La Rosiere ski resort in Savoie region of the French Alps is ploughing ahead with a multi-million euro expansion that will add two new chair lifts and a network of new pistes in time for Christmas.

The high-altitude resort is close to big name sites like Val d’Isere and Les Arcs, with 160km of pistes on sunny south-facing slopes close to the Italian border. It is linked with the Italian resort of La Thuile and claims to receive amongst the best snowfalls in the northern Alps.

The two new six-seater chair lifts will allow the resort to open a new bowl-shaped area below the summit of Mont Valaisan, offering 6km of additional runs.
