Sainte Foy ski resort
Sainte Foy is built around an old farming village in a traditional architectural style retaining plenty of authentic alpine charm.
The quiet, car-free resort is situated at 1550m with the top lifts at 2660m
Since its inception in the early 90’s, Sainte Foy has managed to maintain an unassuming and genuine vibe, allowing it’s visitors to feel they are in the heart of a friendly French village community.
The chalets are handcrafted, using traditional local stone and timber oozing character. Fairy-lights line the roofs, giving the resort a warm glow come evening.

Sainte Foy is a small resort where you’re highly unlikely to get stuck in any lift queue.
There are just 7 lifts with 41 kilometres of trails, including 2 green runs, 7 blue, 11 red and 4 black.
It gets great snow cover, thanks to its north-west facing slopes and altitude ranging from 1,550 metres up to the Col de L’Aiguille at 2,620 metres, which leads to on and off-piste skiing in a wide bowl.
You can do a guided off-piste tour to explore the deserted farming hamlet of Le Monal, and heliskiing is a major drawcard.
Sainte Foy also has a terrain park, boardercross and slalom.
Stay in a self-catered or luxury chalet at the resort, in the main village or in one of the surrounding small farming hamlets, which are linked by a free shuttle bus.
Non-ski activities and experiences
Activities include snowshoeing, dog sledding, sledging, ice driving, paragliding and ice diving.
