French Italian Blend Karen Anderson, Senior Ski Specialist

"La Rosière is a great little resort sitting right on the French / Italian border. The San Bernardo ski area has plenty to explore: ski over to the neighbouring resort of La Thuile in Italy for a pizza and then back for a refreshing beer on the huge sun terrace at Le Comptoir!"

La Rosière Ski Holidays

In the heart of the Haute Tarentaise, La Rosière has an enviable position on the French-Italian border on the Petit St Bernard pass and is linked with the Italian resort of La Thuile.

Offering over 150km of pistes, south-facing La Rosière has a good snow record and a large selection of sunny slopes for all abilities of skiers.

The resort has two village bases, La Rosière Centre and Les Eucherts, which are approximately a 15 minute walk from one another. The old village, La Rosière Centre, is built in an attractive traditional chalet-style and offers a selection of bars, shops and restaurants. The more recently-built Les Eucherts area has been purpose-built in a traditional style and also offers a selection of amenities as well as the resort's bowling centre and ice rink. Ski lifts depart from both La Rosière Centre and Les Eucherts and there are ski school meeting points at both bases.

Skiing in La Rosière

La Rosière is a great beginner resort with dedicated slopes easily accessible at Les Eucherts and the resort centre. La Rosière's lower slopes are mainly cruisy blues and greens ideal for early intermediates.

The upper slopes below Le Roc Noir and Col de la Traversette offer steeper, interesting reds and La Thuile has some great intermediate skiing.

Expert skiers and boarders can enjoy some guided off piste terrain, or even heli-skiing just over the Italian border. 

For budding freestylers, there is a small but well equipped snowpark as La Rosière is home to some promising young talent.
