Ski Holidays

Sainte Foy Tarentaise skiing is great for...


Welcome to Sainte Foy Tarentaise Ski Resort

Situated nearby to the mega resorts of Tignes-Val d’Isère and Les Arcs, Sainte Foy is everything they are not – it’s small, quiet and more rustic. There are many pros to that, from the ski-in ski-out convenience of being close to your accommodation, the lack of crowds, to the cheaper prices. The pisted skiing may be limited to 15 runs serviced by six lifts – a total of 41km – but these are cruisy blues and reds with great views to match. And for experts, the off-piste is legendary. Add some traditional French charms and you have a very attractive resort.

Best time to ski in Sainte Foy Tarentaise

The season runs from the beginning of December through to mid April. With the resort height starting at 1,550m and lifts going up to 2,600m Sainte Foy is well placed to withstand lean spells and there’s usually a good cover the whole season. It can get quite cold in December and January with the sun not hitting the slopes until mid morning so that is worth bearing in mind. (There’s no shame in a late start). Things brighten up from February onwards with March offering great skiing with all the benefits of some spring sunshine.

Things to do in Sainte Foy Tarentaise

If you love the idea of getting off the beaten track, Sainte Foy is an ideal spot to hire a guide and give ski touring a go. You can also explore mountain tracks and forested paths by snowshoe, with trails also for children. In the resort there are 9km of cross-country trails. If you’d prefer something a bit more extreme, you can try scuba diving beneath the ice in nearby Tignes, ice climbing, paragliding, heliskiing and there’s a bobsleigh track you can descend in La Plagne. Alternatively there are three wellness centres in Sainte Foy where you can allow the sauna’s warmth to work its magic – and relax.
