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 24-Apr-2014)

This is the last week of winter operations for a number of resorts across France, including some of the larger ski areas. Meribel (10/65cm) and Courchevel (46/122cm) in the Three Valleys ski area are both scheduled to close for skiing on Friday 25th April, along with Les Saisies (26/102cm). The Paradiski area, which includes Les Arcs (26/160cm) and La Plagne (0/215cm), closes for the season on Saturday 26th April, as does Montgenevre (50/70cm). Isola 2000 (55/265cm), Risoul (20/60cm), Vars (20/60cm) and Cauterets (150/250cm) should all then close on Sunday 27th. The state of skiing at the open resorts is good at the moment, with the best snow conditions high up. The Grands Montets ski area at Argentiere (65/205cm) in the Chamonix area reported 10cm of new snow in time for the lifts opening Thursday 24th April at 3,275m. Fresh snow could fall at all of the open ski resorts over the weekend, with heavy clouds forecast and a drop in freezing level to below 2,000m

European Weather Outlook

Cloudy skies will dominate over the weekend and next week in Europe. For skiers this is good news though as fresh snow is forecast. The greatest snowfall is predicted to hit resorts in Switzerland and Italy, with well over half a metre expected at the likes of Verbier, Zermatt, Saas Fee, Cervinia and Gressoney-la-Trinite. While less snow is expected to hit Austria and France, there should still be enough to provide some excellent late season skiing conditions.
