The luxurious Hotel Alparena is situated in the quiet Eucherts area with direct access to the pistes, overlooking the Tarentaise valley. The spacious bedrooms have a warm and welcoming alpine design, and are equipped with all of the amenities needed for a relaxing week in La Rosière. After a day on the slopes an extensive wellness area and delicious evening meals await you.

Piste-side location

Set in the quiet Eucherts district of La Rosière, the Alparena has an idyllic piste side location, allowing you to ski straight from the locker room - with over 160km of slopes across France and Italy, you certainly won't run out of areas to explore. The location creates amazing views across the mountains, which can be seen from most areas of the hotel including many of the bedrooms. 

Superior suites and bedrooms

Throughout the hotel, there is a warm blend of traditional alpine and contemporary style, with materials carefully picked to capture the ambiance and life of the mountains, creating a lovely atmosphere around the hotel. All of the rooms are furnished to a high standard with wood used throughout, comfortable furnishings and panoramic windows welcome you back after a day of skiing. If you are looking to have your own private space, the Superior Family Suites are an excellent choice - each equipped with a small kitchenette and living room with fireplace.

Relaxing wellness area

The hotel's spa room is amazing, with large windows that allow you to enjoy the incredible mountain views. Take a dip in the heated indoor pool or rejuvenate in the 34°c hydro massage pool. There is also a small pool for children. On the terrace, you could soak in a Nordic bath or enjoy the winter sun from a deckchair while taking in the fresh mountain air and panoramic views. There are several saunas and steam rooms accessible to use if you need to relieve your aches and pains. There is also a fitness centre with a variety of equipment if you wish to stay active on your ski holiday. The wellness area's natural architecture and magnificent views of the surrounding mountains allow you to truly relax and refresh.

Food and drink

Each day you can enjoy an extensive breakfast buffet with a range of sweet and savoury options, and when you return from a day of adventures a three course evening meal is served with a choice of main course. If you are looking for a spot for lunch the Solario restaurant has a lovely sun terrace overlooking the slopes, and has a range of classic alpine dishes and après snacks. 

La Rosière

  • Resort altitude of 1,850 metres
  • Over 150 kilometres of slopes 
  • 8 green runs, 27 blue runs, 38 red runs and 18 black runs 

Set high above the picturesque Upper Tarentaise valley, La Rosière is a brilliantly well thought out resort. Big enough to have all the facilities any skier could wish for, but also small enough to be known as one of the Alps’ friendliest resorts with beautiful wood and stone chalets, this resort is a perfect choice for couples and families wanting to spend some quality time together in a picturesque setting. 

Skiing and snowboarding in La Rosière

Due to it's high altitude, the La Rosière-Espace San Bernardo ski area has record levels of snowfall with it's ski season starting in December and running until the end of April. Its sunny, wide open slopes are snow-sure with the main lifts and pistes all radiating out directly from the centre of resort. Within the ski area, you'll find there is a mix of gentle blue runs, cruisy reds and tough blacks plus some renowned off-piste areas - so you're really spoilt for choice. The ski resort also caters for boarders, with a lot of free-riding and a snow park well set up for beginners and intermediates. New for this winter season the Dahu draglift has been updated to a four seater chairlift, this gives beginners easier access to two green slopes - Dahu and Cabri, and two blue slopes - Gelinotte and Marmottons. Skiers can also join onto the Plan du Repos chairlift and access the wider San Bernardo area.
