Best tips for Espace San Bernardo-La Rosière- La Thuile
La Rosiere is very different from its famous neighbours such as Val d’Isere-Tignes and Les Arcs – much smaller, quieter and sunnier. Many reporters are more impressed than we are by the skiing, which mainly consists of several runs down a single (admittedly very wide) open slope. But the link with La Thuile over the border in Italy adds another dimension. La Rosiere is built in traditional chalet style high up on the road from Bourg-St-Maurice to the Petit St Bernard pass to Italy. In winter the road ends at a car park at the top of La Rosiere, just below the main lifts. There’s a small main village and an even smaller, newer satellite (Les Eucherts), a short bus ride – or a floodlit forest walk – to the east. This is more or less self-sufficient, but offers less choice of everything than the main village.
