La Grave in France Resort Guide
You can access the 3600m summit by taking a 3 stage Gondola and a drag lift then ski to the village at 1450m. This is one of the longest lift access vertical descents (2150m) in skiing and the off piste possibilities are endless. There is a wide array of couloirs, glaciers and wide open bowls you can navigate to get down the mountain. Safety equipment is also recommended and can be hired in resort.
Guiding is highly recommended and available through the Local Bureau des Guides as well as Skierslodge and Snowlegend. More info to follow.
