La Rosière

An attractive, friendly and snow-sure resort with superb views

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.

Its sunny, wide open slopes are snow-sure (the resort itself is at the same altitude as Val d’Isère), with the main lifts and pistes all radiating out directly from the resort centre, with simply sensational views across the valley to Les Arcs. With a mix from gentler blue runs and cruisy reds to tougher blacks on the La Thuile side and renowned off-piste areas, the Espace San Bernardo ski area stretches from La Rosière up and over the 2,640m Petit St Bernard Pass and the French/Italian border, to incorporate more great skiing on the La Thuile side of the mountain.

Added value

50% off ski/snowboard hire or carriage when you pre-book your lift pass (must be booked 6 weeks before departure)

  • 135 apartments

Located in the pretty Eucherts area of the resort these fantastic apartments have stunning panoramic views and superb facilities.

Cross country

There are good nursery slopes beside the main lifts and blue slopes close by for easy progression. Wide gentle pistes provide a good playground to learn on.

This resort is really well suited to intermediates, with plenty of hugely enjoyable red pistes and lovely tree-lined runs dropping below the resort. Keen skiers will also enjoy the more varied terrain on the Italian side.

There are some good black runs, especially down to La Thuile and a lot of safe off-piste between the runs. Heli-skiing is also available.

The wide open slopes are good for free-riding and the terrain park above the village and boardercross provide plenty to entertain keen boarders.
