If you thought that springtime signals the end of the skiing season, remember that there are high-altitude resorts in Norway where you can have fun on snow all summer long.
However, early starts are essential. The glaciers can be icy at first, but softens with the first rays to provide hours of good skiing. By about midday, the slopes might turn to slush – a perfect time for a cold beer, a swim and to sunbathe.
It depends on the snow and weather conditions when these summer ski centres open and close, so check the snow report before you go.
