Fun Resort, Excellent Croissants!

Brooke Worrall
21/03/2020
We popped over a couple of times from the La Thuile side. First visit, La Rosiere had been closed a day or two due to blizzard conditions (meanwhile La Thuile didn’t cop much at all), so we had uncrowded mid-week powder most of the day!

Second visit was wind-scoured to buggery, but there were fun powder “rivers” off-piste to rip down. Very much enjoyed my days there!

Predictably stunning views, and the croissant/hot choccie combo was outstanding. Also good mulled vino.

Will be back.

La Rosiere is a medium size resort that is linked up with La Thuile in Italy. If it snows, La Rosiere is tracked up pretty fast but La Thuile stays fresh and untracked (for some reason the locals there aren't into the off-piste, so good news for the powder seeker). The part that links  both resorts is flat and windy so be aware. 

La Rosiere is okay for nightlife.

La Rosiere is Still a Good Family Resort ......... When the Sun is Out!

31/05/2018
Our second visit to La Rosiere was during a week in the Tarentaise sampling all the ski resorts. The visit re emphasised some of the good and bad points of the ski area, but snow quantity and quality was exceptional.

Weather on the actual we skied the skied the mountain was near zero visibility and snowing. The resort is tough to ski in poor viz, but the snow quality was excellent which made it easier. There is nowhere to hide for most beginner and intermediate skiers when the weather is foul.

When the sun came out on other days, the mountain looked resplendent from our accommodation at nearby Sainte Foy ski resort.

The terrain at La Rosiere is still too gentle to hold much interest for upper intermediates and higher. It is close to La Thuile though and skiing to Italy is fun any day of the week!

The village is quite nice when compared to others nearby (with the notable exception of Sainte Foy). Would recommend La Rosiere for family groups just starting to explore ski resorts beyond the learn to ski areas.

FamilySkiing at La Rosiere

La Rosiere ski resort is a family friendly resort that will delight lower intermediate and beginner skiers and boarders. The tidy modern village reminded the Powderhounds of a North American style resort base, albeit one that is not pedestrian friendly.  The village has a sunny disposition and glorious views across the valley to Les Arcs.  La Rosiere's terrain is mostly low angle beginner and intermediate. It is very well set up for children. 

Once away from the village, shelter and toilet facilities are few and far between. Toilets at the top of Le Roc Noir were a disgrace, and other toilets at Fort were closed.

La Rosiere's snow quality during the Powderhounds visit was very poor when compared to the adjacent La Thuile in Italy. La Rosiere's slopes are predominantly south facing so receive a serious dose of sun. Skiing across the border from Italy to France the snow was noticeably sun and wind affected, plocky and very thin down low at La Rosiere.  The piste was extremely poorly groomed - another sign of difficult snow conditions the preceding day and night.  The contrast with La Thuile's comparatively dry, crisp snow was stark. 

On a powder day, La Thuile clearly has the better terrain and snow quality, so if in La Rosiere, head to Italy and the Piccolo San Bernardo chair pronto.
