La Grave

The village of La Grave has settled its stone and slate houses on a sunny slope in the heart of the Massif des Ecrins, facing the impressive Peak de la Meije that rises to an altitude of 3,983 m. La Grave is a Mecca for mountain climbing and also a key venue for skiers seeking thrills who come from all over the world to challenge each other on a 2,150 m vertical drop for the yearly Derby de la Meije.
