Local facilities at La Grave are pretty basic. There are a few shops, five hotels and a couple of campsites (your neighbours will be cows and sheep).
Riders spending a season here will find that rent and a season's lift pass are cheap.
NightlifeOn the social scene, it's not exactly kicking. The pub le Boisdes fees runs some DJ nights, but party animals should head over to Les Deux Alps or Serre Chevalier.
