New Piste for Sainte Foy – Graded as a Red Run
A new ski piste will be ready for the coming season 2017 – 18. The ‘Camp Filluel’ run will be graded as a Red piste and leads off to the left of the Marquise lift. It starts at 2425m and over its length of 1500m drops 375 vertical metres. It terminates at 2050m in an area of good snow cover. The slope is South West facing and catches the early sun. Also known as the ‘shoulder’, it rejoins the Grand Solliet piste.
The new piste offers additional skiing options for using the Marquise area.
Other improvements include 10-15 new snowmakers, which will be added to the Arpettaz, Chapelle, Savonnettes and Grand Solliet pistes to improve the conditions as necessary.
Additionally, new safety equipment will be added to the Arpettaz chairlift to prevent children, in particular, from sliding under the safety bar (anti – submarining).
