La Rosiere, Montvalezan
(4.2/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to La Rosiere and many more Montvalezan attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Montvalezan trip itinerary builder.

  • La rosière, in the map of the ski area, can easily compete with very large Alpine Resorts that are in Tignes, Val Rhorens, or les Menuires. Its ski areas is very varied and with an impressive vertical drop of more than 1800 meters. The link with Italy gives other possibilities and a very varied ski. However this connection is inconvenient (a flat of 500 metres) and it must spend the day in Italy to make it worthwhile. On the other hand, station is on a human scale, in a very family atmosphere, with all essential facilities (cinema, ice rink etc)
