Linked to Les 2 Alpes is the world-famous off-piste area of La Grave. Accessible from the the 2 Alpes glacier by ski-tow, this area is best visited with a guide/ski-instructor.
La Grave is a place of awe-inspiring but menacing and savage beauty, dominated by the jutting multiple-peaks of La Meije which reach 3983m (13,067 feet). The exhilarating but gruelling descent of 2150 metres (7054 feet) to the village needs to be treated with the utmost respect. Both the scale and the potential dangers are considerable, with gaping crevasses and steep couloirs. That said, there is an incredible amount of varied terrain here – from trees to couloirs, to open bowls and valleys – where you can practise new skills and have a ski experience you are sure not to forget!
