Historical snow in Sainte Foy
Sainte Foy Snow Report – 2013-2018 (5 season average)
Skiing in Sainte Foy: Although the vast areas of easy (and not quite so easy) off-piste are highly rated, with over 1,000 metres of vertical drop, the resort also has something to offer mixed-level skiers and boarders. Sainte Foy has an excellent snow record throughout the winter thanks to the north-west exposure. Besides the runs that snake through the larch trees and ski lifts which access many official listed nature trails (three black, one red and a blue), an exhilarating heli-drop can take you to even wilder, more awe-inspiring landscapes across the Italian border!.
