Some resorts at high altitude can offer glacier skiing, even during the summer months. For those resorts who wave goodbye to every last patch of snow, the visitor numbers may fall significantly and the sleepier resorts may all but close up. But this certainly is not the case for every resort. The more popular places are geared up to take advantage of the lack of snow by marketing themselves to summer visitors, who come to enjoy a whole host of outdoor pursuits, from fishing to paragliding.
