La Rosiere

La Rosiere is a great choice for beginners and families in the heart of the Haute Tarentaise, on the Italian border. There are some exciting new ski developments planned for 2018/19 - read on below...

Why La Rosière Ski Resort?

  • Family-friendly resort
  • Attractive and sunny
  • Great beginner's area 

Read our blog to find out about how La Rosière created a new mountainside of skiing!

La Rosiere is a friendly south-facing resort built in an attractive chalet style in keeping with local architecture. On the snowfronts or from your accommodation, you will
find yourself on the balcony of the Tarentaise, with a fully south facing view spanning more than 180°. Enjoy the sunsets and the resourcing light.

La Rosiere is linked with La Thuile in Italy, it’s the only Savoyard resort to offer an international ski area of 160km of marked pisted runs (Espace San Bernardo). La Rosiere is a very family-oriented purpose-designed resort with new additions being made every year, such as the 1km adventure fun track dedicated to the the mascot of Espace San-Bernardo. 

During winter of 2018, La Rosière-Espace San Bernardo area accumulated more than 11m of snow. Only a few kilometers as the crow flies from the Mont Blanc and the Col du Petit Saint-Bernard, the resort benefits from favourable weather conditions which guarantee an excellent snowfall from mid-December until mid-April and makes it one of the resorts with the highest snowfall in the northern Alps.

La Rosiere sits high above Bourg St Maurice, facing Les Arcs across the Tarentaise Valley. La Rosiere is part of the commune of Montvalezan, comprising around 40 hamlets. The commune’s 14 chapels are the jewels in the crown of its rich heritage. Today the resort revolves around two autonomous hubs: the centre of the resort and Les Eucherts village, each with its own shops, high-speed chairlift and ski-lesson meeting points, linked via a pathway through the forest.

In December 2018, La Rosiere opened the new Mont Valaisan sector. As well as its gentle pistes on the La Rosière side, since 2019 you can enjoy 5 new red pistes in the Mont Valaisan sector, which you can enjoy whilst gaining access to the ski area’s new highest peak of 2800m, giving views of the Mont Blanc and the Mont Pourri . This new expansion completes the choice on offer for the more athletic skiers, on the north facing Aoste Valley side.

Located on the French side of the ski area, to the right of the Redoute Ruinée Fort, this investment of 15 million euros created 5 new red pistes with 2 new person chairlifts: The Moulins and the Mont Valaisan. You can now discover a more technical ski area with more freeride possibilities.

La Rosiere vs Les Eucherts

The original village of La Rosiere turned 50 in 2011 but the most recent development has been in Les Eucherts, highlighted by high-calibre slope-side accommodation. Les Eucherts is a newly developed area of La Rosiere which sits to the East of the main village. Each has its own amenities including shops, a high-speed chairlift and ski lesson meeting points. The development of Les Eucherts incorporates some excellent shops and restaurants, the tourist office, an ice rink and bowling complex and a state-of-the-art nursery as well as ski-school facilities, all only a few metres apart. It’s all extremely family-friendly so it’s no surprise that the village has the highest official ‘Famille Plus Montagne’ award.

No need to take the car if you want to get from the centre of La Rosiere to Les Eucherts. Just take a short walk through the forest! The forest footpath is around one kilometre long and floodlit at night. It’s the perfect place for a stroll, whatever time of the day or night.

History

An important trans-Alpine route linking Savoie to the Aosta Valley, the Roman road through the Petit Saint Bernard Pass was built in the late 1800s. Because of its strategic cross-border position, the Petit Saint Bernard Pass and the mountains surrounding it have been the setting for many events and battles, including the annexation of Savoy by France in 1860, and the attacks by the Italian army in 1940. The Espace San Bernardo still shows the scars of its past battles, and to this day symbolically links France, Italy and Europe via its slopes.

LA ROSIERE SKI AREA

9th March 2020: Due to the exceptional situation in Italy, lift links to ski resorts in Italy will be closed for the remainder of the 2019/20 season. However, the La Rosière ski area itself is open in its entirety. Snow conditions on the French side are currently superb with 4m10 of snow at the top of the Mont Valaisan (2800m altitude).

La Rosière is the only resort in Savoie to boast an international ski area, thanks to its liaison with the Italian ski resort of La Thuile in the Aosta Valley. Thrill-seekers can try their hand at various different disciplines in the “Snowzone” (snowpark, snowcross, and boardercross), in the officially-recognized snowkite area on the Petit-Saint-Bernard pass, or even off the beaten track on a heli-skiing trip. Those looking for a more sedate outing can glide down the long slopes that wind down through the forest into La Thuile, overlooked by the magnificent Mont Blanc massif.

The south-facing resort has a high sunshine record and an excellent snow record (with north facing slopes in Italy). If you have your own transport, you can ski in Les Arcs across the valley and its linked neighbour, La Plagne. You can also reach Sainte Foy by heading up the valley, and a little further still lie Tignes les Brevieres, Tignes 1800 and Val d’Isère.

LA ROSIERE SKIING

LA ROSIERE BEGINNERS

La Rosière is a good choice for beginners, thanks to its well-suited terrain and well-designed village base which means that your equipment rentals, the ski school and the nursery slopes are just a few steps from your apartment. Great if you have children! 

