The resort of La Rosiere began its development into a winter tourist destination in the 1960’s and, in 1984 was linked with its Italian neighbour La Thuile to form the ski area we know today.
Made up of two autonomous villages – La Rosiere and Les Eucherts – this picturesque resort takes up an ideal mountainside position at 1850m of altitude. Over the years the locals have ensured that the architecture throughout is low-rise and chalet-styled, in keeping with the area’s traditional Savoyard aesthetic.
The whole resort is South-facing, meaning that during the Christmas period it is bathed in sun for 9 hours of the day. Despite this, La Rosiere has an extremely good snow record and the North-facing slopes towards La Thuile hold the snow right through to last lifts.
From each corner of La Rosiere you are greeted with stunning views of the magnificent Mont Pourri and the surrounding Tarentaise valley.
There is 286km of piste to enjoy and the terrain is varied. There aren’t many areas of the Alps where you can enjoy a croissant for breakfast before embarking on a short ski to Italy for a pizza for lunch and this makes for an interesting area to explore.
