Shapers' Paradise Map

So-named as it's a particular favourite zone of backcountry freestyle skiers and snowboarders, Shapers' Paradise is the easiest of Sainte Foy's Natur'ide secured but unpisted runs.

Description

As with Morion and Crystal Dark, the ski patrol mark the route with poles. This is a pretty gentle area with some fun rolling terrain to learn the ropes of skiing off piste. As the name suggests, there are also some neat spots to build a kicker if that's your jam.

If you turn off the Plan des Veaux piste slightly before the poles, there is some steeper terrain with some small chutes and cliffs to play on.

Slopes become slightly steeper at around 25-30 degrees.
