La Rosière Ski Resort

La Rosière ski resort is an Alpine gem with a friendly atmosphere and superb skiing. Located high up on the road that climbs towards the Petit St. Bernard, the village is built in a traditional style amongst a wooded area. Accessible by car or bus from the more well-known ski resorts of La Plagne, Les Arcs, Val d’Isère and Tignes, La Rosière ski resort offers the opportunity to make the most of the vast skiing in the area. In the evenings the bars and restaurants come alive and are a great place to relax, enjoy some drinks and meet the ever-friendly locals.

The ski resort is part of the Espace San Bernardo ski area, which links La Rosière and the Italian ski resort of La Thuile. There is 160km of slopes to enjoy on the piste map if you get a full lift pass. Skiing in the area is mainly suited for families and intermediates. However, there are some runs to keep more advanced skiers entertained.

The village itself has a rustic Alpine vibe. The chalets still have the traditional Savoyard style architecture. One of the other plus points is the amazing scenery. You can take in the beautiful Isère Valley mountain backdrop on the slopes and in the village. A great way to unwind and admire the natural surroundings of the area.

Ski Areas in La Rosière

Ski Areas in La Rosière

La Rosière is lift linked with the Italian ski resort of La Thuile and has a great snow record. The two ski resorts form a substantial south-facing ski area of approximately 160km called the Espace San Bernardo. The only drawback of the link is that it is a drag lift, which can be difficult for some beginners. The ski area is best suited to families and intermediate skiers, but there is still plenty here for everyone to enjoy themselves.

La Rosière ski resort is best suited to intermediates, with wide cruisey blues and some steeper reds; perfect for practicing turns and building up technique on. Beginners won’t have too much trouble skiing here but if you’re unfamiliar with drag lifts you may find it hard to get to nearby La Thuile over the border in Italy. Advanced skiers and freeriders will enjoy the thrilling black runs and good off-piste sections on offer.
