La Rosiere, France
The French resort of La Rosiere is good for beginners looking for quiet slopes and a friendly atmosphere. It’s not as big as the nearby Les Arcs or La Plagne but that doesn’t mean to say it fails to deliver on the snowboarding front.
If anything, the quieter slopes and experienced schools are the perfect place to learn to snowboard, with 80% of the pistes ideal for beginners and intermediates. Plus, there are a few free lifts around for real beginners who don’t want to shell out all their hard-earned wedge on a lift pass for the whole mountain.
