This winter, the La Rosière-Espace San Bernardo ski area will open a new sector: The Mont Valaisan. Located on the French side of the ski area, to the right of the Redoute Ruinée Fort, five new red pistes have been created and two six-person chairlifts have been built: the Moulins and the Mont-Valaisan. The expansion, which has cost 15 million euros, will offer a more technical ski area with more freeride opportunities.
It will give the area a new highest point with an altitude of 2800m, it will create 5 new red pistes and open up a whole new area for freeriding.
