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.
Tree Skiing
Weave in and out of trees at 2,000-metres; just make sure you don't run into, er, trouble.
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.
Trifide Coloirs
Made up of three routes; Trifide Coloirs is sure to challenge even the most seasoned skiier.
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.
