Due to the nature of the terrain in La Grave, we believe this trip is not for everyone.
In stead of a fixed date with a flexible location, we realised that we needed to throw things upside down if we wanted to ride some of the most legendary places in the Alps in optimal conditions. To make this work we have adopted the system of surf contests, we have a waiting period of six weeks in which we’ll hold this Special Powderchase. Once the conditions seem great for La Grave, we’ll call it and you have 3-5 days to get stuff arranged with your workand your loved ones.
Due to the exposed and high alpine nature of the terrain in La Grave, we believe this trip is not for everyone. Whether on skis or a snowboard, you have to be an accomplished freerider, comfortable in steep terrain and be able to control your speed precisely. You have to be fit and you have to have your equipment sorted out. We would prefer to have had you on a regular Powderchase before so we know what your skillset is like. When in doubt please contact us and we can help you decide if this trip is for you.
We believe that the La Grave episode of the excellent series A Skier’s Journey, by Jordan Manley can give you an insight into what this place is about.
