Mountain bike



La Rosière offers all sorts of routes for young and old alike, from beginners to experienced downhillers.

Like alpine skiing in winter, mountain biking is practised on tracks organised by level, the easiest being the blue, to the most technical, the black.

The Roches Noires chairlift will allow you to access all these runs. You will be able to admire the unique panorama of the Haute Tarentaise balconies, the charm of the many villages of La Rosière, without forgetting the emblematic forest of Les Ecudets. It is possible to practice this discipline alone with your own equipment, or with rented equipment. You can also discover this activity or improve your skills thanks to the teaching and advice of qualified instructors from the mountain bike schools based in the resort.

If it was common to hear that cross-country mountain biking was an elitist practice, today the discovery of off-road itineraries is open to all thanks to the evolution of the equipment and the appearance of electrically assisted mountain bikes. Indeed, what used to be reserved for experienced mountain bikers is now accessible and offers the possibility of sharing this discovery even with different levels. So whether you’re an experienced rider or just an occasional cyclist, there’s no excuse not to discover the wealth of trails in La Rosière, go to the mountain bike hire shops in La Rosière.

This summer, the Roches Noires chairlift allows you to enjoy the summits on foot or with your bike! As in winter, the rates are adapted to the whole family: children, adults or seniors. You will be able to take full advantage of the mountain bike area of La Rosière and its DH tracks. If you are more of a walker, the Roches Noires chairlift will take you to the heights, at an altitude of over 2300m. From this chairlift, you will be able to reach the Fort de La Redoute Ruinée in 30 minutes.

This summer 2023, the Roches Noires chairlift is open 7 days a week from July 1st to September 8th, from 9.40am to 12.15pm and from 1.30pm to 4.30pm

You could also go a bit further afield on the Moulins trail, or the more challenging Suée trail, where you will pedal past the high-altitude chalets in Putétruit, Plan Pigeux and Le Vaz
