La GraveLa Grave is a community nestled into the Hautes-Alpes in France where big mountain skiing is accessed via a closed, two stage, pulsed gondola system. The area is patrolled, but does not undergo formal avalanche control resulting in a more backcountry feel than that of a resort. As they say on their website "One marked piste on the glacier, otherwise each run is to imagine...".
Sounds pretty rad right?! Well, check out just how rad it can get. I found two short videos that set the vibe for La Grave.
The first is aptly named La Grave, and has been put together by The Faction Collective.
The second is episode 1, season 7 of Behind the Line. Enjoy!
