TRAVELLING TO LA ROSIÈRE ON PUBLIC TRANSPORT
GETTING HERE BY TRAIN
Keen to protect the environment, and aware that most of the greenhouse gas emissions produced by a ski resort (57%) come from visitors travelling to their holiday destination, we encourage you to travel by train wherever possible, as it is the only real carbon-free mode of transport.
This is why the ski area is offering special discounts on lift passes for people travelling by train. More info here.
