Epic TV: A La Française Ep. 4. This Secret Resort Holds Powder Perfection in the Alps
French Skiing. French Riders. No Baguettes. This is a journey into the entire French ski scene brought to you by some of the best French riders on the planet. Ride with ze crew as they travel throughout the Alps and the Pyrenees, dropping, jibbing, freeriding and sessioning some of the best spots in France. Vive le freeski, vive les montagnes - this is A French Winter.
When the Alps finally got a snow dump, Aymeric Cloerec, Bertrand Clair, and Guillaume Harleaux knew exactly where to go: the under-the-radar resort of Sainte Foy. It might be close to the big resorts, but Sainte Foy offers a little corner of relative solitude among the crowds. And with solitude comes...powder! Don't take our word for it, watch the boys tear up the forests, pillow lines, and cliff jumps that abound in this semi-secret area. See anyone else? Nope. Neither do we. Shhhhhhh...
