Backcountry & Splitboarding Overview

MINT Snowboarding since 2006. World Snow Award Winners in 2016 & 2017!  Covid 19 News



A resort for the serious rider, with kilometers of  lift accessed challenging backcountry terrain, where else for MINT Snowboarding’s Advanced Backcountry Course in 2020!

At 1475m with a summit height of 3568m, the isolated village of La Grave is a place of many wonders, a serious big mountain environment where a powder day and fresh lines last a week. Here you are more likely to see an Ibex than another person!

For the locals, La Grave is the place they escape too in order to avoid the queues. Having heard stories about its epic lines and snow those in the know would ski tour over from Les Deux Alpes before the lifts were built.

With only 2 lifts, and just a couple of secured un-pisted runs on the Glacier de la Girose, it offers nothing for beginner or intermediate riders but everything and more for the advanced experienced snowboarder who’s ready for some big mountain adventures. It is a true expert only resort. Think steep couloirs, exposed lines and more drops than you can shake a stick at. 


La Grave Telecabine


The quaint and traditional town is sleepy in comparison to other resorts, the apres scene tends to be tales of the days adventures told over a cold beer. After a day of extreme snowboarding there’s no need for more, just an early night to recover and prepare for another huge day ahead is all you need!!
