Secret Stash: Steep Skiing and Untracked Powder in La Grave, France


La Grave, France is a ski station in the Hautes-Alpes area of the French Alps that's legendary for its steep lines, deep powder and surprising lack of people. There are no groomed slopes, no avalanche control and loads of glacial terrain so the area is clearly not for everyone and certainly not for weak skiers and snowboarders.

The place has a fierce reputation and has taken the lives of many skiers including American big-mountain skier Doug Coombs who died in 2006 while trying to rescue his friend. However, with one 2-stage gondola servicing 2100 meters of some of the heaviest lines many skiers will ever encounter, La Grave is a steep skier's paradise.

If you were to ski here you would have to make sure you have all the correct safety equipment.
