Corporate Skiing, Team Building and Client Entertainment
Within our beautiful chalets, we provide a unique environment for Corporate Skiing, Client Entertainment and Team-Building. Invite your top clients or take the team away from it all to have fun, talk and build on your business success. Let us work with you to customise your event itinerary and meet your objectives.
Our chalets are co-located next door to one another within a small hamlet, where we can easily accommodate group sizes of up to 100 people and provide you with meeting and dining facilities suitable to your specific needs. It goes without saying, but as successful entrepreneurs, we know how to work within your desired budget.
We understand the need for flexibility; we can organise your event to specifically to your requirements – no fixed transfer days, no fixed menus, no coach schedules and you don’t even need to spend spare time in one particular ski resort.
It doesn’t matter if your team are beginners or expert skiers or may not be skiers at all. Any time given to outdoor/leisure can be traditional time on the slopes, or activities as diverse as dog sledding or snow shoe walking; our concierge can organise all this for you.
We work with you to customise your event and meet your business requirements.

We can work within the tightest budget, and an event for a small team can cost only a few thousand pounds, but as a value multiplier, you will achieve key employee retention, customer loyalty or management communication way in excess of the expense. Likewise, we can put together a prestigious package for over 100 people and allocate our whole resort team to meeting your needs. Availability is the only factor, so we recommend you plan your event as early as possible. We would always work with you as far as possible if there were any last minute changes to be incorporated.
Your corporate skiing event may be one of the most important strategic investments you will make this year, and we will help you reach your objectives without exceeding your budget. A value multiplier, corporate ski team-building will achieve more than any bonus or pay rise you could offer.

The skiing in Sainte Foy is relaxed with uncrowded pistes and short lift queues.

Non-skiers will also have energetic mountain activities available to them.

We can organise mountain guides for you to enjoy the best of the off piste world and a great cardio burn touring across the mountains. Touring bindings and ‘skins’ will be organised for you to allow you to skin up the sides of the pistes, walk across the mountain and ski back down to meet the others at the end of the day.
Sainte Foy, famous for its dramatic mountainside views and places of historical interest, can be explored even further when ski touring. For those that would like a slightly easier off piste adventure, routes are available to take you through the beautiful snow-locked Monal village.

About Sainte Foy
It is worth noting that of all Alpine locations, Sainte Foy is perfect for Corporate Events. Placed number one in a The Sunday Times article on the “Top 50 Best Ski Resorts on the World”.
Located close to the base of the Isere valley, it is the most accessible of Tarentaise mountain resorts. Just 20 minutes from the local hub of Bourg St Maurice, it can be accessed easily by road, and for the most prestigious events, helicopter transfers can drop you 30 metres from the front door.
Sainte Foy is served by a number of international airports, including Geneva, Grenoble, Lyon, and closest of all Chambery – all accessed by regular flights internationally, or from the UK, London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle & Edinburgh. The road trip is approximately two hours (1½ hours from Chambery), and our chauffeured collection service can meet you at any of these airports. Similarly, helicopter transfer can be arranged, with road back-up should the weather (very occasionally) prevent flying.
Sainte Foy has a number of bars and restaurants to cater for everything from pizza to traditional Savoyard fare. Your Venture Ski resort team can also recommend and arrange transport to a few special “off-the-beaten-track” local secrets where the cuisine and experience are second to none.
The picturesque village and ski area of Sainte Foy, nestled between Les arcs and Val d’Isere, is perfectly located in the heart of the Tarentaise. Our chalets are based on the edge of this beautiful village. Sainte Foy is quiet and exclusive with queuing very rare, and is often considered the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the entire region. Sainte Foy is where ski instructors come to ski on their day off with quiet pistes and some of the best off piste areas in the world.
Only a few minutes drive away, you can access several other world-class ski resorts including Val d’Isere, Tignes, Les Arcs and La Rosiere. The Sainte Foy ski pass is inexpensive but allows you half-price skiing at each of the neighbouring resorts. Our ski hosts can give you lots of guidance so you can make the most of any excursion.

It is located at the heart of the Tarentaise and the edge of the Vanoise National Park. Our brand new Luxury Chalets are perfectly located in the ‘best of the best’ mountain areas in the Alps. But they are also a little off the usual beaten tourist traps, and located in the exclusive La Bataillette area where privacy and quiet are paramount and the chair lift is only a five minute walk from the door.
