The N face of Foglietta is the classic from Ste Foy. Val d'Isère is only about 10 - 15 minutes or so. Les Arcs is accessible really quickly just across the valley via Villaroger, about a 5 minute drive.

Pretty straightforward to get to the top of it - just shoulder your skis and walk up then pole/walk along the top. Choosing your line might just be a little more complicated. Franck Grand is a local guide in Ste Foy if you decide you need one.
