La Rosière is a quiet, traditional village, located at an altitude of 1850 meters within the beautiful and impressive mountain region of Le Massif La Tarentaise, on the border with Italy. The village is located in a great area and has beautiful views over the valley. In the village there are several shops, restaurants and bars to relax in.
The majority of the slopes are situated on the southern slope of Haute-Tarentaise allowing the possibility of spending the whole day skiing in the sun. For children there are special kids slopes and toboggan runs. In addition, various activities such as heli-skiing and dog sledding are available here. Are you looking for some quieter activities? Around La Rosière you can find over 11 km of marked hiking trails through the forests, the village and along the slopes.
Espace San Bernardo is located on the border between Italy and France, at an altitude of 1200 meters located on the opposite side of the valley of Les Arcs. The area consists of the French and the Italian La Rosiere and La Thuile. Together, these places have over almost 150 kilometers of slopes and beautiful views. Chair lifts will take you to the slopes above the village of La Rosière and from here you can also explore the area of La Thuile.
Most slopes face south and because of the high altitude the ski area is sunny and snowy. There is a wide choice of slopes suitable for all levels and a big snowboard park. For cross country skiers there are 10 kilometers of trails with a beautiful view of the valley. There are many wide slopes as well which is great for beginners and families with children. If you want some more excitement La Rosiere is definitely recommended, because this is one of the few French destinations, where you can go heliskiing.
In short, Espace San Bernardo has everything for a great ski holiday with a combination of French and Italian slopes and great terrain for all abilities!
