the best lift access free riding in the world
If conditions are not ideal in La Grave, we use our mini buses to visit any one of the ten neighboring resorts with their own micro climates.
we may also propose a day or two ski touring during your ski week
La Grave is a traditional French mountain village with no high rise buildings and only a small ski area, located at the foot of the majestic Meije (3982 m) near well-known resorts of Les 2 Alpes, Alpe d'Huez and Serre Chevalier. During this week, the guides will always be searching for the best snow and a flexible attitude is important. Part of the adventure is to find the best snow and this is our specialty! Sometimes we drive therefor also to Montgenevre in Italy with extensive capabilities and heliskiing!
This is not an area for beginners! The programme is especially designed for participants who have previously participated to one or more of our programs, and / or can prove extensive off-piste experience. Especially important is experience with steep slopes on hard snow.
We stay at the Skiers Lodge / Hotel des Alpes, with good kitchen and breakfast in the center of La Grave. You sleep in 2- or 3-bed rooms, with views of La Meije.
This program is also suitable for participants on snowboard (please specify when booking)
