La Grave-Tour de la Meije in March
Tour de la Meije: A grand ski tour
Three days are dedicated to the Tour de la Meije, with two nights spent in huts. Starting by skinning to the top of the Dome de Lauze we ski 2,600′ down the south side of La Grave to the Glacier de la Selle, skin to the Breche du Rateau (steep climbing with crampons and ice axe over the col), then ski another 2,600′ down into the Chatelleret Valley. This south facing basin can be a solarium on our way up to the Refuge du Promontoire where we will stay the night. This is one of the coolest huts in the alps, literally perched on the lower flank of La Meije.
Next day we climb up the Breche du la Meije, then rappelling 50 meters onto the North Face. If weather isn’t favorable skiing the amazing Les Enfetchores to La Grave. Otherwise traversing right below La Meije’s massive North Face, climbing the long couloir Passage du Serret du Savon and onto the Refuge du L’Aigle.
There are three options for ending our tour below the La Meije massif; Les Enfetchores, Glacier du Tabuchet, or Glacier du L’Homme, all culminating in over 6000′ of skiing on incredible terrain looking down into the La Grave Valley.
