Guardians of the Mountain
The Natural Mountain is the outcome of a shared determination that has developed in Sainte Foy: to preserve the natural mountain environment and to design unique experiences for its visitors, valuing this exceptional heritage offered by nature.
For younger guests, Sainte Foy has conceived the Natur’Protect missions: 4 fun-filled experiences that raise awareness about the mountain environment and sustainable development. With these experiences designed in partnership with the “Du Flocon à la Vague” association of the Water Family, your children will be enthralled by the discovery of the fauna that populates our mountains, while also learning how to protect it.
The Natur’Renard mission takes you on a small ungroomed blue slope, winding between the larch trees, allowing children their first experience of natural gliding, while also introducing them to the life of the fox. Children call out to the fox using bells before discovering it in a clearing, in the form of a wooden sculpture crafted by a local artisan.
The Natur’Marmotte mission, located at the intersection of the Chapelle and Grand Solliet slopes, offers both an entertaining insight into the lives of marmots and also awakens children to the importance of protecting nature and adopting eco-friendly actions. In this area, best explored on foot, children can see the marmot burrow, an old milk cellar that now houses a wooden sculpture of 4 sleeping marmots inside.
At the summit of the Marquises chairlift, Natur’Chamois provides little budding skiers with the golden rules for off-piste skiing: always go out with a companion, stay informed about snow conditions, and carry the right equipment. A first step towards becoming an experienced Natural Skier.
Natur’Ecureuil, located on the Plan Bois plateau, is an immersive forest trail offering an eco-friendly experience for children: on foot in the summer and on snowshoes in the winter, little ones traverse this trail for a nature walk discovering the fauna and flora of Sainte Foy, explained playfully through 5 thematic interpretation panels.
Activity and coloring books are provided for children. Collect yours from the Tourist Office or download them via the links below.
