La Grave means “severe,” and that is an apt description for this small ski resort in the Alps. Dominated by La Meije Mountain at 13,064 feet, it’s known for its off-piste ski runs — visitors navigate uncharted, virgin snow rather than packed and prepared terrain. With no groomed runs, trail maps or avalanche patrol, the risk is high — which is exactly why this pristine peak is a magnet for extreme skiers and adventure junkies. Ski at your own risk!
