Sainte Foy Tarentaise ski resort

Built around an old farming village in a traditional architectural style, this quiet, car-free resort is more affordable than many in the region and therefore attracts a lot of families.

Season

December 23, 2017 – April 15, 2018

Ski area

A small resort with just seven lifts and 41 kilometres of trails, including two green runs, seven blue, 11 red and four black, you’re unlikely to get stuck in a lift queue at Saint Foy.

It gets great snow cover, thanks to its north-west facing slopes and altitude ranging from 1,550 metres up to the Col de L’Aiguille at 2,620 metres, which leads to on and off-piste skiing in a wide bowl. You can do a guided off-piste tour to explore the deserted farming hamlet of Le Monal, and heliskiing is a major drawcard. Saint Foy also has a terrain park, boardercross and slalom.

Accommodation

Stay in a self-catered or luxury chalet at the resort, in the main village or in one of the surrounding small farming hamlets, which are linked by a free shuttle bus.

Off-piste

Activities include snowshoeing, dog sledding, sledging, ice driving, paragliding and ice diving. There’s also plenty of pubs, wine bars, delis and traditional restaurants.
