La Grave is the best known European freeride skiing resort which attracts those who are looking for extreme skiing and boarding from all over the world. La Grave is an unpatrolled high mountain region and can be dangerous. Be aware that you should hire a guide to explore the full range of skiing in La Grave. Between Dome Lauze peak (3600) and the village of Romanche (1500), there are no marked runs – you create your own. That is an exciting and usually crowd-free area.
Home to no more than about 500 permanent residents, La Grave is not a good choice if you're looking for nightclubs and active nightlife. Still, you will find a good selection of restaurants and a couple of bars. The Glaciers Bar and Les Vallons bar are most livelier places.
