Don’t be put off the its size, it is in fact its size that makes it popular. People come for Ste Foy’s relaxed charm. This is a resort unlike the huge ski areas which surround it. A resort where people talk to each other on chairlifts, in restaurants and at the bar at the bottom of the hill. Stay a week and you start to make friends, come back the following year and you bump into familiar faces.
For the more adventurous, there are plentiful off piste sections through the trees to get your powder fix. For those who want to take a guide, Sainte Foy is famous for it’s vast amount of untouched off-piste terrain. Get face shot after face shot as you make your way down the famous ‘Fogliettaz’ run down the backside of Sainte Foy.
Sainte Foy has something for everyone. The pistes are very quite and well maintained, which make them perfect for beginners and intermediates. The Grande Soliet blue run that winds its way underneath the Marquise chair, was recently voted the 5th best run in the world. It is the perfect place to practice your carving turns or to pretend your taking part in a novice downhill event.
The views down the Tarentaise valley from Sainte Foy resort are stunning. The best place to enjoy them is on the terrace of the Marquise Restaurant which gets the sun almost all day. Sit here and watch the world go by while you enjoy a Vin Chaud- Bliss!
