La Rosiere Information
Recognised for its high level of family-friendliness La Rosière has been awarded the highest official ‘Famille Plus Montagne’ award. La Rosière ski resort is also linked with La Thuile in Italy
La Rosiere is located in the heart of the Haute Tarentaise and set in a forest on the Italian border. It is a friendly resort in a very attractive setting. Sunny and south facing, it offers panoramic views over the Isere valley to Les Arcs and La Plagne.
La Rosière ski resort is linked with La Thuile in Italy and is the only Savoyard resort to offer an international ski area: 160km of marked pisted runs (Espace San Bernardo).
In terms of location, the resort has a lot to offer. It is built beside the road that zigzags its way up from Bourg-St-Maurice to the Petit-St-Bernard pass to Italy. The ski resort and ski slopes are south facing, attracting a lot of sunshine and have great views of the Vallées of Les Arcs and La Plagne. It is also close to the, Vanoise National Park – the first to open in France.
La Rosière has controlled development, so buildings are constructed using traditional methods and are in keeping with local taste.
The ski resort of La Rosière was created on 23rd December 1960 with 1 ski lift, 1 ski lift attendant, 1 hotel with a restaurant/bar and 1 ski instructor! It became an international ski resort in 1985 when the new Italian link to La Thuile was opened. Since then it has been transformed into a first class ski resort without letting go of its traditions or village atmosphere, and is one of Ski Collection’s most popular ski resorts.
Every Sunday the Tourist office of La Rosière will welcome you to the ice bar especially created in the shape of the number 50, where you can enjoy hot mulled wine or a hot chocolate and find out the week’s activities and events within the ski resort.
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 have their 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.
The local tourist office of La Rosière can provide further information on all these special events.
