1. La Rosiere has one of the best snowfall records in Europe. The town centre is at 1850 mts so you are very high before you even get your skis on. The new Montvalezan lift takes you up to almost 3,000 mts. That makes the resort pretty snow-sure!
  2. La Rosiere benefits from its close proximity to Mont Blanc and its very own micro-climate creating huge dumps of snow!
  3. The resort is half in France and half in Italy, offering two fabulous cultures to enjoy during your ski time. Make sure you get a Bombardino con panna!…Lush.
  4. There are two new lifts opening this year which have further enhanced a considerable investment over the last 15 years which has seen a significant lift improvement scheme, bringing the resort bang up to date with a range of quick modern lifts.
  5. It’s a fairly big resort these days with over 200 kms of pistes. La Rosiere has made a name for itself as a family resort, big wide blue runs bringing you home. If you are an intermediate skier, get yourself over to the Italian side, there’s lots to keep you interested for a week. You will rarely find a lift queue and at the peak weeks, La Rosiere has a very agreeable number of beds per piste ratio so it’s never overcrowded.
  6. For strong skiers, La Rosiere comes into its own on powder days with a huge area of patrolled safe areas to explore.
  7. It’s south facing and has the most fabulous views each and every day. I lived there for ten years, it’s probably one of the most panoramic resorts in Europe.
  8. Lot’s to do in town, a bowling alley, an ice rink, a spa and a choice of restaurants and bars for everyone. There’s even a night club!
  9. Prices are still sensible in la Rosiere. Drinks, meals and lift passes will not break the bank.
  10. The area is stacked in history. Hannibal and his Elephants crossed the Alps here, we even have a fortress on the top of our mountain. The Tour de France whizzed through this summer and of course, it’s the home of the St. Bernard dog.
