La Grave Backcountry Skiing Week

…and the video:

It was great to be back in the French Alps again, running one of our La Grave Off piste Skiing Holidays –  after a difficult few months for the village due to the main road closing last April due to a landslip.  There is now a relief road open to light vehicles though, so the access situation is a little easier again.

Complicated avalanche conditions down in La Grave last week didn’t stop us finding plenty of good snow, with a great team.  During the week we skied La Grave, Puy St Vincent, Les Chazalets and the Vallee de la Claree – highlights incuded a visit to the remote Combe Lardiere, where we followed fresh wolf prints up the valley and a superb final run down off the Signal de La Grave to finish the week.
