WE LIKE

  • Legendary off-piste mountain with over 2000m vertical
  • Usually good snow conditions on 12km of 'prepared' runs and miles of off-piste! 90% of this ski area is off piste!
  • Link to Les Deux-Alpes - Grande Galaxie ski area

WE DON'T LIKE

  • Poor weather means the 3 lifts can be closed on average, two days per week
  • Suitable for experts only - in addition there's no grooming on the slopes
  • Nothing to do off the slopes - but a beautiful 12th Century village

On the slopes

A truly unique ski resort, ski La Grave and you have the spectacular 2,150-metre vertical drop of the Vallons de la Meije, which attracts skiers and boarders from all over the world. Whilst there's a lack of green, blue and red slopes for beginners, the expert runs and off-piste are superb.

There's no really groomed runs, no snow cannons, no ski patrols and just two key lifts. If you are a beginner, there are nursery slopes and ski schools in nearby La Chazelet, while the more adventurous should hire a guide to explore the full range of skiing La Meije. For children there's a Snow Kindergarten ESF (French Ski School) and sledding. This really is a one off resort.
