La Rosiere

La Rosiere Ski Resort France

La Rosiere ski resort is a relatively small ski area beautifully situated high on a sunny mountainside at 1850m elevation. Overlooking the Tarentaise valley in the Savoy region of south eastern France, La Rosiere is the valley's snowiest ski resort.  Views across the valley to Les Arcs and La Plagne give a hint as to what this region has to offer.

The Powderhounds visited La Rosiere ski resort in February 2017. More information about this ski resort is coming soon.

La Rosiere Skiing & Snowboarding

A visit to La Rosiere ski resort is particularly worthwhile for beginners, intermediates and families. The terrain is predominantly easy intermediate standard and below. Some sheltered beginner and children's areas are near the base area. 

In a combination known as the Espace San Bernardo, La Rosiere is linked by lifts and lift pass with the excellent La Thuile ski resort across the border in Italy. La Thuile has a nice range of north facing steeper skiing and snowboarding options for more advanced skiers.

La Rosiere Snow & Weather

La Rosiere is statistically the snowiest ski resort in the magnificent Tarentaise valley. The annual average snowfall is around 6.5m. La Rosiere's high elevation base generally ensures good snow cover on its sunny south facing slopes.

During the Powderhounds visit, an unusual set of weather circumstances turned La Rosiere's snow to wind scoured crud whilst over the ridge (and border) in La Thuile Italy, on a reported overnight snowfall of 20cm, we skied up to 45cm of pristine fresh snow on the deep base. We will return at some point to ski the resort in better conditions.

Where is La Rosiere, France?

La Rosiere ski resort is in the famous Tarentaise valley 55km east of Albertville and sits snug on the Italian border below the Petit Saint Bernard Pass.

La Rosiere's closest international gateway airport is Geneva in Switzerland. Flights via Dubai or Montreal and European origins can utilise Lyon Saint Exupery airport. Both airports are around 210km or 2.5hr drive away.

Geneva and Lyon airports are connected by train to La Rosiere's closest main town of Bourg Saint Maurice via Chambery. The train provides the most environmentally friendly method of transport to the area. Buses and taxis provide links between the Bourg St Maurice train station and La Rosiere, 20km to the east. For all train schedules and ticketing click below.

La Rosiere Accommodation

La Rosiere's village area is in parts more reminiscent of a North American ski resort, which when compared to many French ski resort villages is not a bad thing! Some well located 'ski in' 2 and 3 star hotels and apartments are near the main Roches Noires express chairlift. Other hotel and apartment complexes line the main road down the hill.

Lodging options in the general area are limitless. On the French side below La Rosiere, the villages and ski resorts of Sainte Foy, Bourg St Maurice, Les Arcs and La Plagne will fulfil your needs.

On the Italian side, La Thuile is a real town that provides well priced lodging close the excellent south facing advanced pistes that stream down from Les Suches.
