La Grave, de la Meije is not your normal ski resort. Ski resorts adapt to skiers whereas here the skier must adapt to the mountain. Besides Chad, we will utilize another experienced professional local guide, allowing the guests to enter terrain otherwise inaccessible in a safe manner.

Each day all will attend a morning safety briefing and will provide full support in planning, safety and coordinating to ensure we have a successful day.
