La Grave – Vallée de la Clarée off-piste snowboarding | undefined

Come explore one of France's best off-piste snowboarding spots with this amazing 8-day program in La Grave and Vallée de la Clarée, with IFMGA-certified guide Martin.


7 Days

Jan - Mar, Dec




This La Grave – Vallée de la Clarée off-piste snowboarding program will take you to some of the most amazing powder slopes in the French Alps!

La Grave is a small ski resort town in the southeastern Hautes Alpes province of France, almost in the border with Italy. Very close to this town is the scenic Vallée de la Clarée, a valley that follows the river with the same name, and gets packed with snow in winter.

So on this off-piste snowboarding we’ll spend a 5 days exploring this great area to find the best untouched slopes for you to ride!

First we’ll enjoy 2 days riding through La Grave. Here there is only one lift, a cable car that goes from 1400 to 3600 meters in about 30 minutes. From there on I will look for the best terrain depending on the weather conditions.

Then we’ll spend the next 3 days on a snowboarding traverse through Vallée de la Clarée, staying in cozy mountain huts and exploring great backcountry terrain.

Want to join me on this La Grave – Vallée de la Clarée off-piste snowboarding program? Send me a request now and I’ll take you on an amazing adventure you will never forget.

And if you feel you’re not ready for this kind of challenge yet, let me invite you to my Piau Engaly 2-day off-piste snowboarding course.

fantastic 2 days out! nice weather both days! good platform to find experienced certified guide like 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
