Vallons de la Meije Classic Variations Map

A direct variation on the La Grave classic that stays further skiers left of the bowl and leads directly to the mid-station. Great, albeit shorter skiing than the mega-classic - getting your straight back to the mid-station and back on the lift for more. From the top of the cable car, descend a few metres before heading right to the Meije valley. Head down the wide steep slope, through to a narrower section and before the long moraine, traverse left back towards the cable car. Beware of avalanche risk as you head back towards the mid-station.



Serious gradient of 30-38 degrees where a real risk of slipping exists.

Medium Exposure (E2)
