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 20-Apr-2015)

A number of French resorts closed for the season at the end of last week or over the weekend including Flaine, Isola 2000, La Toussuire, Le Corbier, Les Carroz, Les Orres, Megeve, Orcieres, Samoens, Serre Chevalier, Val Cenis, Valmorel and Vars. These add to the resorts that had already closed. There are still 30 of the 57 resorts we feature in France open for skiing though, so there is plenty or terrain available. As you might imagine for this late in the season, the best conditions can be found on the higher slopes, such as at Argentiere/Chamonix (0/175cm), Val Thorens (100/220cm), the Espace Killy (55/160cm), La Plagne (5/180cm), Les Arcs (35/190cm) and Les Deux Alpes (15/210cm). Many of these resort received a light dusting of snow on the highest slopes over the weekend whist lower slopes in France received some wet weather. The weather on Monday 20th April was much better though with bright sunny skies providing perfect spring skiing conditions, and a chance to work on your goggle tan marks. This is the final week for most of the resorts that are open so if you want to ski in France this could be your last chance this season. If you cannot get out there this week there are a number of resorts planning to remain open into May including Argentiere, Chamonix, Tignes, Val d’Isere and Val Thorens.

European Weather Outlook

A mostly sunny and settled week is forecast for the Alps, with the freezing level sitting on or above 3,000m. Some more unsettled weather is forecast for the end of the week, with some heavy precipitation likely. It remains to be seen how low the freezing level will drop so keep an eye on the latest forecasts if you’re heading out this weekend – you could be in for a good late season dump. A similar forecast is expected for the Pyrenees this week, however the precipitation predicted for later in the week is set to fall almost exclusively as rain at all levels. Some light snow is forecast for Bulgaria on Wednesday, but apart from this expect sunny skies and pleasant temperatures of around +2 to +4C at mid-mountain level. Lovely settled spring weather is forecast for much of Scandinavia, providing some great late-season riding conditions. Sweden can expect some more clouds from Thursday onwards, sadly bringing the chance of some light rain to the Swedish hills. Expect a week of mild weather in Scotland, with some good sunny breaks and the chance of a few light rain showers dominating the week’s weather. A much colder change is expected on Saturday and into next week, with the potential for some heavy late-season snowfall.
