The French Ski Resort with Italian flair! The perfect blend of sunshine and snow, with a touch of dolce vita!
La Rosière holds the key to a French-Italian ski area with 99 miles of pistes, boasting long and gentle, sunny slopes on the French side and more challenging skiing on the north face of the mountain in the Aosta Valley.
La Rosière is perfect for all types of skier.
Families and beginners can meander around the sunny southern side of the mountain while pleasure-seekers set off on a quest to sample some Italian delicacies across the border. Perched on a mountain balcony overlooking the Tarentaise Valley, La Rosière offers wraparound views and glorious sunshine from dawn to dusk!
La Rosière is still being developed and boasts a selection of new projects that blend seamlessly with the resort’s traditional wood and stone chalets. The commune and its inhabitants strive to ensure that these new buildings adhere to the resort’s carefully-planned expansion and tie in with the spirit of the village.
Easy-living, sunshine and snow are all on the menu in La Rosière!
At the start of your day, from the snow front, savor the breathtaking 180-degree views of the Tarentaise Valley; La Rosière truly has one of the most spectacular views in the Alps. Best of all, to finish off your day, take a moment (or two) to enjoy one of the most the stunning sunsets anywhere. From dawn to dusk, La Rosière’s slopes are bathed in sunshine!
In addition to sunshine, La Rosière is also famous for snow! With the Mont Blanc and Petit-St-Bernard pass just a stone’s throw away, the Espace San Bernardo has unique weather conditions that ensure the resort receives excellent snowfall from December to April, and is considered to have some of the best snow levels in the Northern Alps.
As the only international ski area in the Northern Alps, the Espace San Bernardo has linked La Rosière with the Italian resort of La Thuile since winter 1983-1984. Grab your skis and set off on an adventure to explore new horizons and another culture! With slopes on both the north and the south faces of the mountain, excellent skiing and varied terrain are the order of the day. You might even want to brush up your Italian while on the slopes (though most Aosta Valley inhabitants speak excellent French and English)
