The Majestic Lady 'the Meije'

she is Impressive yet intimidating, she offers her beauty to those who come to seek her. The level is demanding, but the reward is phenomenal.

From the summit of Pic Blanc, 'the Meije' seems inaccessible. The stories told precede her and skiers usually prefer to be content with the Sarenne track rather than venturing to the 'Majestic Lady'.
And yet ... surmounted by its peak at 3,983 metres above sea level, the Meije invites you to explore, to endure the adrenaline rush. But definitely not in all conditions! safety is paramount and an instructor from esf Alpe d'Huez accompanies you for the day, and guides you in the meanders of this off-piste giant.
