Getting Around the Village

After getting settled in, the Station Sainte Foy village is petite enough for one's feet to provide all the locomotion required to get around. But as with everything there are exceptions, some of the day car parks & a few accommodation providers are far enough down the hill that the village ski bus may become necessary. The bus runs regularly except for 3 x 45min breaks throughout the day.
