About Sainte Foy Tarentaise
"The tiny village of Sainte Foy high in the French Alps may only be a stone's throw from one of the world's classic ski resorts at Val d’Isère, but it is rapidly gaining a reputation as an oasis of peace and tranquility which also offers direct access to some of the finest off-piste skiing in Europe... The off-piste possibilities are legendary, with some slopes capable of taking skiers through their first gentle turns in virgin snow and others offering some of the most testing extreme adventure" The Courier
Sainte Foy enjoys breathtaking views of the Tarentaise valley below while the impressive Mont Pourri towers above. Unlike many larger resorts, Sainte Foy remains true to its roots, retaining plenty of authentic Alpine charm, friendly village atmosphere, traditional Savoyard architecture, uncrowded pistes and fantastic skiing. In fact it’s where ski instructors from other resorts love to come on their days off!
Sainte Foy Tarentaise boasts good snow and this is enhanced with snow-making machines on the pistes. There have been amazing snowfall records over the past few years – with snow still heavily falling long after the season has shut!
Uncrowded Ski Slopes and Lifts
Sainte Foy's slopes offer plenty of choice for beginners, intermediates & advanced skiers, as well as off-piste powder hounds.
Ski in style this winter with stunning views, varied runs & quaint mountain restaurants where you can relax, soak up the atmosphere & re-energise in the afternoon.
One of Sainte Foy's key attractions is that even during peak weeks, such as school holiday weeks, there is rarely a queue to be seen at a chairlift and ski runs are often empty!
Excellent Skiing for All Abilities
There are currently 35km of piste (ski runs which have been route-marked and prepared by grooming machines) as well as designated off-piste freeride areas at Sainte Foy - ideal for all skiers and snowboarders alike.
Whether you're looking for uncrowded, family-friendly beginner slopes or untracked powder, off-piste terrain and tree skiing, Sainte Foy has got it all. Plus, no matter where in Sainte Foy you venture ski runs all lead to easy meeting points.
