Freeski Mountaineering Camp 2014 (28.3.-30.3.2014)

“She’s the boss!” At least that’s the way Joe Vallone puts it. He’s referring to La Meije, the 3974 metre high mountain that governs the lives of everyone in the nearby village of La Grave and any skiing they may do. The small ski resort of La Grave cowers 2500 metres below the spectacularly rugged rock and ice of the north face of La Meije. Joe is originally from America. As an avid freeskier he came to La Grave many years ago and has stayed on ever since. He was one of the participants in the Freeski Mountaineering Camp, an event that was organised as part of the GORE TEX Experience Tour. The participants were accompanied by legendary freeriders Seb Michaud and Bruno Compagnet and professional alpine mountaineer Christophe Dumarest. Joe and five other ambitious freeskiing enthusiasts from all over Europe were chosen to take part in the event which involved GORE-TEX® athletes Seb Michaud, Bruno Compagnet and Christophe Dumarest guiding them down the spectacular descents and steep couloirs of La Meije. read more »
