Double your fun and go off-piste in Sainte Foy, one of the most affordable ski resorts in the French Alps

With bumper snowfall blanketing the Alps this ski season, adventurous skiers will be dreaming of doubling their fun and going off-piste with increasing numbers looking to the ski region of Sainte Foy, France for thrilling skiing off the beaten track at an affordable price.

Sainte Foy, a traditional village in the Tarentaise valley in Savoie, France remains remarkably unspoilt. Preserving its authentic charm and local Savoyard architecture, Sainte Foy is a place where residents of Val d´Isere, only 15 minutes away, go to escape the pressures of a large-resort, in the hope of finding a peaceful and friendly chalet style resort that boasts around 800 hectares of safe off-piste skiing through epic mountain routes.

Here, lifts take you up to 2,550 meters to the Col de l´Aiguille, the launch pad for much of the off-piste skiing for which Sainte Foy has earned its excellent reputation. Offering acres of virgin powder to explore on the numerous off-piste routes, such as Le Monal and the infamous 1,500m vertical descent at the north face of Fogliettaz, Sainte Foy, a quaint village developed only a decade ago, provides an intriguing and challenging area for off-piste skiers.

Charlie Williams, Business Development Manager of France’s leading eco-friendly leaseback property developer, Terresens, which has experienced a 25% increase in enquiry levels thanks to the recent snow conditions in France comments,

“Sainte Foy is the best kept secret in the Tarentaise valley where ski touring groups find themselves marking the resort as a ‘must do’ destination. Complementing its on-piste runs Sainte Foy has superb off-piste potential affording a unique snow draped paradise and, if you don’t have pots of cash lying around, heading off-piste to a smaller ski resort such as Sainte Foy, one of the most affordable ski resorts in the northern French Alps could give you a different experience.”
