La Rosière is a small but rapidly growing ski resort in the Haute Tarentaise valley. Originally started by the villagers themselves in 1961, La Rosière retains much of it’s friendly village feel. The setting is unparalled with incredible, panoramic views from all over the village. The village is split into two – La Rosière centre and Les Eucherts – both areas have bars, restaurants and shops as well as a ‘Front de Neige’ for ski school meeting points and access to the ski area. The two parts of town are linked by a short path through the forest – known locally as ‘Narnia’ thanks to it’s snow laden trees and pretty lampposts – as well as a regular free shuttle bus, which runs until late.
The Espace San Bernardo ski area opened two brand new chairlifts in December 2018! The new Montvalaisan ski area has brought six brand new red runs to an area that already boasts 160km of piste skiing. The area is linked with that of La Thuile in Italy so you can enjoy a change of pace in the Italian alps (as well as cheaper lunches and the infamous Bombardinos). There is a nice mix of easy blues and inviting reds as well as the occasional testing black run and plenty of off-piste to find.
The ESF La Rosière offers a large range of lessons to adapt to everyone from beginner to heliskier. Freja has been working at the ski school for the last 4 years and will be more than happy to advise you should you like any help.
Skiset Olympic Sport offers Chalet l’Aiglon’s customers a 5% discount on their equipment and you’ll also be able to leave your skis at his piste-front shop overnight so you won’t have to bring them back to the chalet.
