The Ski Resort
The Sainte Foy Tarentaise ski area offers 26 pistes, most of which are marked blue and red. For beginners and children, there are two magic carpets with green training pistes in the valley area, which can be used free of charge. Those who are already more confident on their skis can take advantage of the long blue runs along the Grand Plan and L'Arpettaz chairlifts. The L'Aiguille chairlift is for more experienced skiers only, as the Col de l'Aiguille boasts only red and black slopes.
Those looking for a wider choice of slopes will find the Paradiski ski area with more than 400 kilometres of pistes just a few kilometres away.
