So what's it like?
Peaceful, sunny resort and a ski area shared with Italy
La Rosiere is a French style village with an authentic feel. Linked to the Italian resort of La Thuile you enjoy an Italian pizza for lunch and a French fondue for dinner. The resort is particularly well geared up for families with excellent resort kids clubs and ski school. There is an ice rink and bowling alley for some activities off the slopes and a good selection of low key restaurants and bars for evening entertainment.
Ski Information Beginners
Complete beginners will soon make quick progress on the green runs by the Clarines and Lievre Blanc lifts. The wide open blue pistes just above La Rosière are then perfect for finding your feet and getting to grips with the turns, especially under the guidance of the expert local ski school.
Ski Information Intermediates
This international ski area is ideal for intermediates that wish to clock up some mileage. Ski up to the Petit Saint Bérnard Pass and the area around La Belvedere where there are some great blue and red runs. Take the Nouva and San Bernardo runs, a total of 11kms, down to the village of La Thuile for a pasta lunch before returning via the Belvedere chairlift, back to France.
Ski Information Advanced
There are a total of 12 black runs in the international ski area as well as a fully patrolled off piste snowzone for experienced skiers and boarders. On the Italian side it also possible to do heliskiing (usually January to April) on the Ruitor glacier or the Miravidi for any skier who relishes a challenge. Another new developing winter sport, for advanced skiers looking for something different, is snow-kiting; skiing downhill with a small parachute attached to your back. There is a designated area and school to help you learn this exhilarating new discipline.
A relatively quiet resort, though it still has several bars for entertainment. Try Arpin's bar, le p'tit relais, Le Petit Danois or Fusion for a fun night out.
Bowling alley, cinema with films in English, indoor ice skating, snowkiting
