La Grave: every freerider needs to have been here at least once in his life. From the terrace of our hotel we look up to majestic peak of the La Meije and ask ourselves how to ski up there? In fact the steep northern runs with their gigantic vertical meters make La Grave one of the best freeride spots in the Alps and beyond. From the upper station at the Dome de la Lauze at an altitude of 3500 metres there is a variety of excellent downhill runs towards La Grave, ranging from rather moderately steep to very steep.
The runs Trifides, Glacier de la Girose and the run to St. Christoph, a cast-away mountain village, are only some of the highlights. We will pass one skiing day in one of the neighbouring skiing areas of Les 2 Alpes or Alp d’Huez. Just in case the weather is not perfect, we can still reach Les Monetiers within few driving minutes. Here we will find a great freeride area in very nice glades. We might even go to Montgenevre above Briancon – we take you to the best spots with the best snow. Each year we come back to La Grave and it never dissapoints!

The insurance will be queried in our online registration form and we kindly ask you to fill in that information.
