A peaceful, south-facing resort with a ski area that crosses the border into neighbouring Italy.
- Compact ski area with lots of easy blue runs back into both La Rosière and Les Eucherts.
- Lift-linked to the beautiful Italian resort of La Thuile, great for a tasty lunch stop and loads more runs to cruise down.
- A quiet, traditional French resort with pretty wooded walks that tends to be very popular with families.
The ski area links to the Italian resort of La Thuile, and is part of the Espace San Bernardo ski area, giving you over 152km of piste and the chance to enjoy an authentic Italian pizza for lunch. Feeding into La Rosière, a number of blue and green runs make this an ideal place for progressing beginners.
The charm of the resort has made it a firm favourite with families, with many returning year after year. In terms of accommodation, you’ll find a wide range of chalets and self-catering apartments, some of which are new, high-quality places to stay, with others providing a value for money option. If you’re looking for hotel accommodation, however, your choices might be a little limited in La Rosière, so booking early is recommended.
The resort centre makes a great meeting point for lunch and socialising. Several piste-side restaurants are ideal for a rendezvous with the rest of the family after a morning in ski school. The resort has a few bars, the pick of which would probably have to be Le Comptoir, which often hosts live music. The Les Eucherts side of town also has a good range of bars and restaurants for when you want a slopeside hot chocolate or tartiflette for lunch - Le Flocon is always busy.
For Winter 2018/19, the Espace San Bernardo ski area is expanding, with the opening of the Mont Valaisan sector. The new area will include five new red pistes, serviced by two brand-new chairlifts - the Moulins Express and Mont-Valaisan Express - and will take the highest point in the ski area to an incredible 2,800m.
La Rosière has also been certified as adhering to the ISO 14001, a set of internationally recognised environmental management standards.
