La Rosière 1850 Resort Info

La Rosière skiing

La Rosière is lift linked with the italian resort of La Thuileand has a great snow record. The two resorts, although unlikely stablemates, form a substantial ski area with plenty of long wide runs to please intermediates. La Rosière also provides a useful gateway to some exciting heli-skiing over in Italy, enabling locals and ski holiday makers in France (where heli-skiing is banned) to heli-ski in Italy to their hearts' content (bookable through the Evolution 2 ski school), before returning to France's Tarentaise Valley. The combined area has 33 lifts and 135km of pistes.

The main draw back for those wanting to ski the Italian side is that the lift link is a long pomma lift and not suitable for beginners, young children or snowboarders not proficient in riding long pommas.

La Rosière ski resort

La Rosière, although purpose built, is a gem of quintisential alpine charm. There isn't a great deal to do off snow, although visitors are happy enough whiling away the evenings in the relaxed bars and restaurants (the Petit Danoise is popular and offers sky tv sports coverage plus internet access)  The locals are friendly and the prices are cheaper than most other tarentaise resorts.

Snow Overview - France  (snow news updated 01-Mar-2017)

Monday 27th of February was the calm before the storm in France, which is awaiting the arrival of a storm tonight. There are some interesting conditions in Le Corbier (45/115cm) where resort runs were looking more like what you would expect to find in the Pyrenees in April – spring snow with brown patches. The snow is much better at the top, but it nonetheless reflects the frankly bizarre season we are having in the Alps this year. Resort runs are also suffering in Les Orres (60/120cm) where slopes are surrounded by mud and grass. Still, the snow looks soft and grippy so it’s not as bad as it could be. There are similar conditions in Orcieres (15/90cm) and Pra Loup (25/145cm). The coming snowstorm, which starts tonight, should address some of these issues with loads of new snow forecast. It will start snowing this evening, with Chamonix (20/215cm) getting around 20 cm tonight with heavy snow continuing into tomorrow. Other hot spots include Les Deux Alpes (40/160cm) and Alpe d’Huez (90/160cm) with La Grave (40/190cm) also on track for a rejuvenating snowstorm.

European Weather Outlook

It is set to be a complicated week for The Alps. Much needed heavy snowfalls will start late on Monday (27th) night and remain all day Tuesday, tapering off by early Wednesday morning. The heaviest snowfalls will be in France and Italy, but no matter where you are skiing in The Alps there will be fresh snow. Strong winds at altitude are forecast, so some ski areas may experience limited lift operations at times. It will be an excellent but challenging week of skiing ahead for the Alps in what can only be described as varied and complex season so far. This weekend may see another round of heavy snowfalls, mostly on the southern and eastern sides of the Alps. Check back Thursday for a more comprehensive overview of upcoming conditions. Elsewhere, snow is expected in the Pyrenees on Thursday, but not as heavy as what we will see in The Alps. Tuesday will see light to moderate snowfalls - Not enough to call a powder day but certainly enough to make on-piste conditions excellent. Further north in Scandinavia, another typical weather week lies ahead. Light snow falls and fairly dull overcast skies will be the dominate feature. Temperatures will remain slightly below freezing creating most soft snow conditions.
