It’s important to understand that your journey from Geneva Airport to La Rosiere 1850 will take you to a very high altitude. This can present its own potential complications if you are not used to it.
Geneva airport sits at 430m, while La Rosiere ski resort sits at an altitude of 1,850m. Some passengers can experience mild discomforts, such as nausea, headaches and dizziness. That can be symptoms of the change in altitude. Young children are often those who are at risk of feeling unwell.
As a result of the combination between such air pressure and steep, serpentine roads, the journey can be difficult. In this situation, ask your driver to lower the temperature in the vehicle to help you feel more comfortable.
The breathtaking landscapes of the magical Tarentaise Valley, during your way to La Rosiere, can act as a great medicine for you if you will feel unwell.
