New for Winter 18/19
Exciting new ski area developments for La Rosiere for 2018/19
Some of our team were part of a trip to the resort of La Rosiere, a favourite with families and part of the international Espace San Bernardo ski area, to hear first about their plans to spend 15 million Euros on expanding the ski area. The exciting new plans include building five new red graded pistes, bringing the total to 198km of runs, and adding two new 6-seater lifts! The addition of the new Mont-Valaisan peak will raise the altitude to 2800m and create lots of secured new free-riding opportunities.
Discover our new accommodation in La Rosiere below, and be one of the first to ski the new slopes!
