Ski Holidays in La Rosiere
The traditional village of La Rosière is located in the heart of the Haute Tarentaise at 1850m, perched high on a sunny plateau above Bourg St Maurice, with a reputation as a friendly, family resort.
La Rosière ski resort is linked to the Italian resort of La Thuile to form the expansive Espace San Bernardo ski area. It is located at 1850m in the middle of Haute Tarentaise and along with the neighbouring Italian resort La Thuile, it forms the huge Espace San Bernardo ski area.
Perched on the sunny flank of the upper Tarentaise Valley above Bourg St Maurice, it’s nicknamed ‘the balcony of the Tarentaise’ due to its gorgeous geographical setting. A traditional, family-friendly ski village, it sits across the valley from Paradiski hotspots Les Arcs and Villaroger, but it's quieter, snow-sure slopes are ideal for families. Children and novices can find their ski legs on its roomy nursery slopes, there are plenty of blue and red runs for intermediates and a smattering of more challenging black runs for advanced skiers – not to mention thrilling adventures like heli-skiing across the border in Italy!
Situated close to the Petit St Bernard pass, La Rosiere is usually the highest point accessible by road when this iconic border crossing closes in winter due to the heavy snowfall it experiences thanks to its position next to Mont Blanc.
With a good choice of comfortable family-oriented accommodation, some of which is ski-to-door, pet friendly and includes spa and pool facilities, plenty of activities for all the family and a selection of friendly restaurants and bars, La Rosiere is the perfect ski resort for any family that wants to chill out, take advantage of quality slopes that are much less crowded than some of the more well-known neighbouring resorts, and socialise in a serene atmosphere amidst stunning Alpine scenery.
