We have extended the road trips to explore other resorts in the Piedmont Region in Italy that takes longer time to reach than one hour from Skiers Lodge!
La Grave is surrounded by micro-climates! A micro-climate is the climate of a small area that is different from the area around it. It may be warmer or colder, wetter or drier, or more or less prone of getting more snow.
If conditions are not ideal skiing in La Grave due to strong wind on higher altitude or high avalanche risk, we use our mini buses to visit any one of the ten neighboring resorts with their own micro climates. Within a 25 minutes drive to a hour we cover the ski resorts, Alp d Huez, Vaujany to the west or drive over the Col du Lautaret to the east to reach the resorts at Serre Chevalier, Montgenevre and Sestrierre in Italy.
The vans play important role of this concept and gives us flexibility of an early morning start to find the most optimal backcountry ski terrain. We cover huge terrain with big vertical drop. We drive lots of milage on the road during certain weeks to find the most optimal backcountry ski terrain but avoid longer drive than one hour getting there!

We might even travel far as to Alagna or Macugnaga.
If you wish to include a couple of day or days of heli-skiing during the ski week you should be a group group of 4 friends.
