Ski Lifts in La Grave

La Grave’s lift system is limited to a two-stage gondola and a couple of T-bars. The La Grave – la Meije lift pass entitles the holder to either free or discounted skiing at Les Deux Alpes, Alpe d’Huez and Serre Chevalier, subject to conditions.

La Grave Ski Lifts

The main slopes in La Grave are served by a ‘stopping-and-starting pulse’ six-seat gondola in clusters of five which take about half an hour to reach their final destination. They stop at P1 at 1800m, and Peyrou d’Amont at 2400m. Technically it’s described as a two-stage gondola because the P1 stop does not involve a change of gondola. There is also a modern chair lift at the very top of the slopes on the Girose glacier, which enables skiers to return to neighbouring Les Deux Alpes. 

Traditionally, La Grave’s lifts used not to open until January or even February, but in recent years it has opened as early as December 18, closing on May 8, depending on snow depth and other weather conditions.

La Grave Ski Lift Pass

Currently, the lift pass covers skiing not only in La Grave and Les Deux Alpes but also those who buy a lift pass for 4 days or more are entitled to a 25% discount if buying a one-day pass for Serre Chevalier and Alpe d’Huez. Holders of season passes are entitled to free skiing at Le Chazelet if bad weather closes the La Grave bubble. Full details and online purchase facilities are on La Grave’s website.
