Though the main skiing season usually lasts from the late autumn to early part of May, it is now possible to ski even in the summer months. The options in the month of August are though limited, this can easily be made up by several other activities in Port du Soleil. Catered chalets mainly used for the skiing holidays, can easily form a good base at any time of the year, and there are lots of alternatives.
Just look at the Les Gets and the surrounding areas for example. This mesmerizing alpine village is actually a paradise for the mountain biker and offers you about 500 miles of magnificent trail for exploration. If you are a nature lover and enjoy its beauty then you can just wander on many well marked footpaths and hikes. Several lifts are usually open around the year. The catered chalet, like those which are offered by Chalet experience are welcome after all that exercise and fun in really breathtaking environment.
However, by being out on the high altitudes in open at heights exposes you to the radiation having intensity which you may have never experienced in your life. Here the atmospheric absorption is vastly reduced as compared to the lower altitudes, like on the seaside, and you need to take great precaution. For example, you should use complete sun block, and then after some days, you can consecutively reduce this protection, at your own risk.
Rafting, abseiling, trekking with the donkeys, micro lighting and potholing are many interesting things which you can easily combine with the usual skiing. The sun in the summers usually warms the waters of the lakes to a temperature of around 21 degrees which makes the experience of swimming, surrounded by the green pastures and forests, a great experience.
If you really enjoy skiing, and would wish to become a part of the active summer break, a catered chalet in this area could be a perfect answer to your needs.
