Why you should choose Sainte Foy as your next skiing destination
15th June 2016
You may have heard of the resort of Sainte Foy but few know exactly where it is and what it’s all about…. well wonder no more – it’s in the Tarentaise (so near Val D’Isere, Tignes, Les Arcs La Plagne and the like!) And its one of the best kept secrets in the French Alps – in fact many of you will have passed the road for it on the way up to Val d’Isere and Tignes but blinked and missed it!
With its location it’s easily reached by train from Bourg St Maurice or from the main local airports that serve the Alps such as Chambery, Geneva Lyon or Grenoble.
Being ‘secret’ means that you have the advantage of no queues and uncrowded slopes, it’s a relaxed friendly gem with both Alpine charm and traditional Savoyard architecture.
Sainte Foy has great skiing for all abilities on 35km of piste as well as some designated off-piste free ride areas too. There are 2 green, 7 blue, 11 red and 4 black runs plus off-piste on a wide variety of terrain from wide open blues, rolling red runs and tree lined runs which are great for snowy days.
Sainte Foy is great for families as it has fantastic family-friendly beginner and nursery slopes and FREE lift passes for children under 7!
When you book, you’ll receive Sainte Foy lift passes which are half the price of Val d’isere and les Arcs, plus should you wish to take a Première Neige ski safari over to one of the nearby busier resorts, you’ll receive a discount with your Sainte Foy lift pass.
