La Rosiere, Montvalezan

(4.2/5 based on 120+ 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.

  • The village is very beautiful on a South-facing slope with a fantastic view over the Valley and the lifts and mountain trains Rougemassivet with Les Arcs ski resort on the other side. High mode (1850m) making it snow. Highest elevation reached by lift are less than 2600 m so there is no brutal height differences. Most of the skiing takes place above the tree line, which is an advantage but when it snows heavily, or clouds in power then it becomes difficult with the sieve. LR is as I see it, a family place with something for everyone: it is pretty small, which is an advantage when you want to keep track of a family, there are sun-drenched restaurants, välpistade blue and Red slopes for those who want to sharpen their carving, "adventure trail" for small children, a snow park with an air bag (free, which had never happened at Swedish ski resort) where the teenagers can make their 720s , and easily accessible, secure off piste when it snowed. We skied off piste with a guide a day, ok, and there is opportunity for heliskiing. The staff is nicer than in larger cities. It is possible to cross to La Thuille at Italian side which is larger, has a little more elevation changes but otherwise is more on the same theme. Those who go to LR seems most families of Belgians, Britons, Dutch, Danes. There is hardly any hard on a season that draws up the loose snow the morning after a snowfall before you come out of the ski storage room. There is also no partying 18-year-olds, and no Conference gang via Jägermeister is trying to rediscover his lost youth. LR is not an alternative to Chamonix or Andermatt, but it beats all Swedish ski resorts with horse lengths.

  • Accustomed to the major stations (3 valleys, avoriaz) j was surprised by this pretty resort on the whole. We were with our small children who enjoyed the activities. Field a fair bit if we stay on la rosière. Really family and quiet resort.
