Being south facing, the La Rosiere ski resort, situated on the border between France and Italy, gets the best of the sunshine whilst maintaining its pistes due to its altitude of 1800m and snowfall throughout the season. La Rosiere is a beautiful, traditional mountain village made up of two parts; Les Eucherts and the main village which are linked by a floodlit walkway through the woods or by busses. The village has maintained the look of a traditional Alpine chalet style village and offers an ice-rink as well as shops, bars, restaurants, a bowling alley and plenty more to keep everyone entertained. There is a wide variety of accommodation for every type of group and budget.
There are high speed lifts from both the main village and the Eucherts area both of which, to a large extent, are right at the foot of the pistes. As one of the sunniest ski areas in the French Alps, La Rosiere has wide beginner runs, challenging blacks, tree runs, snow parks and children specific pistes. It is also home to the unpisted ‘Snowcross des Zittieux’ and links to l’Espace San Bernardo on the Italian side. With the best of both worlds you can experience both heli-skiing and Italian culinary delights less than an hour from La Rosiere.
La Rosiere is just above Bourg Saint Maurice heading in the direction of the Col du Petit Saint Bernard (This is closed in the winter with the road ending at La Rosiere). Bourg Saint Maurice is easily accessible by car and regular busses, and provides both TGV and Eurostar services from the main train station. There are also regular bus transfers and both shared and private taxis to all the main airports: Lyon, Geneva, Chambery and Grenoble.
