Couloirs du Lac

  • La Grave, Francia

Route description

La Grave is a legendry off-piste playground with an impressive vertical distance. Pretty much all the routes are worthwhile, but the best are the Couloirs du Lac which offer the perfect introduction to steeper skiing. These routes are even better when combined with the Girose Glacier. From the classic Chancel side (also accessible from the Girose Glacier), take a sharp right turn towards Breche de Pacave and continue down a wide slope. From here you can reach all the couloirs. ‘Patou’ is located on the skiers right and ‘Le Banane’ is located in the centre.
Steep couloirs but not sustained. Short sections of 40°
