Sainte Foy resort guide

Sainte Foy has long been a secret that visitors have enjoyed and kept to themselves - even with the recent development and increase in size of accessible skiing.  Sainte Foy still stands alone as a bit of a beauty.

The village itself has kept its original charm with lots of alpine chalets and tastefully built apartments. It's a lovely place to stay.

On the practical side of things Sainte Foy has 2 grocery stores and 5 restaurants as well as 2 bars and 6 ski hire shops.

As for the skiing it is generally quiet. There is currently 35 km of pistes and an excellent amount of reasonably easy-access off piste areas for the more adventurous skier or boarder.

Lift passes for the area are around 150 euros for a 6 day week, so very reasonable and you will find yourself thinking you have the place to yourself.

In recent years new runs have been created such as the blue run, the Grend Solliet, and the year after the red run, La Fogliettaz.

The Sainte Foy station control have made every effort to be as environmental friendly as possible and have converted their trail groomers to use environmentally friendly bio-degradable fuel.

The workshop and garage is equipped with a biologic grease disposal until and also a hydrocarbon separator the help treat the waste and residue.

As a airport transfer business we hear tales that Sainte Foy is a brilliant place for families.

The quieter ski slopes, well located chalets and excellent ski schools make for many happy and returning customers year after year. Just don’t tell everyone!
