La Rosiere is a purpose built resort sitting at 1850m. The resorts consists of mostly chalets and apartments built in traditional Alpine style dotted discreetly throughout the woods.

La Rosiere is comprised of over 160km of pistes. The resort offers an extensive array of greens and blues tailored for beginners and is linked to the neighbouring Italian resort of La Thuille which opens up a range of fantastic intermediate skiing with a wide variety of blues and reds, together these two resorts make up the Espace San Bernado.

La Rosiere prides itself on being one of the most child-friendly resort and has been awarded the ‘Famille Plus Montagne’ by the French national tourist board. The resort is increasingly popular with families due to its child friendly accommodation and fantastic beginner skiing.

There are two distinct villages to La Rosiere; the resort centre and an newer offshoot Les Eucherts. Both of these have a range of amenities and ski lifts. Getting between the two villages is approximately 15 minutes’ on foot or alternatively there is a free shuttle.

Like many Alpine resorts, La Rosiere is pushing itself and constantly updating. New for the 18/19 season is the Mont Valasian area. This will expand the resort to the new height of 2800m. The new area will have two new chairlifts and open up an additional five pistes.

Unlike some slightly larger ski resorts, La Rosiere does not have a big party scene. However there is still a selection of bars for après and quite a few that stay open until the early hours. Here is a selection of the most popular:

Bar La Roz is a small but lively venue. You will regularly find people dancing on the tables and taking advantage of the cheaper drinks.

For those wanting to unwind in a more relaxed way over a peaceful glass of wine or champagne next to a cosy fire then Chez Le Gaulois is the place. This chilled out wine bar offers an extensive wine list in a calm environment. Also perfect for a pre or post dinner drink.

Le Pub is La Rosiere’s closest venue to a nightclub. Staying open until 4am this spot is a great place to have a boogie and a drink or even enjoy some darts.

Le 1850 is located directly opposite the Tourist Office in the resort centre. This venue features a wine and tapas menu, ideal for those post-slopes munchies.
They often have live music and aim to show many of the major sports matches on one of their TVs.

Moobar combines a disco and a nightclub in the centre of Les Eucherts. Despite being a nightclub the venue promotes a laid back atmosphere until 4am.

For sports fans wanting to watch the latest match Le Comptoir is the place to head to. Located in the heart of the resort centre, this venue is a traditional British pub offering simple food and reasonably priced drinks. When there isn’t any sport on then there will be live music or resident DJs. 
If you have a non-skier in the group or if you don’t plan on skiing all day then you might want to consider some different activities that are available in the resort.
As well as a selection of shops, bars and restaurants, La Rosiere has a whole host of non-skiing activities.

La Rosiere has a large indoor ice rink available for public use as well as hosting ice hockey matches every Wednesday. Visitors can either watch the matches or they can try out a bit of skating themselves. The rink is located in Les Eucherts and is open from 15:00- 19:30 throughout the winter. There are also sessions to take part in for children between 4 and 9 years old. These include skating lessons, ice hockey tasters as well as free skating.

Bowling alley is a great evening activity for all ages not just non skiers. There are special slides to assist children so the whole family can come and have a go. The alley also hosts pinball machines and table football.

The cinema is located in the Terrasses shopping centre in the town centre. There are two screens showing all the latest blockbuster hits. Look out for the films marked ‘VOST’ as this means that the film will be shown in English. To pick up a film schedule head to the tourist office.

Evolution 2 offer a variety of sledging activities. These include the paret which is an old traditional wooden sledge, these are available for varying lengths of time down from the Roches Noires lift. It is open to those aged 10 or over. This is available after the lifts have shut usually around 4:30pm. They also offer sledging by night for those aged 16 or over. 

There is a specialised sledging area located by the main car park at the bottom of the slopes. This is open every day from 9am to 10pm depending on snow cover. This is a great option for children during the day as it is in a safe zone away from skiers.

Snowshoeing guided walks are a popular activity through the forests of La Rosiere. The instructors will inform you about the heritage and the wildlife. These are available through a number of companies such as ESF and Evolution 2.

If you want to go one step further then you can snowshoe up to an igloo and partake in building it on the Marie and David Crocket course. If you fancy an igloo experience but maybe building it isn’t for you then you can go for a fondue meal inside one instead. Don’t forget to wrap up warm, dinner in an igloo can be a frosty experience!

Range of Children’s activities put on by the Tourist Office for children such as snowman building, Panda walks and snow challenges

There is also a brand new swimming pool and wellness centre, the Altispa. As well as offering panoramic views there are luxury areas such as a salt room, sauna and 3 jacuzzis. This offers the ultimate relaxing and pampering session with massages available to book.

In addition to these activities there are even more to sample. These include paragliding, dog sledding, snake gliss and ice driving.

La Rosiere is simply one of the most family-friendly resorts in the Alps. Along with the gentle beginner slopes, there is a decent range of non-ski activities to choose from if the weather turns against you, or if the children just want a change of activity.

The resort’s ice skating rink sits in the Les Eucherts part of town. Double-blade skating boots are available for small children, so the rink is very family-friendly. Lighting effects and a good sound system mean the rink’s regular disco evenings are good fun and aside from skating, visitors can enjoy ice hockey lessons with coaching and all the gear supplied. http://winter.larosiere.net/winter-ice-rink.html

There is a bowling alley in the Place des Eucherts offering a good number of lanes along with pool tables, sports coverage and live music.

Snow shoeing is fun and adventurous for all ages, and is perhaps the perfect way to explore the mountain off skis. The trails head off into pine forest and courses of different gradients are available for show shoers young and old. If you’re lucky, you can spot a number of wild animals in the terrain outside the resort and the fresh air and valley views are just amazing.

The resort’s cinema, Le Ruitor Cinema, offers two screens with regular showings of recent films in both French and English. You can pick up a leaflet detailing the latest information on film screenings at the tourist office. http://winter.larosiere.net/winter-cinema.html
