A traditional, south-facing resort, La Rosière has a great mix of French and Italian skiing, and is popular with families and first-timers. The resort is divided into two main areas, La Rosière centre and Les Eucherts. They’re connected by a short bus ride and a floodlit, Alpine forest walk. The ski area links to the Italian resort of La Thuile, and is part of the Espace San Bernardo ski area giving you over 160km of skiable piste and the chance to enjoy an authentic Italian pizza for lunch. Feeding into La Rosière, a number of blue and green runs make this an ideal place for progressing beginners.
The charm of the resort has made it a firm favourite with families, with many returning year after year. In terms of accommodation, you’ll find a wide range of chalets and self-catering apartments, some of which are new and offer very high quality places to stay suitable for different needs, and others providing a value for money option. If you’re looking for hotel accommodation, however, your choices might be a little limited in La Rosière so booking early is recommended.
The resort centre makes a great meeting point for lunch and socialising. Several piste-side restaurants are also ideal for a rendezvous with the rest of the family after a morning in ski school. The resort has a few bars, the pick of which would probably have to be Le Comptoir, which often hosts live music.
The Les Eucherts side of town also has a good range of bars and restaurants for when you want a slopeside hot chocolate or tartiflette for lunch - Le Flocon is always busy.
