Sainte Foy ski resort, which opened in the winter of 91/92, is often referred to as the “Jewel in the Crown” perched on the high wooded sunny slopes of the Isère Valley off the main road from Bourg St Maurice to Val d'Isère. It is less than half an hour's drive from three of the finest ski areas in France - Val d'Isère, Tignes and Les Arcs - yet it feels a million miles from the hustle and bustle of the big resorts and has enough skiing of its own to keep even advanced skiers happy with some of the world’s finest off-piste skiing in the unspoilt wilderness.

Forget the ugly, purpose-built, concrete blocks of many French ski stations. Sainte Foy ski resort is a harmonious blend of the traditional Savoyarde materials of wood, stone and slate built in the style of the old village in the valley below.

Sainte Foy’s stunning location gives breathtaking views of the Tarentaise valley below. The impressive Mount Pourri towers over this picturesque ski resort and, unlike many larger resorts, Sainte Foy remains true to its roots with plenty of alpine charm, uncrowded pistes and fantastic skiing.
