Sainte Foy, the village, the sunshine and… the snow!
Sainte Foy ski area ranges from 1550m to 2620m, offering 800 hectares of forests and high-altitude slopes with 26 pistes of varying difficulty.
Optimum snowfall from the very start of the season!
Situated at 1,550 m altitude, Sainte Foy enjoys excellent natural snow cover, with its lower slopes are sheltered from the wind. This microclimate is mainly created by easterly air currents arriving from the Italian Alps, creating heavy snowfall.
Thanks to this asset, for the second year running, Sainte Foy will be opening its training stadium from 25 November to 16 December 2018. This early opening will allow the ski clubs of the French Ski Federation and the Savoie Ski Committee to begin training on the Arpette Stadium, which is International Ski Federation approved.
Reliable, quality snow!
In order to guarantee regular, quality snow, every year we improve our snow production systems. This winter, 18 new snow cannons have been set up on the lower slopes of Crêt Serru, Tobbogan and Creux de Formeïan.
With these new installations, there will be a total of 80 snow cannons in the ski area.
Storm warnings? Head to Sainte Foy!
When storms force the neighbouring resorts to close their high-altitude, wind-exposed slopes, Sainte Foy offers the perfect alternative, with quality forest skiing on the lower slopes, which are sheltered from the wind.
