To help get you sorted for your ski trip to Sainte Foy, below is a list of essential information. For a full listing of local businesses please visit the comprehensive Sainte Foy tourist website… www.saintefoy-tarentaise.com.
Ski passes can be purchased online http://www.saintefoy-ski.com or up at the ski station. Weekends (particularly Sunday the main changeover day) can be quite busy. If purchasing in person be sure to take passport photos of all the family (there is a photo booth there if needed) and photo ID. We would advise buying ‘Carte Neige’ insurance as this is your ticket off the mountain if something bad happens to you. There are discounts offered for families.
There are discounts offered on day ski passes at surrounding resorts with a 6 day or more Sainte Foy pass. The resorts included are Espace Killy (Tignes & Val d’Isere), Les Arcs, La Rosière & La Plagne. You must take your Sainte Foy ski pass with you as well as proof of purchase (receipt).
