Sainte Foy

The resort: Sainte-Foy is a small resort that neighbours alongside some of the best & most notorious French resorts the Alps has on offer. A small but good selection of pistes cater for every ability but at a 3rd of the price cheaper than the nearby resorts of Val D’Isere, Tignes & Les Arcs. If buying a 6 day pass or more in Sanite-Foy there are discounts on day trips to these other resorts.

The piste’s: With only 16 piste’s, Sainte-Foy is famous for its off-piste skiing and snowboarding. While enough of variety for your beginners or confirmed skiiers, the off-piste & freestyle park will keep the advanced riders happy.

Facilities & Apres-ski: One of the few resorts that offers heli-skiing as it’s close enough to the Italian border where heli-skiing is legal, for those adrenaline seekers of you. Otherwise the resort offers dog sledding, paragliding, ski biking & snowshoeing. If you fancy more of a nightlife scene, it is only a short drive from Val D’Isere.