La Rosière’s ski area has two free ski lifts open every day for beginners: Manessier drag lift, plus the Lutins magic carpet. The Lutins covered magic carpet, with its adjoining green slope at the bottom of the slopes in Les Eucherts, is the ideal place for youngsters wanting make their first tentative turns in a safe environment. Both the lift and nursery slope are easily visible from the bottom of the slopes, which means parents can keep an eye on their children’s progress on foot or on skis. Once they have mastered the green slope, they can progress on Dahu and Cabri green slopes.

Petit Saint Bernard adventure slope - with fun and educational features to tackle, the green slope through the forest has been transformed into a fun and educational playground for young (and not-so-young) skiers! Head up the Lièvre Blanc drag lift then follow the resort mascot, the Petit St Bernard dog, back down the slopes! 

LA ROSIERE INTERMEDIATES

Intermediates have a huge choice of blue and red pistes on both sides of the border that run out to the peaks of Le Belvedere and Chaz Dura. You get a real sense of travel as you enter Italy, and the Nuova and San Bernardo runs combined give a wonderful 11km run down to La Thuile (Italy) for a lunchtime pizza!

In December 2018, La Rosiere opened the new Mont Valaisan sector. As well as its gentle pistes on the La Rosière side, since 2019 you can enjoy 5 new red pistes in the Mont Valaisan sector, which you can enjoy whilst gaining access to the ski area’s new highest peak of 2800m, giving views of the Mont Blanc and the Mont Pourri . This new expansion completes the choice on offer for the more athletic skiers, on the north facing Aoste Valley side.

Located on the French side of the ski area, to the right of the Redoute Ruinée Fort, this investment of 15 million euros created 5 new red pistes with 2 new person chairlifts: The Moulins and the Mont Valaisan. You can now discover a more technical ski area with more freeride possibilities.

If you have a pint-sized freestyler in your clan, take them to the mini-snowpark, which is specially-designed for kids. Here, they can hone their tricks in safety on age-appropriate features.

LA ROSIERE EXPERTS

Despite being primarily a family ski destination, advanced skiers can still find plenty to entertain themselves here if they use a little creative thinking. About 15% of the terrain is rated black with 16 runs to choose from in the Espace San Bernardo - the most challenging arguably the 3.6km long Franco Berthod piste.

LA ROSIERE OFF-PISTE

Off-piste areas can be found between the pistes and in the designated freeride area around the top of the Educets chairlift. More serious off-piste can be accessed just outside the lift network. There is also freeride opportunities in the new Mont Valasian sector.

LA ROSIERE SNOWBOARDERS

For snowboarders, most of the lifts are chairs, so for those just beginning, this is a good resort. Sunny slopes make the snow a little softer - ideal for gentle freeriding!

Other lift passes on offer (to buy locally in resort in Euros):

If you wish to book only half day or a day pass, or perhaps a few days consecutive or non-consecutive (Peak Retreats usually only pre-book 6+ days passes), then these can be bought in resort at the lift pass office, in €'s. This may suit those who only ski a few times during the week or who only want to ski the immediate local area rather than the full area (there are usually various lift passes on offer that cover different parts of the ski area). Each resort usually has a beginner's pass too which covers a small area in which to learn, which may be all you need for a few days as a beginner (some areas are even free). Prices can be found on the tourist office website if you need a guide.

Free lifts - the Manessier draglift and the Lutins rolling carpet are open for free for everyone 7 days a week!

For ski school times and prices, please download the ski extras form from the 'Helpful links' further down the page. Please note these are just guiding prices. Please call us for the latest prices.

Please note that lesson times are subject to change right until the last minute - you will be advised. Outside French school holidays the ski school reserves the right to cancel group lessons should numbers be insufficient. For peak periods - Christmas, New Year, February half-term and Easter - we strongly recommend that you book as early as possible and in any case at least 6 weeks prior to the required dates. Morning lessons tend to get booked up first and therefore we may only be able to offer afternoon classes within 6 weeks of departure. In some resorts, English speaking instructors may not always be available, particularly at peak times.

We cannot always guarantee that prices will be cheaper than in the resort. When ski packs prices are calculated, the currency is bought at the exchange rates that apply at the time. You can be assured that once you have booked your extras, if the pound depreciates, you will not be charged more for your ski packs, enabling you to budget for your holiday in advance.

La Rosiere private lessons (not pre-bookable, book direct):

Individual tuition can only be purchased directly from the ESF ski school. Peak Retreats cannot pre-book these. Private lessons usually start from 2 years old and have no maximum age.

How to book:
You can book online with ESF La Rosiere or contact them by phone on 0033 4 79 06 81 26. It is advisable to book before you go and in good time as instructors get very busy, especially in Peak times.

Prices vary from resort to resort but are around €40-80 per 1 hour lesson for 1 or 2 people (the more people you have the cheaper it usually is so you can split the cost). Most resorts offer a choice of 1 hour, 1.5 hours or 2 hour lessons. These may be in the morning or afternoon and are usually at select times. If you only fancy just one private lesson, this is usually fine. Otherwise, you can book a course of private lessons over as many days (consecutive or non-consecutive) as you'd like. However, it is more cost-effective to book group lessons for the week (which we pre-book).


La Rosiere non-skiing childcare (not pre-bookable, book direct)

La Rosiere has acquired the Famille Plus label for its childcare facilities. 

The Baby-Club "Les Galopins" has two centres in La Rosière Centre and Les Eucherts. The full-trained and qualified staff at Les Galopins offer educational activities both indoors and outdoors, from Sunday to Friday on a half-day (with or without lunch) or full-day (lunch included) basis.
