With 2500 available beds, Sainte Foy is a nice sized resort that retains its spirit and the traditions of the local hospitality. Sainte Foy is the place where you will find passionate skiers and snowboarders living in perfect harmony. Skiers, snowboarders, telemark skiers all enjoying their powdery dream be it only a few metres from the marked pistes or in the forest.
