Glacier ski areas in Austria, France, Italy and Switzerland remain open for skiing.
Warm temperatures on Europe's glaciers have led some summer ski resorts to close early, but the majority remain open and the leading snow-reporting service http://www.skiinfo.com target=_blank>Skiinfo.com has snow depth details for all of them. The company tracks snow conditions several times daily, year round, at more than a thousand European ski resorts, including the dozen that are currently offering summer snow sports.
I've had it with summer. I'm fed up with the season's smarmy superiority, with its stranglehold on the national media, its tireless spin machine grinding out scene upon scene of family joy filled with bright sun, blue sky, sand, beach balls and cocoa butter.
