The best off-piste ski resort
For freeriders there are 3 special, avalanche-protected areas. In the Techniride and off-track areas you can make fresh tracks between unmarked obstacles on the ungroomed slopes. The Shaper’s Paradise area has natural obstacles but is reserved for ski jumpers.
If you want to explore the untouched powder snow slopes outside of these areas in the Sainte Foy ski resort, you can choose from short runs through to legendary journeys, like the simpler route to the village of Le Monal or the demanding route to along the north side of La Fogliettaz. It’s even more exciting to go on an off-piste tour with one of the many experienced guides who will accompany skiers in Sainte Foy on request. Real powder snow professionals also have the opportunity of being set down by helicopter in the highest off-piste area and then making their way through French and Italian territory on untouched powder snow.
Another way of experiencing the unique powder snow in the Sainte Foy ski resort is to go on an extensive skiing tour. This little ski resort is well-known for ski touring with suitable routes going from Sainte Foy over the Pointe du Archeboc at 3272 metres and the Ruitor at 3486 metres.
If you’re looking for a wider choice of groomed slopes, just a short distance away are the surrounding large ski resorts of Val d’Isère, Tignes, Les Arcs and La Rosière, all easily reached in between 10 to 25 minutes. There skiers from Sainte Foy will find around an additional 650 kilometres of runs to suit all abilities.
There are also two free carpet lifts for beginners to practise on right next to the ski station at the foot of the runs in Sainte Foy.
In order for skiers to get between Sainte Foy village and Sainte Foy station quickly and easily there is a free shuttle bus throughout the day linking the station with the original village and the two hamlets of La Masure and Le Miroir.
