Dragon Lodge’s Will Hughes Summer Cloud-Bursting on the Tignes glacier

After a great end to the winter season summer is almost here, and in Tignes we’re planning a couple of weeks of classic summer camp style shredding and good times – with a firm emphasis on good times! Snowboarding in the summer has a different vibe, it’s all about slush slashing, euro carving, park sessioning, natural side hitting and tranny finding ollies with your friends. The shredding is only a part of a summer shred trip though, once you’re off the mountain you still have long sunny days to skate, get on your bike, swim in the lake, BBQ and drink beers and hang out with your friends – this is the perfect summer shred camp vibe that we are inviting you to come and share this July…with our famous Dragon Lodge hosting and of course some coaching from SuperRad’s James Sweet and others…
