The ski station of Ste. Foy is a little gem of off piste heaven thus attracting many off piste junkies for day trips from other resorts like Val d’Isère, Tignes and Les Arcs as well as those seeking a week long of fluffy powder. Being a small resort with just four chairlifts, it is great for families and beginners or less confident intermediates. The town itself is slightly further down the valley than the station and has expanded somewhat over the last view years and now offers some lovely restaurants serving local cuisine and a couple of bars for those searching for a cold beer after a hard day’s ski.
La Rosière is considered to be a quieter and gentler resort than its neighbours. It is home to many long, intermediate runs providing a perfect location for families. Although being a rather small ski area, there are some great (and quite often untracked) off piste runs and it is linked to La Thuile in Italy which is a perfect excuse to enjoy a day trip over to La Thuile and sample some fresh Italian food.
