Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

La Grave

Esf de la Meije
Need to brush up on your ski skills? Head to Esf de la Meije to book a couple of lessons to help you get up to speed.
Couloir le Banane
A route with a kink; Couloir le Banane requires a good level of ability to master.
Serre Chevalier
With Le Grave closed at least two days of the week due to tempestuous weather, head over to Serre Chevalier, skis in-tow.
Walking
Mountain Guide Office
Get in touch with the Mountain Guide Office to find an experienced, enthusiastic guide.
Ice Climbing
While a wall of ice may be somewhat daunting, those with a taste for adrenaline should scale the frozen waterfalls of Comde de Malaval or Lautaret; if that doesn't get your blood pumping, nothing will.
Philippe Andre
With 25 years of experience behind him, it's hardly surprising Philippe Andre's books are fit-to-bursting with avid ski bunnies.
Le Castillan Spa
Le Castillan Spa proves that size isn't everything with a small but incredible stylish space that boasts both a sauna and a gym.
Les Chalets de la Meije
Meije Massage
While Meije Massage doesn't offer spa facilities, it does offer massage - and incredibly good ones at that.
Pan de Rideau
Danger abounds at Pan de Rideau, where falling simply isn't an option.
Tree Skiing
Weave in and out of trees at 2,000-metres; just make sure you don't run into, er, trouble.
Vallon de la Selle
Vallon de la Selle; one of our all-time favourites, with descents that really get the adrenaline pumping.
Cross-Country Skiing
There's nothing quite as relaxing as cross-country skiing; take in forests, lakes and mountains across serene, undulating slopes.
Pelle Lang
A legend among ski guides, Pelle pulls in the punters with expert knowledge of the area and a cutting-edge coaching style.
Girose de Droitte
A route with attitude; Girose de Droitte is a spectacular ski from beginning to end.
Trifide Coloirs
Made up of three routes; Trifide Coloirs is sure to challenge even the most seasoned skiier.
