    1 of 1 - La Rosiere Ski Slopes


Espace Killy

From the 70’s concrete jungle at Tignes Le Lac, to the newly designed Tignes les Boisses and also to the charming 
Tignes Les Brévières there is a resort for everyone but one common attraction: they all have direct access to the famous Espace Killy ski area. With some of the highest runs in Europe Espace Killy brings guaranteed snow – even in Summer! Well known by experts skiers from around the World the joint ski area between Val d’Isère and Tignes is much sought after.


This off-the-beaten track resort is ideal for those who want to avoid the crowds of the mega neighbouring resorts. Sainte Foy's own ski area is small but highly rated and with easy driving distance to the larger ski areas listed above it offers a great base to discover the whole area.

La Rosiere

Linked with La Thuile in Italy, it is the only Savoyard resort to offer an international ski area of 150 km pisted runs. The ski area is known as Espace San Bernardo. With a high sunshine record (thanks to the south facing aspect of La Rosière) and an excellent snow record (with north facing slopes in Italy), l’Espace San Bernardo offers something for every type of skier.


Considering the convenient, accessible location and the extent of terrain on offer, it’s perhaps surprising that Valmorel seems so far to have slipped below the radar of most British skiers. The main village begins at around 1400m and is lift-linked to Celliers, Doucy Combelouvière and (beyond the famous Col de la Madeleine) Saint François Longchamp. The resulting 165km of pistes are spread across an impressive 3600 hectares, whose combined terrain is known as le Grand Domaine.
