Described as one of the best-kept secrets in the French Alps, Sainte Foy is a family-friendly resort in the Tarentaise valley. A commune in the Savoie department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France, at an altitude of 1550m, Sainte Foy ski resort is an attractive village full of authentic alpine charm, with traditional Savoyard style buildings and luxury ski chalets throughout.

With 100 snow cannons on hand and air currents from the Italian Alps bringing heavy snowfall, this resort has a great snow record for skiers to enjoy and is only around twenty minutes from the nearby large resorts of both Tignes and Val d‘Isere too.

Overlooking the Thuria Glacier, this ski village is the perfect family-friendly resort with something for everyone. As it’s a smaller resort, everything you need is within a five-minute walk, including the bars, restaurants, ski lifts and ski schools.

The ski area also offers seven blue slopes accessible with a ski pass to beginners on the first two sectors (Plan Bois slopes, Chapel, Combes, Charmettes, Grand Solliet, Natur’RenardCrêt and Serru du Bas).

Despite having a relatively small ski area compared to its neighbouring resorts, this French resort still has a good selection of pistes for intermediate skiers, with a full mountain descent possible by taking the L'Aiguille down to Creux de Formeian and then La Savonette.

Sainte Foy skiing also provides advanced skiers with ample terrain and powder to enjoy. Providing three marked black pistes, the most difficult run is the 2km long Crystal Dark but advanced skiers also enjoy the ample tree skiing and off piste powder.

Thanks to its location, skiers can also make their way over to the neighbouring resorts of Tignes and Val d’Isere in around 20 minutes by car to enjoy these ski areas too.
