La Grave should be on the top of every skiers hit list. It’s one of the worlds most iconic steep ski areas with an incredible and utterly unique atmosphere that will get under your skin and appear in your dreams.
The lodge is perfectly positioned in the center of the beautiful village, just a 2 minute walk down to the lift which gives you access to around 2150 vertical meters of freeriding terrain. Enough to keep you busy for a life-time.
During the K2 Women’s camp you will receive coaching and guiding by the experts of the Skiers -Lodge-Guide-Service. The highlights of the “adventure of La Grave” include the endless powder runs with legendary descents from the Girose glacier, with direct lines of 2300m explaining why so many riders come back year after year to enjoy free-riding with one of the most spectacular mountain scenery in the Alps.
If conditions are not ideal skiing in La Grave due to strong wind on higher altitude or high avalanche risk, we use our mini buses to visit any one of the ten neighboring resorts with their own micro climates. Within a 25 minutes drive to a hour we cover the ski resorts, Alp d Huez, Vaujany to the west or drive over the Col du Lautaret to the east to reach the resorts at Serre Chevalier, Montgenevre and Sestrierre in Italy. Your guide from Skiers Lodge will stay with the group for the entire ski week and will organize the best optimal area to ski and where.
Your guide may also propose a day or two of ski touring during your stay with us! La Grave and the surrounding area is an ideal mountain base for ski touring. Some of the classic alpine tours can be accessed within a simple one hour hike up into the most spectacular terrain. The tours are too numerous to mention individually, but several are too exceptional not to be mentioned: Daily tours – Les Trois évêchés, Le Pic Blanc, Le Combeynot , Le massif du Goleon (new refuge) and Col du Replat. Multiple days – Enfetchores and Tours de la Meije, , , …
Apart from backcountry skiing, other attractions include the free testing of the K2 Freeride Collection skis, skins, bindings, poles and safety equipment.
Skis by K2 BackSide Adventure with pre-cut skins tip- tail holes and a skin clip arc to make attaching the skins super easy. All our backcoutry skis are mounted with Marker Tour bindings.
Our K2 Women’s Alliance ski guides will assist you with valuable tips and technical support. Last but not least, particular attention will be given to safety: apart from learning how to ski and travel safely in the mountains, our safety course includes instruction on how to use avalanche search equipment and practical training in avalanche rescue.
Each day will depend on the weather & snow conditions and so it’s impossible to set out a full itinerary. One thing is for sure, your local and insanely experienced guides will ensure to provide the best skiing they can with the conditions that day.
But just so you have an idea, here’s rough outline of what we’re going to get up to:
Wake up, eat a yummy breakfast, go skiing, come home, have chat about your awesome lines over a beer in the legendary K2 Bar, eat a delicious 4 course dinner, sleep, wake up, repeat.
In addition to the above there will be some expert safety talks and clinics, covering avalanche awareness, safe mountain travel, off-piste technique and crevasse rescue.
