La Grave is one of the Alps’ most renowned off-piste ski areas. For years it has attracted the best of the world’s off-piste skiers who come for the great skiing and the majestic beauty of the place.
We have chosen La Grave as one of the venues for our Expert-level Off-piste weeks aimed at serious skiers capable of negotiating the steepest slopes in the toughest conditions.
You'll need to be on top of your game to be up for this challenge!
This week will be an opportunity for expert level skiers to spend a week skiing off-piste with one of our team of international mountain guides.
There is no set itinerary.
The week will start with a welcome meeting & briefing on the evening of the first day.
This is an opportunity to meet your guide and the rest of the group and to discuss the plans for the week.
The itinerary for the remainder of the week will be set by the guide based on the snow and weather conditions, his recommendations and your own preferences.
The week is intended to be fun with lots of thrilling skiing but always directed with maximum attention to your safety and the safety of others.
The village is dominated by the towering La Meije and it is here from the top of the gondola (at 3,500m) that you’ll find some of the most rugged and challenging off-piste skiing and snowboarding in the Alps. This is steep glaciated terrain with gaping crevasses. You don’t need to stray too far from the 1 groomed run to find 50°slopes and cliffs and couloirs that demand total commitment.
Our Expert level off-piste adventure courses will be the most demanding trips suitable only for the advanced skiers capable of skiing the steepest slopes in the toughest conditions. Participants need to be supremely fit. These weeks will take place in renowned off-piste resorts e.g. La Grave and Alagna and will be led by mountain guides specializing in extreme skiing.
To participate on the expert level courses you need to have excellent fitness and endurance. These are demanding courses where you'll be skiing hard all day for a week. If you enjoy long lunches and plenty of breaks, this course may not suit you!
