An expert guide to ski holidays in Les Gets, France


Both parts of La Rosière’s village have good beginner areas and longer easy runs to progress to. And there’s a fun run for kids with St Bernard dog-themed obstacles to ski through and around, reached from the Lièvre Blanc drag lifts from La Rosière Centre.

Intermediates will find some enjoyable wide, shallow blue runs that make for easy cruising. These include Perdrix and Tétras down to La Rosière Centre and Papillon down to Les Eucherts.  Most of the runs on the Italian side down towards La Thuile are very gentle too – many of the Italian reds should really be marked blue.

The reds on the La Rosière side, however, are genuine reds, notably steeper than the blues but without any very steep sections and so great fun cruises.

Experts will enjoy the two black runs on the lower slopes below village level if snow conditions are good. But the main attraction locally is the off piste, including the lift-served area on Mont Valaisan and a freeride area called The Zittieux Snow Cross that is avalanche controlled and marked on the piste map.

Over in Italy there are some seriously steep black runs (such as pistes 2 and 3 on the lower slopes), more off piste and some heliskiing options, including a run from the Ruitor glacier which ends back in France, a short taxi ride from La Rosière.
