Exposition

La Grave lies northwest of the Parc National des Ecrins on the foot of the majestic La Meije (3984 meters), causing some mighty three and a few four thousanders to be lying (Barre des Ecrins 4105 meters) in the backyard. Peaks that propel every cloud in the west up and force them to snow out. So snow here comes from a real wastage (or a weststau). This is a situation that can occur at any time in winter. But La grave is serious terrain and it needs a big dump before it really is in shape. There are winters where this happened already in December, but the unwritten rule is La Grave is best from the middle of February. And you'll scratch your surface for sure. 'C'est le free ride.'

With bad weather

With a huge dump from the west the Col de Leuteret, the connection between Serre Chevalier and La grave is usually closed. Make sure you're there in time. The forests between P1 at 1800 meters and the middle station at 2400 meters offer enough cover on the days that hell breaks loose here.
