The runs may be limited, but they are wide and quiet, so beginner's can go at their own pace and will have plenty of space for practising their turns. The small area also means you're never far from the village, so it's easy to take breaks if your endurance is flagging.
The top half of the mountain ais a powder bowl, whilst the lower runs wind through the trees, so intermediates have the best of both worlds. It's possible to ski from peak to base on red runs, from L'Aiguille, to Creux de Formeian, and onto La Savonette.
The Morion and Crystal Dark black runs from the Col de l'Aiguille peak are a good place to start for those who like a challenge. You can then move on to exploring the vast amounts of off-piste terrain. For a longer ride, start at the top of the Foglietta and ski back to Sainte Foy on the road from Bourg-St-Maurice to Val d'Isère.
Sainte Foy has fabulous off-piste routes with stunning and unforgettable scenery. The north face of Fogliettaz is one of the best routes in the area, much favoured by mountain guides because of its snow quality. There are also loads of ski touring routes with summits of up to 3,800m, including the Archeboc and Ruitor peaks. If you'd rather venture off in a group, lots of local ski schools offer lessons and guides.
|Sainte-Foy is a natural playground for boarders, with a real variety of terrain. The Cret Serru terrain park at 2040m is a great place to blow off some steam or test your skills. And freeriders can hire a guide to explore the vast off-piste areas. |
