Don't worry about the ski day ending slightly earlier on glaciers, either. With the snow beating a hasty retreat at lower altitudes, plenty of paths and trails will make themselves available. This leaves you with the opportunity to jump on that mountain bike or enjoy scenic mountainside walks. You could always give white water rafting a try, too.
The last major detail to consider with glacier skiing is the gear you'll need. As a result of the milder temperatures, light clothing is fine. Just make sure you have a few extra jumpers in case it cools down and that you've got some completely waterproof outer layers. Be sure to wax your skis/board for wet snow, or you'll be competing with the snails in terms of speed. And, joy of joys, you'll need your sunglasses and suntan lotion. The sun tends to be very strong in the summer and is magnified by the reflection off the snow.
And that's about it when it comes to making the most of glacier skiing. The rest is up to you but, rest assured, after a summer of smooth turns on a glacier, it might be a struggle forcing yourself back to plain ol' winter skiing…
