Ste-Foy-Tarentaise

France

Ste-Foy-Tarentaise off piste

The upside

  • Safe untracked powder within the lift system, and epic runs outside it
  • Good base for visits to Val d’Isère/Tignes, Les Arcs, La Plagne and La Rosière/La Thuile
  • Great value (including very low lift pass prices)
  • Quiet most of the time, but ... _

The downside

  • Too quiet for some visitors; very little après-ski action and very few restaurants
  • Very limited piste network
  • Still two (out of four) slow chairlifts
  • Now more British than French_

Summary

Ste-Foy is a small, attractive, unpretentious resort developed since 1990, at the foot of what started life as a cult off-piste mountain. It remains excellent for experts but now attracts many others, including families. Keen piste-bashers will want to travel to big resorts nearby – easily done by car.
