ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
With a combination of instruction and mountain guiding for six days this is the perfect introduction to ski touring for adventurous skiers with some off piste experience under their belts already. From your front door a minibus can transport you to wherever your guide recommends for the best snow conditions available - groups will regularly ski a different resort each day for a week! Groups will be organised based on ski level. This holiday is aimed at Advanced (Purple) and Expert (Gold) off piste skiers. If you are unsure of your level please see our Ski Profile Page. At the end of the week you will receive an updated grading from your Ski Club Rep.
All our trips here are based in the comfortable and welcoming Auberge sur la Montagne. Sue and Andy will be your knowledgeable hosts and their team provide excellent service and cuisine. You will be staying in a twin share room on a chalet board basis. Chalet board includes breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner.
Flights are not included but a set transfer is available. The transfer will depart from Geneva airport on the outbound date at 14:30. Please arrive at the airport at least an hour before our transfer departs and meet your Ski Club Rep at the Jazz Café in the arrivals hall. They will be wearing their blue Ski Club jacket. The return transfer will arrive back to Geneva airport on the inbound date by 12:00 noon.
The resort is very peaceful and quiet, offering up rustic French charm and is a far cry from the bustling resorts located in the rest of the Tarentaise. Although many visit the area for the incredible off piste terrain, the amount and quality of on piste skiing on offer should not be forgotten. With use of the hotel’s minibus throughout the trip, you can visit the nearby resorts of Val d'Isère, Tignes, Les Arcs, La Plagne and La Rosière. For more information on Sainte Foy, please visit our Resort Guide.
If you require ski hire, The Hotel Auberge sur la Montagne house their own rental shop with an excellent range of high quality equipment. Please contact them on firstname.lastname@example.org. It is advisable to pre-book in advance.
