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 26-Apr-2015)

Mostly sunny skies have been enjoyed across France this week, with warm temperatures leading to spring skiing conditions across the mountain. A significant change in the weather is expected on Saturday however, as wet weather spreads in from the west. This will initially fall as heavy rain to around 2,500m, but will turn increasingly to snow at lower levels on Monday as the freezing level drops to 1,500m. As a result some great powder is possible up high to start the new week. Therefore, for the best conditions this weekend, head to the highest resorts where snow will be falling, such as Val Thorens (100/220cm), Tignes (45/152cm) and Val d’Isere (45/152cm). The slopes of the Grands Montets above Argentiere (0/175cm) should also offer some good skiing over the weekend. Most resorts are set to end their winter ski season on Sunday 26th April, so this weekend provides the last opportunity for lift-served turns. These include Alpe d’Huez, Avoriaz, Bonneval-sur-Arc, Cauterets, Chamrousse, Chatel, Courchevel, La Clusaz, La Grave, La Plagne, La Rosiere, La Tania, Le Grand Bornand, Les Arcs, Les Contamines, Les Deux Alpes, Les Menuires, Les Saises, Meribel and Montgenevre. The Three Valleys and Espace Killy links also close, although skiing is still set to be available at Tignes, Val d’Isere and Val Thorens individually.

European Weather Outlook

Following a prolonged spell of warm and sunny weather, the weather is set to change massively over the weekend in the Alps. Heavy rain is expected to move in during the course of Saturday, with snow only falling above 2,500m. A second weather front moving through on Sunday night is also set to bring heavy rain, but the temperature is set to drop rapidly through the night and by Monday morning the snow level could be as low as 1,500m. High regions could see in excess of 50cm of fresh snow by Monday, and lower levels around 20cm on Monday alone once the weather cools. The cold and snowy theme is set to continue next week – perhaps with the snow level dropping below 1,000m. So winter is forecast to return with a bang. A mild and damp final weekend of the season is forecast for Bulgaria, although there may be a few sunny breaks over the weekend – especially in the mornings. The forecast for Scandinavia is looking changeable and noticeably colder than of late. Sweden may catch some great late-season snowfall, with Are expecting up to 40cm of new snow which should set it up for a great final week of the season. Winter is set to return to the Scottish Highlands through Saturday, bringing with it some potentially heavy snowfall into next week. The great season is set to continue…!
