Sainte Foy & The Giants
Sainte Foy is very much a resort with a delightfully split personality - it offers two entirely different vibes. For the family or group looking to share that cosy “Small ski resort” feeling, you could not do better. Traditional stone and wood chalets and the friendliest of atmospheres in a quiet child safe environment. There is a loyal UK based following here and as such it can feel like a home from home. Those learning can progress from easy blues right through to safe patrolled off piste and onward to serious guided trips. For this experience you really want to stay slopeside and we have some great options for you.
The yin to that yang is the adventurous pursuit of ski miles. And what a location Sainte Foy and its surroundings have for those who wish to jump in a car and travel a short distance for an astonishing array of slopes. For this adventure we can put you up in Sainte Foy or nearby. Sainte Foy will be the natural choice for the snowy days as the tree lined slopes offer better visibility in near white out conditions. But when the sun shines and there are Km’s of piste to be bagged, then every direction offers a huge skiing opportunity. You will be within about half an hour of the largest resorts in the Alps and will usually get in via the back door. Les Arcs, (Paridiski) Tignes (Espace Killy) and La Rosierre (Espace San Bernardo) which also allows a ski into Italy, make an irresistible offering for the intrepid piste hound.
Sainte Foy Tarentaise
The classic warm comforting blanket of a resort. Car free around the centre, short lift queues, tree lined runs and ideal for learning off piste. The resort is charming. There are some cool English style bars and regular live music in the Black diamond. Those that come here usually keep doing so.
