Cross Country skiing and footpaths
Footpaths in and around La Rosière
La Rosière has a network of marked footpaths that enable you to explore the mountainside at a more sedate pace!
The “Italian Trail” (Chemin de l’Italie) is suitable for all ages and fitness levels. Starting in Les Eucherts, breathe in the fresh mountain air as you take a 15-minute stroll through the pine forest (difficulty: easy). Walk for another 20 minutes to the top of Les Ecudets chairlift, admiring the unhindered views of Bourg Saint Maurice and the pastures around Séez as you wander along the road to Italy (which is closed to vehicles in winter).
Once you have acclimatised properly, try the “End of the road” (Le bout de route), an hour-long walk along which you might spot some cross-country skiers as you drink in views of the Combe des Moulins.
Fancy a challenge?
From Les Eucherts, set off on a 3-hour adventure up to the Roc Noir and back! This route offers breathtaking views of Mont Blanc, the Petit-Saint-Bernard pass, the Italian side of the mountain and the magnificent Tarentaise Valley landscapes. Welcome to La Rosière, also known as Paradise…
In La Rosière, 6km of slopes are dedicated to cross-country skiing. For a change from downhill skiing, why not give skate-skiing or classic cross-country a try? Make the most of the quiet as you glide through the forest on your cross-country skis!
Open throughout the winter season, the 6km of cross-country slopes are free of charge and open to everyone. From December to March, Séez boasts an 18-kilometre loop on a large plateau below the village. Head down the mountain on Les Ecudets chairlift to explore this new cross-country playground! The Séez – St Bernard trail is open from the end of December to mid-March, subject to snow cover.
