Traditional village


Until recently Sainte Foy was the undiscovered secret of the Savoie. Situated near the Espace Killy, this traditional Alpine village is a mecca for adventurous skiers looking for an old fashioned skiing experience whilst still enjoying good access to more conventional resorts. The resort of Sainte Foy is also known as Bonconseil, which is 6km above Sainte Foy Village.


Those on Sainte-Foy skiing holidays can enjoy snow shoe walks, guided excursions, dog sledding, snow biking, spa, and mountain paths.

Facilities for children

The “Petits Trappeurs” club will look after children aged 3 to 11 years at its new well equipped premises in the centre of the resort. ESF lessons are available for children aged 4 years and over; however, it is strongly recommended to book these well in advance, as places are limited.

Mountain info

Sainte Foy ski resort is famous for its vast amount of quiet, untouched powder slopes. The ski area, almost entirely in the trees and much of it off piste, is challenging. The sheltered north west facing bowl where the lifts are found receives excellent snow throughout the winter.

We would recommend hiring a guide to make the most of Sainte Foy’s off-piste itineraries, while its proximity to the Italian frontier means it is easy to organise a day’s heliskiing above La Thuile and La Rosière. The world-famous resorts of Tignes and Val d’Isère are also only a 20 minute drive away.

While Sainte Foy ski resort is best known for its off-piste itineraries, it is becoming an increasingly popular destination for families with young children, who love the quiet pistes and traditional village with accessible nursery slopes. We do however, recommend booking ski school early, as lessons tend to book up very quickly.
