La Rosiere, Montvalezan

4.1
#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.

  • We come for decades in la rosiere. In all that time have we see it changing very small-scale with little apartment buildings to a full-fledged SKI village with 2 ski schools and a wide choice of chalets and apartments. Almost all buildings are in traditional Savoyard style and the small-scale character is reasonable. There is a link to la thuile ski area in Italy, and that makes it extra varied: lunch in Italy is delicious! Actually, there's not too much awareness to this jewel in the French Alps: the only busier.
