La Grave is a resort synonymous with extreme skiing and holds a reputation as the connoisseurs choice when it comes to big mountain skiing. This is not your run of the mill purpose built ski resort, the iconic gondola transports you from the medieval town to the jagged peaks surrounding La Meije at 3,983m. With just one gondola to transport you to off piste heaven, skiing here is not for the faint hearted. If you are ready for a challenge, you could be in for the week of your life.
The resort itself is small and quaint, with no frills and no distractions. All trips are based at the cosy Auberge Edelweiss who offer a warm welcome, comfortable rooms and great food. Other than a few cosy bars and local amenities, there is not much in the way of après or off-snow activity, but after a long day conquering skinny couloirs and shredding steep tree lines what more could you need?

Holiday price includes: 7 nights half board, 3* hotel, twin share, set coach transfers, 6 days with mountain guides, Ski Club Leader
Lift price information: Price guide: €49 per day


Explore this legendary area’s best off piste routes over six days in the company of a mountain guide. Trips to La Grave may involve skinning to access the best descents, so a base level of fitness is advised to allow you to get the most out of your week


La Grave enjoys cult among the freeride community, with guests coming for only one reason - to ski it's legendary, almost entirely unpisted terrain.
The resort has around 500 visitor beds and one serious lift serving a high, wild and almost entirely off-piste mountainside. The result: an exciting, usually crowd-free area,  that should always be explored with a guide except for those intimately familiar with the slopes. with a vertical drop totaling 2,150 meters, interspersed with couloirs and rocks attracts a very specific group of thrill seekers.It is widely regarded as some of the best lift-accessible terrain in the world.


Auberge Edelweiss 3* is located less than 5 minutes’ walk from the Telepherique and is the perfect base for winter activities. The building is a centuries old coaching inn, and is steeped in history and charm. The interior is furnished in a rustic, chalet style, and the cosy lounge is the perfect place to relax after a long day on the slopes.
