La Grave

A week of exciting Ski Mountaineering in the birthplace of extreme skiing: La Grave, France!

Nestled at the base of the Ecrins massif in the French Alps is the town of La Grave. This small village surrounded by big peaks is considered to be the birthplace of extreme skiing. The lift-accessed mountains provide a plethora of couloirs, faces and hanging glaciers, sprinkled with high mountain huts serving hot food and cold drinks. La Grave is the ultimate place to experience true ski mountaineering while enjoying the comforts of a quaint village and the array of mountain huts across the massif, while avoiding the crowds of Chamonix. A classic French ski mountaineering experience!
