Summer ski conditions on the glacier are similar to what you might find lower down the mountain in spring.
The pistes tend to be very firm at 7.30am when the first skiers arrive and soften gradually through the day, giving good “spring” skiing for a couple of hours and then becoming slushy around 12.30 when the lifts shut.
Conditions obviously vary depending on the weather we have. It can snow on the glacier, even in summer, giving wintery powder conditions. If it is particularly warm it can get slushy earlier and if it is very cold the snow can stay powdery, or frozen solid, throughout the morning.
