Majority of △ : You’re more of a Carver

On your skis, you like speed and carving the groomed slopes. Just like a world cup competitor, you’ll be able to beat your downhill record on the François Berthod run on the Italian side. This slope is used for world cup stages and is a very well-groomed and competitive slope that really shreds. On the French side, the five new red level ski slopes on the Mont Valaisan sector allows you to let rip from one turn to another, clocking up the kilometers. To benefit from a perfectly groomed run, be the first there and check out our First Track VIP experience between 7:30am and 9am. And why not have a change and finish the day with some downhill sledging on the new multi-season Xtreme monorail sledging track.


Majoriy of ☐ : You’re more of a Freestyler

For you, riding symbolises adrenaline and airtime. If skiing on the ski slopes bores you then head to the Poletta snowpark! Accessible by chairlift, the park lets you enjoy one rotation after another and find your ideal line with rails and kickers that become progressively more difficult as you head down. There is even a Big Air Bag to safely dial in your next tricks. To grab a bite to eat or a drink whilst enjoying some music, the high-altitude bar/restaurant “Le Plan du Repos” ensures a great atmosphere with a DJ and a large south facing terrace.

And why not tempt yourself with an introduction to snowkiting with a trained instructor, at the Col of the Petit Saint-Bernard; letting you get to new heights from a different angle.


Majority of : you’re more of a Freerider

Since December 2018, the Espace San Bernardo has expanded its ski area. Don’t miss the new freeride possibilities on the Mont Valaisan sector, at an altitude of 2800m. Another spot where the snow’s good: the Ziitieux snowcross. Accessible by the Roches Noires chairlift this ungroomed space is especially reserved for skiers wanting to get a taste of the freeride experience in a safe environment. For the more advanced, the Italian side has a reputation for having some magical off-piste routes. Equip yourself with a transceiver/shovel/probe/air bag, don’t ever go alone and let the ski patrol team know where you are heading. You go entirely at your own risk.

For those who don’t dare adventure out, maybe think about a supervised outing with the freeride instructors from the ski schools. It’s always good to train regularly in order to keep the right reflexes in case of an emergency: every Monday morning, a transceiver training session is organised, don’t miss it!


Majority of X : You’re more of a Lifestyler

You like to ski but above all you enjoy the après-ski, those moments when you can relax with a drink amongst friends or be in a steam room. Check out the unique Dolce Vita adventure experience between France and Italy. As well as enjoying 2 days of skiing in the La Rosière – San Bernardo ski area, you can also relax in the superb thermal baths of Pré Saint Didier in Italy. For more information:

On the slopes, don’t miss the opportunity to toast with a Spritz on the wonderful Antigel terrace. Head up to the top of the Fort Express chairlift for the amazing Panoramic Experience; a walkway above a sheer drop of several dozen meters which allows you to enjoy the breathtaking 360° views. Use the PhotoPoint to capture the moment!
