Discover : Vallon de Chancel are the easiest off piste descents of La Grave ski area.

There are many discoveries to be made on this itinerary! The Refuge Chancel is found at 2508m. The food is excellent with panoramic views and of the Patou and Banana couloirs ... It is great to sleep there and wake up already on the slope.
