La Rosiere is a traditional Tarentaise village with a unique cross border feel, linked to La Thuile in Italy.
The Espace San Bernardo ski area, spanning the French Italian border offers 150km of runs, with a great mix of sunny south facing slopes on the French side and snowsure north facing pistes in Italy. There are a great range of slopes for intermediates, while more advanced skiers have the option of heli-skiing in Italy. Expansion plans are opening up a greater amount of pistes which will likely see the resort grow in popularity.
The resort is very different from its famous neighbours such as Val d'Isere-Tignes and Les Arcs - much smaller, quieter and sunnier, built in traditional Savoyarde architecture style, comprising chalet style high up on the road from Bourg-St-Maurice to the Petit St Bernard pass to Italy. In winter the road ends at a car park at the top of La Rosiere, just below the main lifts.This traditional village charm, as well as the resort's great range of child friendly facilities have led it to be awarded the 'Famille Plus Montagne' certification by the French tourist board.
