    Let’s live a unique week off-piste skiing in the wildest places of La Grave and all the Vallée de la Claree.

    Off-piste and freeride skiing lovers are in a lucky day. La Grave is the mecca of off-piste skiing. It’s a exciting and remote spot where you can find slopes that ascend up to 2300 meters with wild but safe descents.

    La Grave is not an usual and big ski resort. So, there is only one cable car that ascends from 1400 to 3600 meters in about 30 minutes.

    The complete program consists in 5 days of activity. We must add 2 extra days to travel to the starting point. First, we will live a wonderful 3-day trip in the Vallée de la Claree, staying for the night in comfortable mountain lodges.

    Then, we will spend 2 days off-piste skiing at La Grave, a wild glacial terrain with really amazing slopes. These days will be also dedicated to cross-country skiing. We will spend the night in the magnificent huts of the Vallée de la Claree, near Briancon.

    I will lead a group of maximum 4 skiers. That way it will be a more fluid and enjoyable activity. It is necessary to have previous experience in off-piste skiing and ski touring in unspoiled snow.

    The sensation of skiing in deep snow conditions is unforgettable and you will hardly find it elsewhere.

    It’s your opportunity! Get in touch with me if you find this trip interesting. I’d be happy to guide you across the Vallée de la Claree.

    We enjoyed this trip in the Alps very much!! It was an excellent introduction to mountaineering and the stunning peaks of the Alps massive. Our guide Martin made the full experience a succes; pushing us to the limits, keeping us safe at difficult rocky ascents, but also taking time to enjoy the scenery and the climb. Thanks a lot for the beautiful pictures too!

    This was a great 4-day hut-to-hut ski experience in the Pyrenees. The national park of Aiguestortes is beautiful and we had a lot of snow. Martin is a professional and social guide. He makes sure that the trip takes place from a pleasant and secure way. Due to the weather conditions we couldn\'t do the climb to the Montardo and to the Ratera, but Martin organized some alternatives to enjoy the 4 days. We were an international group and could communicate with Martin in English.
