"This was our first time in La Rosiere and it will not be our last. The excellent skiing was complemented brilliantly by the Chalet Gelinotte hosts who looked after us so well during the week." -

LA ROSIERE, MONTVALEZAN - FRANCE


Resort


La Rosiere is without a doubt an up and coming resort with plenty to offer both on and off the piste. A child-friendly resort with unusual south facing pistes set on a plateau in the Haute Tarentaise valley. With its fabulous sunshine record and friendy vibe is easy to see why to resort surprises and delights guests time after time.



Snow Record


La Rosiere has an excellent snow record with its high altitude slopes stretching from the resort up to 2650m. The ski area enjoys an enviable position on the border with Italy giving it the advantage of catching weather systems coming from both directions and also often has above average snowfalls for the Tarentaise region. Almost all the skiing is above 1850m so the slopes hold their snow well and much of it is north facing, helping preserve the good snow conditions even in prolonged warm weather. The snow stays put long after the season has ended.












The Skiing


La Rosiere is linked to La Thuile in Italy to form the Espace San Bernardo ski area ranging from 1200m to 2650m and offering almost 160km of piste. It caters for all abilities with over 80 runs covering a good mix of terrain; the wide open slopes near the top giving way to attractive wooded trails closer to resort. There's also good off-piste which is patrolled but unpisted and there are plenty of other off-piste options further afield for those looking for powder.


La Rosiere is incredibly child-friendly with high quality, easily-accessible nursery slopes close to the main village of La Rosiere 1850 and Les Eucherts. However its abundance of intermediate blue and red runs, 15 blacks and 2 snowparks means it caters for everyone. Over the Petit St Bernard pass and across the Italian border into La Thuile you'll find several steeper, more challenging drops. The Italian side provides the lure of fabulous authentic Italian cuisines to attract the hungry skier at lunchtime! The slopes are generally uncrowded, well-marked and well-groomed with high speed chairlifts covering all the main pistes. For a detailed review of each ski run see our La Rosiere piste guide below, you will find La Rosiere has plenty to offer.













Apres & other activities


La Rosiere offers a great range of sports, leisure and relaxation activities. You can enjoy, husky rides, paragliding and snow kiting. There is a 10-pin bowling alley and ice rink in Les Eucherts and the resort also offers swimming, indoor climbing, a fitness centre and cinema. Its saunas, jacuzzis and spas offer simple relaxation if you really just want to unwind. The resort has a good choice of restaurants and of course at lunch time you have the choice of authentic French or Italian dining depending on which side of the border you choose to ski!


La Rosiere provides great facilities and activities for kids and they'll love the weekly firework display and torchlit descent, sledging and of course petting the beautiful St Bernard dogs in the town centre. The resort organises special kids' activities such as treasure hunts, games and shows to keep them entertained so families find it a great destination for the little ones. La Rosiere doesn't neglect its older guests in its weekly programme with concerts, live bands and various theme nights throughout the season. Our hosts will pick you up a weekly programme before you arrive.



Nightlife


Whilst La Rosiere may be a smaller resort than some it still offers some lively night spots open until late. There are a few bars in Les Eucherts, for example the Kitzbuhel bar, with 6 lane bowling alley, pool table and weekly live music, or the Moo Bar lounge and nightclub. For additional après-ski and nightlife there is a free minibus service from Les Eucherts to the main part of La Rosiere 1850 until 11pm. There you'll find lively après ski until late. You could even show off your vocal skills with 'Bandioke' at Petit Danois, which is essentially karaoke with a band at one of the resort's liveliest venues. And if you're staying out later than 11, there's the lovely streetlamp-lit walk through the woods, that we call 'The Narnia Walk', which is an easy 15 minute stroll back from La Rosiere to Les Eucherts.
