On the Mountain

Off the Mountain


Sainte Foy Station is a hidden gem with an authentic, relaxed and charming alpine vibe. The resort is perfect for families and learners: 4 main lifts to navigate over a large terrain. But don't be fooled: off-piste, it's a true playground dream for powder and freeride lovers. Its charming traditional architecture of stone and wooden chalets are what make this resort so special.

Sainte Foy enjoys a special microclimate including heavy snowfalls, so when storms force the neighbouring resorts to close their high-altitude, wind-exposed slopes, Sainte Foy offers the perfect alternative with plenty of tree skiing. For non-skiers there are also marked trails for snowshoe hiking and strolling in the forest.

It is surrounded by 4 much larger ‘mega resorts’ of Val d’Isere, Tignes, Les Arcs & La Rosiere, giving maximum flexibility for choice of ski area, there is something for everyone.

Located at 1550m, with with ski lifts going up to 2660, the Sainte Foy ski area has 6 lifts (4 chairlifts and 2 free carpets for learners) and 26 ski runs, including a toboggan run specially designed for children.
Known for its "acres of powder", the vast terrain between the lifts and pistes is a true playground for freeriders that will leave you wanting more.

The snow front and charming village centre has everything you need: family or local-run bars and restaurants with a large local British community. There are many activities for younger children and some more vibrant bars and pubs for the older ones. Another advantage of this charming alpine gem is that you can access everything without a car or with skis on your feet.
