La Rosiere announces ski area expansion for winter 2018/19

La Rosiere announces ski area expansion for winter 2018/19

La Rosiere ski resort in France plans to expand their ski area for next winter with 2 new high-speed chairlifts and 5 new pistes. Opening in December 2018, the new ski area aims to increase the resort’s appeal for intermediate and advanced skiers and snowboarders.

La Rosiere sits on the French-Italian border with access to slopes on both sides. The French side boasts long and gentle slopes with more challenging runs on the Italian side. The resort sits right in the centre of the Haute-Tarentaise region in the French Alps near Les Arcs, Tignes & Val d’Isere.

The new ski area will be built in a higher section of the resort, under Mont Valasian at 2891m, creating snow-sure slopes up to 2800m with guaranteed snow coverage from December to late April. The total investment is approximately 15 million Euros and will create 20 direct jobs.

What is included in the new ski area?

The new Moulins Express will whisk skiers from 1935m to 2450m and the shorter Valaisan Express will take skiers up to the ski area’s new high point to 2800m. The lifts alone will cost 13.5 million Euros out of the 15 million Euros total. The expansion includes:

  • 2 6-seater chairlifts
  • 5 red pistes
  • Access to off- piste areas
  • A new highest point at 2800m
