This hidden gem maintains its authentic alpine feel and packs a serious skiing punch. With access to some of the best terrain in the Tarentaise, this day touring trip is great for experienced off piste skiers looking to venture further from the beaten track.

All our trips here are based in the comfortable and welcoming Auberge sur la Montagne. Julian and The Auberge Team will be your knowledgeable hosts and their team provide excellent service and cuisine. You will be staying on a chalet board basis. Chalet board includes breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner.
This holiday is on a twin share basis. If you are a solo traveler, then you will be placed in a room with someone of the same gender. Single rooms may be available upon request. These are subject to our hotel room allowance. If you require a single room, please book early to avoid disappointment.
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. Please do not book your flights until the holiday has been confirmed.
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 Sainte Foy Resort Guide.
If you need to hire skis and / or boots the Ski Set in Sainte Foy Station is good. This can be pre-booked with a discount through the ski club website.
If you own your own ski touring equipment, then it may be worth taking this with you on your trip. If you do not own your own kit, then this can normally be easily rented in resort. However, please be aware of the cost of hiring this equipment in resort.
