Activity description

Come and explore the exquisite Meije Valley at the world-famous La Grave ski resort!

Your day typically starts at 9am when you head off on your trip and ends around 5pm. During your outing you will probably explore the Girose glacier and La Meije valley but also Chance and Selle small valleys.

The 2,000 metre (probably more) altitude difference provides you with breath-taking views (northern façade of the Meije and Rateau), making the valleys unique and exceptional.

This descent will inevitably remind you of the Vallée Blanche at Chamonix. The ski tow of the glacier goes up 3,550 metres to the summit of the Dome of the Lauze.

If you’re a fan of extreme skiing, Vincent suggests visiting the passes of Trifides or Chirouze and the Rateau summit (among other possibilities).

To make sure you never forget the fun you had, Vincent gives photos and very often videos of your trip for FREE!
