The Espace San Bernardo is a vast ski area that straddles France and Italy, linking the two resorts of La Rosière in Savoie (France) and La Thuile in the Aosta Valley (Italy).

On the French side, La Rosière is one of  very few resorts that faces due south, meaning it enjoys record amounts of sunshine every year.
For further information, please see the Espace San Bernardo page.

The marking of the slopes

The marking of the slopes

Discover the bilateral marking of the slopes on the ski area, in order to anticipate your outings on the slopes.   


Piste border markers match the colour of the slope. The right edge is marked with the colours of the slope with an orange device. This allows you to find your way around in foggy weather. Outside these signs, you are off-piste.

Yellow and black striped poles, ropes and net = DANGER!

Road Signs are along the slope with its name, its colour and the position number (it's decreasing when you go down). Please mention this number when reporting an accident (in France only).
