Sainte Foy is a small town in the Tarentaise Valley, on the road from Bourg Saint Maurice to Tignes and Val d'Isere, right in the heart of the French Alps. There is superb local singletrack, some of the most flowy trails in the valley, accessed by a mix of vehicle uplift and the chairlift up in Sainte Foy resort. The trails running off the back of Les Arcs lead back to the chalet and access to the funicular in Bourg Saint Maurice is quick and easy. The resorts of La Rosiere, La Thuile, La Plagne and Tignes are also just a short van-ride away. We like to ride the whole valley, cherry-picking the best singletrack from each resort. This gives us a huge variety of trails to ride, from mellow valley trails to steep forest switchbacks to stunning high-Alpine pastures. The thick forests which blanket the sides of the valley are riddled with endless kilometers of singletrack. This was mostly built by hand many years ago to allow the passage of people and animals from the winter byres up to the summer grazing pastures. This gives them a unique combination of perfect not-too-steep, not-too-flat gradient, incredible drainage (no mud, ever!) and a surface which, when it's not rocky, rooty and technical is a deep bed of pine needles which are silky smooth and grippy to ride on.

Our aim is always to ride the very best singletrack for each group, with the minimum amount of climbing. We use a mix of both chairlift and vehicle uplift to link the trails seamlessly together, giving you more of the best riding around. All of our holidays are fully-guided, meaning you get the best info on what's coming up, you get to ride trails carefully selected to suit your group and you don't waste time navigating or trying to find that hidden singletrack trail in the forest. Our team of guides has a cumulative experience of over 30 years of mountain biking in the valley and we hold qualifications which are fully-recognised to allow us to guide in France.
