La Rosiere, Montvalezan

4.2
#1 of 7 in Things to do in Montvalezan
La Rosiere touts views of Les Arcs and 150 km (93 mi) of pistes close to Italy's border. Dozens of red, blue, and black slopes make this a good base for intermediate skiers. The area is also rich in history: on the high piste sits Redoute Ruinée, a border fort built in the 1890s and used to defend France against invading forces during World War I. It was strengthened in World War II, and a force of 47 men defended it against multiple attacks from Italy. Hannibal is thought to have marched his elephants through this area, and the Saint Bernard breed of dog takes its name from the chapel that rests on its col.

  • excellent Savoyard resort perched at 1850 m above Bourg St Maurice in the Tarentaise Valley. The chalets wooden, stone and slate roofing are the authentic charm of this resort. Winter a very thick layer of snow covers the green pastures. Well equipped station, several shops, but also bowling, ice rink, spa, dog sleds, snowshoeing tour are the delight of all. Downside: station exposed to the wind.
