La Rosiere enjoys a high, sunny location in the Tarentaise Valley with great views of Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn and Monte Rosa. The resort has been built in a traditional chalet style along the road which leads from Bourg St. Maurice to the Petit-St-Bernard pass.
The Espace San Bernardo ski area includes La Thuile in Italy, giving you the chance to pop over the border for a real Italian pizza for lunch! La Rosière is a small, attractive, purpose-built resort in the Savoie region. It’s quiet and friendly, and one of the main attractions is the connection with La Thuile in Italy.
This resort appeals to intermediates who enjoy cruising over the border for an authentic pizza, but more importantly draws those wishing to take advantage of the heliskiing opportunities that the connection with Italy brings. The views of Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn and Monte Rosa are fantastic.
The Espace Bernado has 150km of runs for beginners and intermediates to explore - experts may tire of the slopes after a couple of days. This could be solved with a heli-skiing/boarding trip or a visit to the nearby slopes of Val D’Isère, Tignes or Ste. Foy. The snow is good in La Rosière and even better over in La Thuile, and most of the pistes are in glorious sunshine, which is fairly rare in France.
Activities in La Rosière include driving packs of dogs, helicopter flights, paragliding or snowmobiling. There is a cinema and a fitness centre. On Monday evenings you can join the ESF in a torchlight descent. Heliskiing or boarding is popular over in La Thuile.
Most of the activities are geared towards children and so it is a great place for young families. La Rosière is perhaps best suited to beginner or intermediate skiers or snowboarders who are looking for a peaceful chalet holiday.
