La Grave – Vallée de la Claree off-piste skiing week

La Grave – Vallée de la Claree off-piste skiing week | undefined

The deep snow conditions offered by the Vallée de la Claree and La Grave, in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, is unique! Join the IFMGA mountain guide Martin and live an amazing week off-piste skiing there.


7 Days

Jan - Mar, Dec


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.

What people are saying about Martin



We had the best time ever, what a stunning place Silvretta is, I'm in love! Martin was utterly brilliant, relaxed but professional - keeping us safe at all times. We will definitely return, so many mountain's to climb, glaciers to ski and huts to drink beer in! Thank you all so very much. Love to all xx



Although weather prevented 100% completion, Martin was great and had a couple of great alternatives. We had a great trip!



Martin provided us with a challenging weekend that stretched and developed our skiing a lot. He was very responsive to our feedback tailoring the programme as we went. Would absolutely book him again.


Impresionante Martin....te hace alcanzar lo inalcanzable, con una sensación de seguridad increible. Un gran profesional



Martin was incredible! From the pre trip preparations to managing all logistics while there - he made sure I had everything I needed, taught me alot, and importantly kept me safe! He truly provided a first class adventure.
