Justin our friendly Ski Chalet Specialist in La Rosière
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!READ MORE
