Description

La Grave is definitely one of my favourite places in the Alps to practice freeride skiing. Going down slopes at the bottom of La Meije (3983m), the most beautiful mountain of les Hautes Alpes, will provide you with an unique feeling.

Based on your ski level, your wishes for the day and the snow conditions, I’ll define for you the perfect itinerary. We’ll have the choice between easy to challenging couloirs including Couloir du Patou or Couloir des Trifides. We can also go for the more classics spots like Vallon de Chancel or Vallon de la Meije.

I particularly like this place because we have the opportunity to ski in a real alpine and authentic environment. Whenever possible, we’ll go up to 3600m where the last ski lift can bring us and ski down to La Grave, at 1400 meters high.

The quality of the snow is usually very good in La Grave. And when the conditions are not the best on one side of the domain, we’ll go to the other side. Ski options here are endless.

Coming here for a day can be a great opportunity for the ones spending a week in the ski resorts of les Hautes Alpes: Alpes d’Huez, Les 2 Alpes, Serre Chevalier, Montgenèvre, Puy Saint Vincent, Vars, Risoul… I can even pick you up with my car to make it easy and comfortable for you. You’ll have the chance to leave the crowd and experience true Freeride ski!

Note that skiing in La Grave is only accessible to experienced skiers. There are only off piste skiing slopes here and the domain is not secured like a traditional ski resort. I’ll take with me skiers that feel comfortable on red slopes. I’ll provide you with the necessary safety equipment such as the avalanche transceiver, the probe, the shovel, ice anchors and a harness since we will be skiing on a glacier.

Feel free to get in touch with me if you like to come to La Grave and experience a real freeride ski day this winter!
