Ski Holidays In La Rosiere
La Rosiere is a pedestrianised resort in the heart of the Tarentaise valleys and at the foot of the Italian face of Mont Blanc. Sat at 1850m, it benefits from southerly exposures and has an incredible record of snow throughout the season. Don't forget your sunnies!
Sitting at the border of both France and Italy, gives you the opportunity to ski in two countries on one ski holiday which is always a great experience.
If you're a non-skier, there's plenty for you to do in La Rosiere whether that's relaxing in one of the many spas or getting your adrenaline fill on the luge, there's something for everyone!
Skiing In La Rosiere
The ski area that La Rosiere sits in is called Espace San Bernado and gives you access to 150km of pistes.
La Rosiere has something for everyone, from beginners through to experts. With plenty of green pistes and designated beginner ski lifts/carpet, there's the opportunity for those on their first ski holiday to get a real feel for skiing. Plenty of wide, cruisey, sunny blues are yours to practice your skills or as a cooldown if you've tackled the black piste "Etagne" with a 74% angle! If that hasn't satisfied your adrenaline thirst, head over to the Italian side and look for la Francois Berthod which often is used for ski and telemark world cups!
There are a total of 38 lifts, including 1 gondola. There's 78 pisted runs in La Rosiere including 8 green runs, 23 blue runs, 35 red runs and 12 black runs. If you're looking to get some tricks in, head to the snowpark, boardercross or snowcross. Don't forget the off-piste here!
Even with a good snow record (often in the top 5 resorts for snowfall in the Alps), there are over 400 snow cannons to help keep that snow nice and fresh!

Check out Village Igloo for some on-mountain drinks, often with a live DJ blasting out some tunes whilst you relax in the sun. We also love Via Ferrata whether you're looking for some apres or something to nibble on.
