La Rosiere is a southernly resort on the boarder with Italy. This purpose built area links with La Thuile, in Italy, to give over 150km of pistes. There is a good mix of pistes at La Rosiere that should keep most happy, although experts may have to seek out runs in the trees around La Thuile if conditions permit. The nursery slopes at La Rosiere are excellent. The lift system is somewhat slow which can cause hold ups at the lifts. Off the slopes, La Rosiere is modern but, surprisingly, attractive. Nightlife is more subdued than other Alpine resorts but there are plenty of places to eat and drink.

La Rosiere is not a big resort and is mostly seen as a place for families. It is very quiet and not big for nightlife. Having said that it was a great place to go as a couple of snowboarders looking for an adventure. We went in the last week of Jan and had non stop fun. The lifts were so quiet we never queued and the pistes were so empty we were still getting fresh tracks well into the morning. Off-piste was our domain alone it seemed, and we had endless runs through the trees off the side of the main run down to les Eucherts; never got boring. There is so much off-piste between the Plan du Repos and Fort chairs that we were still getting freshies at 4pm the day after it had snowed; that has never happened in a major resort! The drag lift to Italy is a bore for snowboarders but doable, and the runs through the trees there quite fun but we found the snow not as good over there.
One thing you have to do when you're in La Rosiere is try snow-kiting. You can do this either with skis or a snowboard and is inexpensive and great fun. Get lessons and gear from flymountains, instruction in English or French. You can really go uphill as well as down, and get big floaty jumps; it's amazing. There's not many resorts you can do this, so definitely worth a go.
