Absolutely one of my favourite places to ski. Have been hankering after skiing in La Rosiere for a while and was not disappointed when we visited over Christmas/New Year 2016/17. Having skied the vast majority of Alpine resorts, big and small, over the last 30+ years you shouldn't underestimate how fun this resort is. Whilst the skiing may not be as extensive as some of the larger ski areas - 3 Valleys, Portes du Soleil etc there is plenty to keep you entertained for a week, particularly with children, and especially when the link to La Thuile is open. This link can be closed in bad weather but that's the same for any connected ski area. The skiing, in general, has a good mix of greens for beginners, some excellent cruisy blues, a mixture of challenging reds over various terrain and a few mind-blowing steep black runs. Overall the skiing on the French side is slightly easier and is mainly south facing so plenty of sunshine to be enjoyed. On the Italian side, which is predominantly north facing, the runs are more challenging and can tend to be a little icier as a consequence of their position. The only area of the resort I didn't particularly enjoy was the drop down to Les Eucherts which can get very congested with ski schools and people returning at the end of the day to that area of the village which can result in scraped (icy) pistes - think Meribel but on a smaller scale. If you are thinking of heading to La Rosiere I would stay in accommodation at the top of the village, close to the lifts, otherwise, you'll have to do a little bit of walking or catch the navette which drops you in the main resort car park. The resort is reasonably quiet, as are the pistes, so this is a great place for families and for first-timers. If you are a good/expert skier then give La Rosiere a try - you will not be disappointed. The ability to ski to Italy and back, despite the links being a little slow, in time for ski school drop off and pick up is not to be sniffed at! If you do get bored you can hop down the road to Sainte Foy, although the piste skiing isn't that great IMHO. Alternatively, you can be in Les Arcs or Espace Killy (Tignes/Val D'Isere) in less than an hour by driving to the bottom of the lift systems. PS - please don't go - I want to keep this hidden gem to myself!!!
