La Rosière is a cross-border ski resort with Italy. The San Bernardo ski area allows skiers to discover the Italian slopes and to live a true unique skiing experience in the Northern Alps. Offering a privileged view of Mont-Blanc, the resort located near the Col du Petit-St-Bernard has seen great names in history cross its lands, such as Hannibal in 218 BC. In 1920, young skiers decided to create the Union Sportive de Montvalezan in a mountain village and in 1960, the first ski competitions were organized. Entirely managed by the commune, the La Rosière ski resort established a link with Italy in 1985 to offer tourists "the pleasure of skiing without borders". This family ski resort will appeal to all levels of skiers. From the first tracks to freeride skiing, from the summits to the forest slopes, La Rosière has the "Famille Plus" label which perfectly meets the expectations of families and children. The winter season is punctuated by cultural and sporting events, but also by typical animations of the valley. From Freeride Week to the Roc Noir night race, the resort of La Rosière has many surprises in store for you!
Finally, the resort is strongly committed to sustainable development through actions to reduce our ecological footprint and contribute to the respect of the environment. From free shuttles to waste collection days, La Rosière protects its fauna and flora and aims to raise awareness among as many people as possible.
An air of Dolce Vita will invade you this winter! The Espace San Bernardo is an incredible ski area that offers nearly 80 varied runs: long runs in La Rosière and more sportive runs on the La Thuile side.
For beginners, free ski lifts are accessible from the bottom of the slopes to learn at your own pace and discover the joys of skiing. For toddlers, a kindergarten, beginners' areas and a treadmill are available as well as a snowshoe trail, Le Petit Trappeur, from 6 years old. And for the more daring, discover the Poletta snowpark to send your best tricks and compete on the funcross of the Petit Saint-Bernard with a fun 1000-metre long track.
Thanks to the extension of the ski area, the Mont Valaisan sector offers freeride enthusiasts an incredible playground. Two new detachable chairlifts take you up to 1800 meters of altitude with a breathtaking view of the Tarentaise valley. This very "sporty" part of the domain will seduce the most committed skiers.
La Rosière has created 3 itineraries for ski touring to discover the extent of the domain and to evolve in a preserved and wild environment. And for cross-country skiing enthusiasts, 3 trails of different levels are spread over the 6 km of the course with totally free access.
Take a breath of fresh air and venture onto the bridge of the Panoramic Experience. Equipped with a photopoint, it allows you to immortalize this special moment with the Mont-Blanc with a few dozen meters of empty space under your feet! Finally, from the Col du Petit-St-Bernard, it is possible to practice heliskiing thanks to a helicopter drop on the slopes of the Ruitor, Mont Ouille...
