By exploring the domain of La Grave-La Meije, you are not in a typical ski resort.
This is a real mountain environment as you head down in an unmarked, and non-patrolled area at your own risk.
You must be aware of all mountain hazards including rocks, avalanches, crevasses, and be ready for the possibility of drastic weather changes.
“In 30 minutes, the cable-car takes you to 3200m.”
In 30 minutes, the cable-car (téléphérique) takes you to 3200m, where you can create your own itinerary for the descent.
