skiing. To celebrate the resort staged a bikini ski event in which a small number of enthusiasts took to the snow slopes clad only in swimwear and ski boots! The ski area will be open for the next 10 weeks through to 30th August from 7.15am to 1pm daily. The Perce-Neige underground funicular lifts skiers to the glacier in only seven minutes where a dozen ski lifts are operational.
