Sainte Foy ski resort

Built around an old farming village in a traditional architectural style, this quiet, car-free resort situated at 1550m (with top lifts at 2660m) remains true to its roots, retaining plenty of authentic alpine charm. Since its inception in the early 90’s, it’s managed to maintain that unassuming and genuine vibe, allowing it’s visitors to feel they are in the heart of a friendly village community.

The chalets are handcrafted, using traditional local stone and timber oozing character. Fairy-lights line the roofs, giving the resort a warm glow come evening.
The towering Mont Pourri mountain opposite and the spectacular Tarentaise valley below are unmatched in the area.

Season

December 14, 2019 – April 12, 2020

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.
