St Foy

Overview

A small village on the road from Bourg St Maurice to Val d'Isere this resort has always been hugely popular with off piste skiers but is becoming increasingly attractive to families. The small amount of pisted runs will be of no use to keen piste bashers looking for high mileage, but for off piste skiers it offers some of the best runs in the world. Whilst the small amount of pisted runs are ideal for young children learning to ski.

This is also an ideal resort for clients who want to visit different resorts as Val d'Isere, Tignes, Les Arcs, La Plagne and La Rosiere are all within a maximum 1 hour drive, making St Foy a great base for the ski safari trip.

Positive

  • Cheap lift pass
  • Off piste mecca
  • Safe untracked powder skiing within the lift network

Negative

  • Slow chairlifts
  • Too quiet for some
  • Small area of piste skiing

Offslope/apres ski

Quiet and centred around a few bars in the village. Some off slope activities to do for those wanting paragliding, snow shoeing and dog sledding.

Our View

An almost legendary area for off piste skiers but not suitable for high mileage intermediate piste skiers. Quite good for children learning to ski.
