Review of La Rosiere

La Rosiere
Reviewed 27 March 2017

There are attractive aspects to this resort but I would not recommend it for anyone other then beginners and then it is limited. The links with the Italian side are poor, linked by a small red run, which is narrow and when busy not easy. After that you have to do an 8 minute long drag lift that lots of people were falling off. The skiing on the Italian side is good if you can get there! This link is also closed in high winds. Not my favourite resort ,

It snowed for our first two days so we had loads of it. They didn't piste bash quickly, leaving everyone struggling to turn on the slopes which were soon full of large moguls as the snow was pushed into heaps. Lifts are good (mainly chairs seating 3-6 people. No queues at all even though the resort was full. Skiing over to La Thuile in Italy takes a long time so you need to set off early to get a lot of runs there. The link is two very long flat drags - not good of the weather is very cold etc. Slopes in Italy are better than in la Rosiere itself. All are wide and well groomed. You are advised to leave Italy by 3pm , and especially in poor weather, this is advisable. The long undulating blue back over takes ages and a lot of courage to go really fast in order to get up the hills. The weather can be very different in the two resorts - one day when it was good and no wind in la Rosiere , over in la Thuile the wind was vicious and bitingly cold. Always carry all equipment in case it changes!

We booked to go skiing in La Rosiere through Ski Beats and we stayed at a catered chalet called Papillion 3. The chalet was really cute! The host (Nush) and her food was excellent we ate like kings the entire time... loved it!

The Skiing was also really good, three of us were beginners and there were so many options of slopes for us. The other member of our party was an advanced skier and he also had plenty of slopes and even went over to La Thuile in Italy for the day. We had Ski lessons from ESF through a lady named Alex and she was excellent.

Was an absolutely stunning holiday would definitely go back!

Southerly slopes which catch the sun (and can melt the snow) with an unreliable link to La Thuile, Italy. The link can close in high winds, which is a shame as the skiing is more varied in La Thuile. The link is via a 1.5 mile long drag lift - so the French don't make it easy for you to go over to Italy for lunch!
Good ski school with Evolution 2 available, where the numbers per class is much lower than with ESF.
