La Rosière is a traditional south facing resort which offers skiing in both France and Italy and is popular with families and first-timers. The resort is divided into two main areas, La Rosière centre and Les Eucherts. They’re connected by a short bus ride and a floodlit, Alpine forest walk.

The ski area links to the Italian resort of La Thuile, and is part of the Espace San Bernardo ski area giving you over 160km of skiable piste and the chance to enjoy an authentic Italian pizza for lunch, especially for intermediate skiers. Feeding into La Rosière, a number of blue and green runs make this an ideal place for progressing beginners, especially with a number of green runs by the Clarine and Lievre Blanc lifts and blue runs beyond.There are also 12 black runs which helps keep any experts happy as well as the off piste areas here and in La Thuile.For a small extra charge the La Rosiere ski pass also covers a day in Tignes, Val d'Isere,La Plagne and Les Arcs, about 45 mins away by shuttle.

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 and offer very high quality places to stay suitable for different needs, and 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.Don't forget you also have a choice of getting here via flying, driving or Eurostar/TGV which stops in Bourg St Maurice, some 50 mins away from La Rosiere.

The resort centre makes a great meeting point for lunch and socialising. Several piste-side restaurants are also 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 Moo Bar, Bar le Roz and the Petit Danois.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 and the bowling bar is always good fun for a night out.
