Ski range from 1,200m - 2,641m

La Rosiere has an impressive ski area straddling the French/Italian border with high altitude slopes and an excellent snow record thanks to the micro climate of the Mont Blanc area. It makes a perfect choice for intermediates in particular, with significant off-piste options. Skiing into the Aosta valley in Italy for lunch is a must and just three lifts and a lovely 3km piste will take you over the Petit Saint Bernard pass to some scenic tree-lined red runs into La Thuile. A delightful tree-lined run on the French side is Fontaine Froide, with a 750m descent through the woods to Les Ecudets.

There are some tempting black runs for advanced skiers too with an impressive 1200m drop down to Seez and experts will enjoy the challenging Muret black run descending from Les Suches at over 2,000m before joining the red run closer to the village below.

Even beginners will be happy here as the nursery slopes are so accessible from the village centre right next to the main lift system, allowing an easy transition to the blue slopes in the same area. Wide gentle pistes within the lift system permit learners to explore the mountain earlier than in many other resorts and perhaps share lunch at one of the mountain restaurants with more experienced skiers in a mixed ability group.

It’s also a great ski area for boarders with several dedicated zones within the purpose built snow park 500m long complete with rails, tables and slides plus a boarder cross area. True adrenalin junkies may also fancy a go at snow kiting which has its own recognised area at the top of the resort or even a heliskiing trip!

ACTIVITIES FOR NON SKIERS

La Rosiere boasts two main ski schools, both with English-speaking instructors and a good range of small classes (max. 8) to suit all levels from tinies to bold teenagers. It particularly prides itself on its family-friendly atmosphere and is one of only a few French resorts deserving recognition as a “Famille Plus” resort. Children and parents will appreciate the fantastic sunshine, accessible nursery slopes, two snow gardens and specially designated toboggan areas for the little ones. We strongly recommend pre-booking group tuition for any age and our Ski Total Representative in resort will be able to provide additional advice on arrival.

NIGHTLIFE & APRES SKI

The gentle après-ski scene takes place mainly in a few welcoming bars in the charming, Savoyarde centre and the weekly torch-lit descent is popular too. The scene is friendly and inclusive rather than especially lively or for the highly sophisticated.

The bars and restaurants are the perfect place to discover the delicious local cuisine and sample tasty specialities like raclette and tartiflette and also dishes clearly influenced by the proximity to Italy so guests will be warmly received and enjoy a high standard of local cuisine on the chalet staff night off. Other resort facilities include a fitness centre and gym, 2 spas, an ice rink in the neighbouring hamlet of Les Eucherts, a 2 screen cinema and several boutiques and shops.

SKIING IN La Rosiere

Ski range from 1,200m – 2,641m

It’s the sunny position, great variety of skiing and incredible 360 degree views that make staying in La Rosiere such a joy.

La Rosiere may not be quite as famous as its neighbouring resorts of Val d’Isere or Les Arcs, but that’s part of its appeal and it may surprise some to learn that it ranks within the top 10 biggest ski areas in France. It boasts authentic French charm and character with attractive clusters of low lying buildings and individual chalets of local stone and wood forming the heart of the village high above the Tarentaise valley. It’s quieter, and less developed than its neighbours, yet offers equally great skiing with 160km of slopes in the Northern Alps’ only truly international ski area, mostly above 1,850m and deserves its reputation as one of France’s sunniest and friendliest resorts. Venturing over into Italy for lunch on the La Thuile side is not to be missed, with some fabulous long red and more challenging blacks here too.
