La Rosiere, Skiing & Snow...

La Rosiere shares the ski and snowboard slopes with its Italian neighbour La Thuile. Between them they form the Espace San Bernardo ski domain that covers 150 kilometers of marked piste plus some pretty descent back country. There is terrain suitable for all level of rider here and the vast majority of pisted runs are graded easy to intermediate. One advantage of being based in La Rosiere – if you have a car or have a friend with a car – is that you’re only fifteen minutes away from Villaroger (Les Arcs) and Sainte-Foy. And Val d’Isere and Tignes are between twenty and thirty minutes away. It’s an ideal location for doing some daily resort hopping. This is something that you may want to do particularly when the weather closes in as the slopes of Mont Valaisan are fairly exposed.

Beginner

ski rating

With an excellent nursery area on which to get started, a doting instructor and a lungful of fresh alpine air beginners will be zipping about in no time. Progressing beginners will also develop confidence quickly on the many wide open blue pistes.

Intermediate

ski rating

Intermediates will love this space, and that’s what you get here – lots of wide open spaces. Espace San Bernardo is full of confidence giving ego massaging slopes. Most of the longer runs are found on the Italian side. Try out the thigh burning San Bernardo and follow reds all the way down to La Thuile. In the unlikely event that you get fed up there is also the nearby Tarantaise super resorts of Paradiski and Espace Killy.

Advanced

ski rating

For the better rider there are thirteen black runs in total plus some very nice off-piste especially after a fresh fall of snow. For those that can afford it and have little regard for the planet there’s also a heli-skiing operation here. The alternatives are skins, snowshoes and crampons.

Freestyle, Skier and BoarderCross

ski rating

Freestyle fans have been given their very own park times 3. The Snowzones as they’re known incorporate cross tracks, rails, kickers, table-tops and almost every type of bump for getting you airborne. Happy landings!
