La Rosière is a ski resort in southeastern France, located in the commune of Montvalezan, in the Savoie department, at 1,850 m (6,070 ft) above sea level. It faces south with fine views across the valley to nearby Les Arcs.

There is no shortage of retail options with everything on offer from commercial hypermarkets to tiny high street boutiques. Bourg is essentially big enough to have a cinema, a campsite and weekly markets but small enough to remain friendly and manageable, all surrounded by the spectacular mountainous landscape.

Col du Grand-Saint-Bernard is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.469m (8,100ft) above sea level, located in Switzerland. The pass, called Col du Grand-Saint-Bernard in French, and Colle del Gran San Bernardo in Italian is 74.6 km (46.35mi) long running from Martigny, in the canton of Valais in Switzerland, towards Aosta, the capital of the Valle d’Aosta region, in northwestern Italy. The road is closed from November to June.

The road’s winding design, providing stunning panoramic views, is very curvy and fun for a leisurely ride, so it pays to take it slow.


By Car…

Take the motorway to Albertville. Follow the dual carriageway to Moûtiers. Continue along the A-road (RN 90) to Bourg Saint Maurice. Then drive up to La Rosière by the B-road (RD 1090) towards the Little St Bernard pass (Col du Petit St Bernard) and Italy.

Please note: If travelling by car, satnavs may direct you through the Mont Blanc tunnel and then over the Little St Bernard pass. Whilst this route is fine when the pass is open (typically June – November), please check that the pass is open. The pass is not open in winter, so please do not travel through the Mont Blanc tunnel in winter to reach La Rosière unless you are travelling from northern Italy into France. If the pass is open, from the Mont Blanc Tunnel travel on the road 5526 through Pré St Didier to La Thuile and then over the Little St Bernard pass to La Rosière.

By Train…

Anxious to preserve its environment and aware that most of the greenhouse gas emissions of a ski resort (57%) come from transporting holidaymakers to their vacation location, we encourage you, as much as possible, to use trains, the only mode of transportation that really decarbonises.

Once you’ve arrived at the Bourg Saint Maurice train station, you can get to La Rosière by taking a shuttle bus or get a coach should you prefer.
