Tour de la Meije 2020

Les Écrins is a massive mountain range with more than 100 peaks over 3000m, wild and stunning. Our suggestion is one of the most clasical skimountaineering routes in the Alps, visiting surprisingly located mountain huts, traversing stunning mountains, riding endless slopes and crossing impressive passes. This 4 day hut to hut route starts and finishes in la Grave, freeride european Mecca, and goes around one of the most beautiful alpine peaks, La Meije 3.984m.

Day 1; Trip to la Grave. Meet the guide. Accomodation in town.

Day 2: We take the gondola and ski couple runs before putting skins on and summit Dóme de Lauze 3.568m, from where we ski down to la Selle Refuge at 2.673m.
Elev gain: +100m -900m

Day 3; Climbing la Selle Glacier we’ll reach Breche du Rateau 3.335m, and we’ll ski down towards Valleé des Étançons and climb to Promontoire Refuge 3.082m.
Elev gain: +1.100m -750m

Day 4; Today’s route will earn a place on our memories. We’ll climb towards the mythical Breche de la Meije 3.357m, where we’re going to need the rope to drop into Meije Glacier. Passing under the impressive north face of La Meije and climbing Serret du Savon won’t leave us indiferent. The arrival at Refuge de L’aigle wil be the cherry on the cake for this very alpine day.

Day 5; Today, two of the best descent on the Alps are waiting for us, Homme Galcier or Trebuchet Glacier deliver us over 2000m descent to La Grave along a spectacular scenario.
