See 38 pro skiers’ favorite summer ski locations; vote for your own

Comments by Donny O'Neill/

As we head into the summer months here in the Northern Hemisphere, most of us will put away our ski equipment and saddle up for adventures of a different sort. That doesn’t mean that the skiing itch disappears, however, and luckily there are plenty of spots, both in North America and abroad, where you can get get your shred fix from June through September. We asked a handful of pro skiers, listed below, where their favorite places to ski in the summer were, and compiled the data in a pie chart.

Some, like Nick Goepper, choose Mt. Hood, because, “The terrain parks are awesome and are open most of the summer; you can also get to the coast in two hours to camp, surf and explore.” Inevitably, there was a strong backing for shredding in Whistler, BC during the summer, too. Local-boy Matt Margetts says, “You can ski perfect, hot, slushy parks from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Then, go to the beach, check out hunks, swim, tan, play beach volleyball and drink, if you’re into that. Then you can go out on the town any night of the week to any bar and have a great evening.”

Others, like Michelle Parker, stray away from the summer park scene, preferring the big mountains of places such as Cerro Catedral in Argentina. “It’s an incredible place to spend your summer, shredding in real winter, with big mountains,” she explains.

Check out what the pros have to say in the graph below, and then vote for your favorite summer ski destination in the accompanying poll.
