Why La Rosière should be your next ski destination

Image Wednesday, 20, February, 2019

La Rosière, in the heart of the Tarentaise, is the perfect resort for all ski abilities. Families love its great snow record and that is has plenty of sunshine, and it’s no surprise that La Rosière is one of our favourites too! Here’s why we think it’s the ideal base for your next ski getaway.

La Rosière has its own ski area - Espace San Bernardo, with 198km of piste to enjoy. There’s great terrain for beginners, as well as a huge choice of runs for intermediates. La Rosière is also situated right on the Italian border – ski over to La Thuile to satisfy those midday pasta cravings!

The resort also recently opened up a new area for skiing – Mont-Valaisan. This includes five new red graded pistes and two new 6-seater lifts, which brings the total run count to that 198km! The new Mont-Valaisan peak raises the altitude to 2800m and has created lots of secured new free-riding opportunities!

As well as the new ski area, La Rosière also boasts a brand new ‘Village Igloo’. Visitors can enjoy a drink at the Ice Bar or even have lunch whilst taking in the experience inside the 130m² ice structure. There is also fondue served every Wednesday evening – definitely one to tick off the bucket list!

There is something for everyone with the many events and activities available throughout the season. Our clients regularly recommend going to see an ice hockey match. The local team, the Tigres Blancs, plays every Wednesday evening and the atmosphere is fantastic. Watch the Freeski Playoffs (freestyle skiing competition) and The Freeride Junior Tour (for up-and-coming youngsters)! And why not try an evening snowshoe followed by dinner in a yurt? Or an alternative and fun sledging experience on a “paret”? You can find out more about what activities the resort has to offer by having a look at our La Rosière resort page!

La Rosière now has even more choice of places to stay with brand new 4* accommodation.
