Enjoy some of the best freeride skiing in Europe, at La Grave La Meije, with Kasper, IFMGA mountain guide in love with this awesome off-piste skiing spot.
Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, Dec
La Grave is according to me the best freeride skiing spots in Europe, full of different options after taking the only lift of the valley. I discovered this place when I was an aspirant guide, helping a guiding company based in La Grave La Meije with their clients looking for off the beaten track slopes, couloirs…with amazing powder snow.
Skiing in La Grave is a real mountain experience, skiing in front of La Meije, going down 2000 meters’ slopes, long couloirs… I especially enjoy the complexity of the routes that you can find here.
I’m always so exited when I come here. The atmosphere is great, it’s full of people looking for the same things: powder snow, wild skiing places, couloirs, tree skiing… and another good point is that it isn’t very commercial although it is recognized as one of the best off-piste skiing spots.
I’ll be there in February and March, the 2 best months of the year guiding my friends and clients. Why don’t you give me a call if you come here. I’ll be happy to bring you in some of my secret spots. We can go together for one or several days, coming back every evening at La Grave.
Here are some of the routes I like to ski in La Grave:
– Glacier du Tabuchet
– Les Enfetchores
– Glacier du Rateau
– Couloirs des Cote Fine
– La Banane-Le Couloir du Lac
– Col de la Lauze
You must be a good skier with off-piste experience if you want to come here. It is accessible but still too hard for beginners.
An other advantage of La Grave is that we can mix a great Freeride skiing experience with touring days in Queyras and Nevache, or enjoy some other nice off-piste skiing spots in Montgenèvre, Serre Chevalier or l’Alpe d’Huez.
Feel free to get in touch with me if you plan to come in the area. We can discuss together about one or several days of guided good skiing in La Grave and surroundings.
I was born in 1979, grew up in Albertslund, just outside Copenhagen. I started climbing when I was 14 years old and I was immediately gripped by it. In 2000 I became a Rock Climbing Instructor (AK) and shortly after, in 2001, I moved to Canada to go to school - I took a degree in "Adventure Tourism". The real reason I traveled to Canada was the mountains and nature. The years I lived in Canada I used to develop my skills as a climber and alpinist. I also began training to become an international mountain guide. Since I have returned to Europe, where I have spent time climbing, skiing and being on tour. I have also completed my degree and I'm now internationally recognized as mountain guide and a professional working in the various mountain activities. During my years in the mountains, my passion for climbing and skiing have become stronger and stronger. As a guide and instructor, I hope to get the chance to share my passion and experience with you!
