Facilities in Sainte Foy Station

The small but cozy centre of Sainte Foy has a supermarket (the Sherpa), where the basics for several meals can be bought. Furher on you will find the bakery (only in wintertime; in summer the supermarket will sell the croissants ..), the ski-shops (for renting and buying ski-gear), small restaurants / bar with a nice, sunny terrace on the wooden deck. The pizza's of the Pitchouli are worth the money; take away or dining in the restaurant. In the last case, make sure you place a reservation when you want to have a pizza at their place (mainly in wintertime).

At a level lower (via the stairs in the middle of the wooden deck) you will find the Office du Tourism and the selling point of the ski-passes. Further (towards the skilift) you will find more restaurants, the ESF-skischool and the agency for your newspaper.

Sainte Foy has separated waste facilities, glass, paper and general rubbish need to be put in there specific waste bins. You can find these in the bend of the road, close to the location where you enter the ski piste.

Facilities in Bourg St. Maurice

This city provides the generic urban facilities, such as a hospital with a first aid department in case of a (ski) accident. Also a big open air swimming pool can found and some companies with whom you can start your mountain river activities. For the bulk of groceries we recommend one of the big supermarkets located just at the edge of Bourg (coming from the side of Sainte Foy at a 20 minutes drive): the Super U and Intermarche.
