Despite its powdery slopes and awesome skiing routes, St Foy manages to fly under the radar for a lot of skiers and because of this, is one of our favourite hidden gems in the French Alps. Sat between the north-western faces of two peaks, the slopes rarely get busy here and so the limited amount of pistes are often worth more than double the pistes of anywhere else simply due to their quality. This resort is best suited to beginners and advanced skiers rather than intermediates.
Budget-friendly holidays to the French Alps are available from most major airports in the UK. There are a number of ways to access this resort, but we suggest flying to either Lyon or Geneva and getting a transfer from there which will take around 2 and a half hours. Check the Cheeky Trip comparison site for the best deals to winter ski resorts around the world. Flight duration to either of these major airports are usually in the range of 1 and a half to 2 hours.
The best time to visit St Foy is anytime outside of the school holidays. There is a stark contrast between the overcrowdedness of families during the school holidays and the empty slopes outside of these times. If possible, try and book for when the slopes are empty for the best experience. Apart from this, just head to the resort during normal ski season and you can expect to find fresh dumps of snow on most days.
As already touched upon, it is beginners and advanced skiers that are going to benefit the most from the slopes in this resort. During the quieter times of year, the unhurried, unthreatening atmosphere is the perfect environment to practice your first turns and ideal for building that confidence up. Advanced skiers will find a variety of chutes, jumps and empty pistes to cut up some snow and maximise their days out on the slopes.
St Foy has a variety of accommodation options on offer to suit all budgets and preferences of travellers. Hamlets, chalets, apartments and small-scale hotels are just some of the places that you can rest and relax when you aren’t flying down the slopes. Most of the restaurants and places to eat are located within these accommodation choices themselves, but luckily most of them have cuisine of the very finest order for you and your loved ones to enjoy.
