Last Thursday the téléphérique in La Grave was closed, so I had a sought after rest day. The following day it was still closed so we hitched a ride with Swedish guide Per Ås to the little ski resort of le Chazelet where we ended up having a wonderful ski day.
Nothing but the kid’s slope was initially open, but as the day went on the two other lifts, that are actually serving some decent skiing, opened up. We where almost alone on the mountain and where skiing fresh tracks all day.
Yesterday, finally, they opened up the La Grave gondola. Being fortunate, we got to ski with the locals who showed us just how great this mountain can be.
