La Rosière: The Franco-Italian resort
LA ROSIÈRE: A VILLAGE STATION
Located at 1850 meters above sea level, the resort of La Rosière will allow you to recharge your winter sports holiday. The history of the resort goes back to 1920 when a group of young skiers decided to create the Montvalezan Sports Union and in 1960, the first ski competitions were organized. It was in 1985 that the crossing of the border was possible thanks to the construction of the Chardonnet chairlift. Thus was born the first international ski area bordering Italy. Summer activity began in 1960 with the creation of the very first holiday centre in the Eucherts.

LA ROSIÈRE: THE ECO-RESPONSIBLE STATION
Faced with the many current ecological challenges, the ski resort of La Rosière has implemented several actions to reduce its environmental footprint. In order to preserve its wild nature and the sensitive environments of the ski area, La Rosière created its own Environmental Observatory in 2014 to better reference the flora and fauna. In partnership with the Vanoise National Park and the Observatory of Mountain Galliforms, the resort protects the amphibians present on the estate, the lizards of the walls or the grouse-lyre on the edge of the woods of the mountain areas. In addition, La Rosière makes it a point of honour to highlight its pastures and its farm by creating a cohabitation with the herders for their animals. Finally, a re-vegetation policy was put in place a few years ago to limit erosion and optimize soil cover.
