Ski between France and Italy

Your 'Al Dente' holiday - you don't need to be big to be great!

Despite being the most low-key resort in the Tarentaise Valley, La Rosière still has a lot to offer!

With a French-italian ski area than spans 160km, the resort boasts long and gentle, sunny slopes on the French side and more challenging skiing on the north face of the mountain, in the Aosta Valley (Italy).

La Rosière is the perfect resort for families and beginners, who delight in its south-facing slopes, and for pleasure-seekers on a quest to sample some Italian delicacies across the border.

At the start of your day, standing at the foot of the slopes, drink in the breathtaking 180-degree views of the Tarentaise Valley. After a day out on the mountain, enjoy the outstanding luminosity as the sun sets on the return slopes of La Rosière. From dawn to dusk, La Rosière’s slopes are bathed in sunshine! La Rosière is synonymous with easy-living, sunshine and snow!

With the Mont Blanc and Petit Saint bernard pass just a stone’s throw away, the Espace San Bernardo has weather conditions that ensure that the resort receives excellent snow fall from December to April and is considered to have some of the best snow levels in the Northern Alps - a perfect blend!

Skiing with a touch of the dolce vita - the only international ski area in the northern French Alps, the Espace San Bernardo has linked La Rosière with the Italian resort of La Thuile since winter 1983-1984.

Grab your skis and set off on adventure to explore new horizons and another culture!

Thanks to its cross-border position, the Espace San Bernardo ski area has slopes on both the north and the south faces of the mountain, guaranteeing excellent skiing and varied terrain. You might even want to brush up your Italian while on the slopes (though most Aosta Valley inhabitants speak excellent French and English!)
