La Grave Ski Resort France

La Grave ski resort in France has off-piste freeride terrain with a fearsome reputation where beginners & intermediates need not apply!

La Grave is a ski resort in name only. A distinctly non-resort style traditional village. Only one marked piste trail high up on a glacier. The vast majority of La Grave's 2150m skiable vertical is challenging terrain with no boundaries & at your own risk.

See the La Grave ski map here.

Powderhounds with skill & experience will enjoy all that La Grave has to offer.

Where is La Grave France?

The village of La Grave is in a remote part of the Hautes Alpes region of south-east France. By road, La Grave is 80km (1.5hr) east of Grenoble & around 40km (50min) west of Briançon. Gateway airports are Lyon, Geneva, Turin & Marseilles.

Due to the awkward nature of public transport to La Grave we recommend looking at a private transfer either direct from the airport or from the train station at Grenoble or Briancon (particularly if in a group of 3 or more people).

La Grave Accommodation

In a spectacular location amongst the Alps southern glaciers below the imposing 3983m La Meije, the small village of La Grave is all traditional stone and intimate accommodations. There is not a 5-star luxury hotel or Club Med resort within sight!

The Powderhounds will review La Grave in season 2019/20. In the meantime, check the Austrian equivalent at Krippenstein!
