Vallon de la Selle - descent on Saint Christophe

The Vallon de la Selle is a small descent in the high mountains. The start is from the top of the Dome de La Lauze at 3568 meters. This freeride off-piste descent takes you to the village of Saint Christophe en Oisans in the Vénéon valley at 1440m and is one of the off-piste skiing itineraries at the La Grave ski resort that is accessible allowing you to return to the slopes again at a good time. This freeride skiing route is located on the south face and is exposed to the sun very early in the morning. You have to have the right timing to benefit from snow that is not too hard or too soft. Ski down the wide slopes of 35 ° with more than 1000m of vertical descent. At the level of the Refuge de La Selle 2673m, we let ourselves ride along the 5km long valley and soak up the wild and high mountain atmosphere. After passing the Torrent du Diable, you only have to ski the last fields before the village and arriving at the Bar de la Cordée. A Snowlegend shuttle or taxi will be waiting for you to return to La Grave. Discovery day with Snowlegend.
