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 16-Apr-2014)
Excellent spring riding conditions exist across the open French resorts this week. Bright sunny weather blessed skiers on Monday 14th April, and similar weather is expected for most of this week. Clouds could move in as we move into the Easter weekend.
The deepest base depth of our featured French resorts is reported at Cauterets (310/410cm) in the Pyrenees. The skiing is very good at Cauterets and at Bareges/La Mongie (90/300cm) due to the excellent snowfall the Pyrenees has received this season.
St Gervais and Chamrousse both closed for the season over the weekend, joining Font Romeu, Foux d’Allos, Notre Dame de Bellecombe and Villard de Lans.
European Weather Outlook
The weather this week across the majority of European resorts is for mostly sunny weather before clouds build on Easter Sunday. Any snow that does fall next week will be on the higher slopes as the freezing level will be around 2,500m.
Austria is the exception though as cloudy skies are expected to dominate this week. The good news is that the freezing level could dip down to below 1,500m this week so fresh snow could fall. Next week will see it climb back above 2,500m and the precipitation will be mostly wet.
