La Rosière is very family oriented and has received the French government’s ‘Famille Plus Montagne’ award for providing the highest service standard. In the practical sense the resort is well laid out with the nursery facility and children’s ski slopes for the youngest skiers all within a few steps of most of the accommodation. The restaurants are also all family-friendly and there are plenty of things-to-do for families off the slopes too.

For the youngest children The Galopins (+33(0)4 79 06 89 67; accept children aged 18 months and older in the excellent modern, purpose-built slopeside facility. Ski lessons are available on a graduating scale (mixed with indoor or outdoor snow play) with specially trained ski school staff for children aged three or four years or older.
