We are two adults with an 11 year old and a 13 year old.
We have never skied in La Rosiere before, and booked Chalet Chocard with Snowcrazy. We shared with a family we had never met before and we had a great time.
The chalet is 5 minutes from the slopes by minibus with the public bus stop right outside. However, the ski hosts were most accommodating and ran us to and fro, and whenever I did wait at the public busstop a Snowcrazy minibus would appear as if by magic. The chalet has a hottub (with fab views) and a steam room. There are bedrooms on the ground floor, with the boot room, a bedroom on the middle floor along with the lounge and kitchen, and two upstairs. The food was great, of a very high quality, we had breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner. We ended spending a lot less than we have previously. The chalet hosts were not fazed by anything and were very accommodating, nothing was too much trouble.
The attention to detail is fantastic. You get your boots fitted in the chalet and lift passes bought for you. All the staff seem lovely, they have other chalets in the resort.
La Rosiere isn't a huge ski area, and we were a bit disappointed by La thuile when we eventually got there but the weather wasn't great so I would like to give it another go. But we never seemed to queue. My son had a snowboard lesson and the ski instructor was a lot better than previous ESF instructors we have had. The guy who runs the ski school came to the chalet and chatted to us which was a nice touch. People went on about all the drag lifts in la Ros before we went, but there were certainly no more than other resorts, apart from the super long one to la Thuile.
Overall, one of our best Christmases and ski holidays combined!
