La Rosière is something of a snow trap and has a higher snowfall average than nearby resorts of similar height (such as Val d’Isère or Arc 1800). However, its slopes are relatively exposed to wind and sun, and snow quality can vary. 

 

La Rosière is linked to the Italian resort of La Thuile, and conditions over the border can be very different. La Thuile has a lower snowfall average, but is more sheltered and sometimes has the better snow.
