The slopes of Sainte Foy have a lot to recommend them. For starters, there are excellent snow conditions due to the north-west facing slopes, and plentiful sweeping runs through the trees for beginners and intermediates. There are also two adult and children’s nursery slopes that are served by three drag lifts. The three main chairlifts take you from 1550m right up to 2620m, and from here there is easy access to both on and off-piste areas.
Skiers, boarders and telemarkers alike will revel in the powder just yards from the pistes or amongst the trees, which lasts for days thanks to its north-west facing slopes. Particularly recommended runs for intermediates are the red piste from the Col de l’Aiguille and the Monal black to Sainte Foy. For off-piste fans the north face of the Fogliettaz offers an epic 1700m vertical descent. The powder fields are superb boarding terrain and snowboarders also have their own terrain park at Cret Serru.
