Although La Rosiere is, by comparison to nearby options, a small resort, there are plenty of other activities on offer in the village for those who might not wish to ski or fancy a different experience during their stay.
Sightseeing in La Rosiere
The best way to sightsee anywhere in the French Alps really is from somewhere high and this can be done either with an engine or without. La Rosiere’s close proximity to Europe’s highest mountain Mt. Blanc is a great excuse for a heli trip. It doesn’t have to be of the heli-skiing variety, but just a sightseeing heli tour would be a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Evolution 2 is a great go-to for all mountain-based activities and they have English-speaking instructors and guides to make things that bit easier.
If you want to just go do your own thing, then there are plenty of marked snowshoeing trails around La Rosiere and down towards Montvalezan, a small village which is part of this stunning ‘commune’ perched high above the Tarentaise Valley. Snow shoes are available to rent in most of the resorts ski hire shops.
Leisure activities in La Rosiere
There are a number of spas in La Rosiere that might make for a welcome break from the slopes. Give those weary legs a rest at the O des Cimes, Les Balcons or Le Miravidi. Ice-skating is a popular off-the-slopes activity, and the ‘Patinoire’ (ice rink) is open throughout the day and in the evenings for a bit of family après. There is also a cinema which shows limited English films and a bowling alley too. Back outdoors, paragliding on skis (or on foot), or learning to snow kite would be pretty radical options.
