Overview

Off Piste - Experience you are not in a typical ski resort...By exploring the domain of La Grave-La Meije, you are not in a typical ski resort.This is a real mountain environment as you head down in an unmarked, and non-patrolled area at your own risk.You must be aware of all mountain hazards including rocks, avalanches, crevasses, and be ready for the possibility of drastic weather changes.In 30 minutes, the cable-car (téléphérique) takes you to 3200m, where you can create your own itinerary for the descent. You can choose from vast glacial escapes to steep chutes, a world away from the marked trails, the ropes, and the signs of a ski resort. Let your skill level and your inspirations guide you.

The cable car ride to the top was well worth any wait. Be prepared for very cold weather even in the summer. The view is breathtaking.

It goes up very high bit it is so so slow! Compared to Austrian and Italian telepheriques it is expensive and outdated.

This is a place where skiing is the your objective. Hotels are basic, restaurants are OK, nightlife is non existent. But the skiing is great. No queues , no crowds, no posers, just a huge high ungroomed mountain. Perfect!

La Grave offers off pist to advanced and intermedium skiers. Very wise to take a guide as La Grave is not using dynamites for securing against avalanches and as there are some cliffs even in the lower parts. We took during 3 days guides from...More

Quite expensive but worth it for the views. After taking the trip to the glaciers come back to the mid station. There is a nice walk to a lake and auberge (45mins) followed by a stroll down the mountain. 8km in total

Somehow expensive (23€ per adult, up & down, no reduction for >65 years old) but very good service. Nice cafeteria in the upper station

We took the telepherique to the first level, Gare Peyrou d'Amont, and walked across to the lac du Puy Vachier - some scrambling over rocks and through pockets of snow - and then made our way down to La Grave. The way was sign posted...More
