4 nights, La Grave,
31 Jan 2019 - 04 Feb 2019
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?
